Vampires, Dragons Top the eBooks Bestseller Lists at BooksOnBoard


Brisingr by Christopher Paolini tops the eBooks Bestseller List at BooksOnBoard ( for the third week of September. Brisingr is the third book in the Inheritance cycle, following Eragon (now a major motion picture starring Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich among others) and Eldest.

Devil Bones: A Novel by Kathy Reichs followed close behind. The fourth season of “Bones”, the popular TV series based on Kathy Reichs’ novels, premiered earlier this month. Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn, latest in the Twilight Vampire Fantasy Series, continues to top the charts more than a month after its release, trailed closely by Twilight, the first novel in the series. Eclipse, in the same series, also ranked in the Top 10. Another vampire series – the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris – featured prominently on the bestsellers list with Dead Until Dark and Living Dead in Dallas both ranking in the Top 10.

“Vampires have set reader’s imaginations on fire,” according to BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “The Twilight series is so popular that there a Twilight movie coming out, and True Blood, the series based on Charlaine Harris’s True Blood series, is already drawing a huge audience.”

If There be Dragons, a romantic mystery and suspense eBook from Kay Hooper, is also a bestseller, as is Anathem by science fiction master Neal Stephenson, author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Cryptonomicon. The list is rounded out by The Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer.

Bestselling author Karen Marie Moning again led the eBook Romance category with Faefever, the newest title in her Fever series. G.A. Aiken’s phenomenally popular new Dragon Actually and Dark Curse by Christine Feehan followed. The hot trio of eBooks in Samhain’s new Ménage and More Anthology, featuring titles from bestselling authors Jess Dee, Loraleigh James, and newcomer Jane Rylon, all occupied spots in the Top 10. Last week BooksOnBoard hosted a contest featuring podcasts from the Menage and More authors.

“The Menage and More contest was extremely successful,” says BookOnBoard’s Director of Operations Nathan Johnson. “The authors graciously sent us promotional goodies, and judging from the level of interest in the Menage and More Contest, our customers are as excited as we are.”

Other bestselling Romance eBooks include Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh, The Price of Desire by Jo Goodman, Noah by Jacquelyn Frank, and Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs,
