Paranormal - Urban Fantasy New Book Releases

I just did something fun and informative. I logged into my Amazon.com account and clicked on Gina's Recommendations then searched for New Releases of Books. Amazon (of course) knows my buying history which includes mostly Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Book purchases - besides having my books for sale there, too!

Here's the lowdown on what books popped up w/brief synopses, several of which I will purchase either in print or ebook versions (some may also be a newly released paperback version of the hardback):

Dark Predator (Carpathian) by Christine Feehan (September 6, 2011):

For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.
The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the inevitable consequences of a bloody family legacy-and in the deliverance of a lifemate he never could have imagined...

 Heroes of Olympus, The, Book Two: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan (October 4, 2011):
In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a quest:

To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea. . .
