Sherrilyn Kenyon's new series - The League - Book 1: Born of Night

I haven't pushed too far into the paranormal genre that's spreading like wildfire in the book world so I'm not terribly familiar with Sherrilyn kenyon but I've heard good things about her writing and keep intending to check out some of her books.

She's got a new series, The League for which she's releasing the first book Born of Night this week. To help promote it, the first 9 chapters are available online over at Google books. The writing seems engaging. I'll work through the chapters and the ploy might just entice me to buy the book...we'll see. :)

An interesting new (or fairly new) trend is for new fiction to have an online book trailer to go with it. Check out the following trailer...if you didn't know better, you might think this was for a video game or some other media. It's interesting the way this is produced. I haven't decided yet what to think of some of the trailers I've seen. This one seems to be bigger budget and thus feels more engaging.

Here's the press release style info about Kenyon and her latest book.

New from St. Martin's Press is #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon's 3-book series, 'The League'! With over 19 million books in print, Sherrilyn Kenyon is renowned the world over as "the reigning queen of the paranormal genre that she pioneered long before the world had heard of Twilight." Fans (also lovingly known as 'Kenyon's Minions') are at the edge of their seats in anticipation for this thrilling new series. The first book from 'the League' series, 'Born of Night', will be available September 29th.

If there are any Kenyon fans reading this, I'd love to hear your take on her books. They sound like fun reads...if I were to jump into her books this fall, where would you recommend I start?
