Frostbite Movie Update - Crowd Funding Campaign Coming Soon

We have a Frostbite Movie update and it sounds like this film actually has a really good chance as being made.According to the Official Vampire Academy Movie Facebook page (henceforth to be referred to as OVAM), the majority of the funds necessary to produce the movie have already been raised. The remainder will be raised through a crowd funding campaign.

So it comes down to this: Will enough fans want the film enough to fund it? Do you want it enough to fund it?

OVAM says we can expect more details this week. See the official announcement below

Dead Heat, the fourth book in Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega series, has a cover and a release date!




Dead heat is set to release March 3rd 2015. See the official Facebook announcement and plot summary below.



If you haven't read the Alpha and Omega series and you are already a fan of the Mercedes Thompson series, I urge you to give them a try. They have a different feel and unique characters that are very different from Mercy and her gang. The published titles are:

Carter and Sadie Kane with their group of apprentices may be the only things/people standing between the world and total decimation. Unfortunately, doomsday has a deadline and so does Walt.

Maximum Ride becoming Web Series!

Calling all Maximum Ride fans, This just in Collective Digital Studios is going to produce a on-line video series based on Maximum Ride!

"That ardent fan base is what CDS is counting on to help drive interest in the online series it plans to create now that it’s secured online rights to the books. The series will be executive produced by Patterson, CDS partner and Chief Content Officer Gary Binkow, Leopoldo Gout and Bill Robinson. Casting is underway, with plans to recruit talent from among notable YouTube creators."  Deadline Hollywood


I'm hoping that this series keeps all the best parts of the books (the characters, family like atmosphere of the flock and awesome set up) and improves upon the lack of worthwhile plot in the later books.

Maximum Ride is the second book series I've seen take the leap towards a web-series in the past year with the Morganville Vampires web series currently in post production. Do you think this will become the most prominent mode of book adaption with so many adaptions failing in the cinemas?

When a dangerous cult threatens the safety of Araluan, Halt must return to his roots, and confront the king hidden in his past.

The Kings of Clonmel provides background on how and why Halt came to be a ranger in a thrilling, but inconclusive tale.

In a rivetingly imaginative fantasy world, Kestrel is a wealthy general’s daughter whose father is pressuring her to either get married or join his military soon. However, Kestrel doesn’t want to do either, and one day at the market she buys a slave on instinct, who acts mysterious and seems to be harboring secrets.

Soon Kestrel is astonished to find herself falling for her new work servant, Arin. And while oblivious to the schemes going on behind her back, she will have to hide her feelings for him, lest everything orderly in her life fall apart.

This young adult novel is the first in a series, and while it does contain some kissing, profanity, violence, descriptions of dead bodies, and a few mentions of a man sleeping with another man’s wife, it is all handled well and in a fairly light manner.

Readers should be prepared for a medium-paced book full of conspiracies and tension, and with enough suspense to keep you reading. The Winner’s Curse is heavier on the romance than the fantasy elements, but both are well-written, and the abrupt ending will make you eager to read the sequel.

Those who enjoyed The Winner’s Curse may also like Leigh Bardugo’s similar Grisha Trilogy, Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick, and Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge.

Bridge of Snow is a prequel short story for this book that you can read for free on Tor.com.

I like the simple, elegant, and mysterious look.

In the summary of I Was Here, it is explained that the main character Cody’s best friend Meg has just committed suicide, and Cody, in shock, travels to Meg’s college town where she finds a computer file that uncovers secrets about her late friend’s death.

The book is described as “Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.”

Lastly, enjoy these four beautiful posters for the upcoming movie adaption If I Stay, which will hit theaters August 22!
