I think the two on the list I am most excited about are Alloy of Law and Spectrum 18. Of course, The Eternal Night looks interestingn too, just because I really like Guillermo del Toro. But I don't know anything about the book, is it part of a series?

The Eternal Night is the third book in a trilogy beginning with The Strain. Briefly, vampires take over the Earth while a physician from the CDC fights valiantly but fruitlessly. I thought that the first one was competent, the second mostly filler, and I haven't been able to get past the first fifty pages of the third.
