The list author says: "These books are the epitome, bees knees, coolest cats on the YA paranormal/scifi scene.
If you liked Stephenie Meyer, but suspect there's something better out there... here is proof-positive! The YA paranormal/scifi scene has come leaps and bounds since 'Twilight' - now feast your reader's eye on these beauties."
"It's actually a really clever premise - vampire social experiment in which humans and vampires co-exist in a special-made town. Mayhem ensues. This is one of the smartest YA series out at the moment."
"Kelley Armstrong rules the adult paranormal scene with her 'Women of the Otherworld' series... now see her effortlessly switch readerships in this impressive trilogy (that has a new spin-off for 2011!) Werewolves, necromancers and demons - oh my! This is another smart YA paranormal read about a science experiment gone horribly wrong. And it has a love triangle - woot!"
"A dystopian book about a world ruled by order and perfection... when even your soul-mate is mapped out for you, what is left to choose? It will make you rage against the machine and question 'the man' while also warming your heart for the tender romance."
"An angel book done well. In Chadda's book, angels are not all they're cracked up to be... they wreak plague and havoc and it's down to one girl and her knights to stop the worst arc-angel of them all."
"A very different look at vampires with an interesting metaphor at the centre of their existence. Jinks is writing in a vampire back-lash... so if you're sick of vamps 'sparkling', this is the book for you! Darkly funny and painfully good."
