The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 4 (Dark-Hunter Manga) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
(St. Martin's Griffin 01 March 2011 / $9.99) - Product Description: In the war against vampires, mankind has only one hope: The Dark-Hunters. Ancient warriors who died of brutal betrayal, the Dark-Hunters have sworn themselves into the service of the goddess Artemis to protect us.
It's a pact with pretty good perks. Immortality, power, psychic abilities, wealth and a cool wardrobe. But it comes with a few drawbacks: fatal sun poisoning and a new, irreparable dental problem. But aside from the fangs and nocturnal lifestyle, it's not so bad.
In this volume, the adventure continues with Talon and Sunshine as they face off against the Greek and Celtic gods bent on making a major comeback. (Source: St. Martin's Griffin)
Twin Spica, Volume: 06 by Kou Yaginuma
(Vertical 01 March 2011 / $10.95) - Product Description: Asumi's latest and most challenging flight simulation trial continues. She along with her classmates have been put into small escape pods, the actual pods that the International Space Station currently uses, to simulate traveling through space and an atmosphere re-entry. The pods are then covered and transported into the Japanese wilderness where after some rough handling and a designated allotment of time the pods automatically open up leaving the students disorientated and desperate to find civilization.
While the pod simulation course is clearly rigorous, there is no doubt that the survival element once the pods open up is much more grueling to these young prospective space travelers. Each one will have to use everything they have learned so far in class to find their way to a designated rendezvous spot. Unfortunately for Asumi, some of her friends will not be able to make it on their own. This was to be expected. Obviously the entire course was designed to weed out those who lacked the right stuff. However, no one ever imagined these particular students would struggle and how they would react to the environment might be a better gauge for their character than any test has ever shown.
And then it's mid-terms. The TSS is abuzz as this year's exams now provide an additional element to space education...Language training. Apparently one student nailed every other exam but English, where she just eeked out a D. Does that mean she had a perfect score up that point?! (Source: Vertical)
