Waiting on Wednesday #15

21 Dec 2011

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Blood Born (Blood Prophecy #1)
Author: Jamie Manning
Publisher: Pendrall Publishing 
Expected Release Date: April 24th 2012

Waking up in a coffin hungry for blood is only the beginning for sixteen-year-old Ava Blue. When Chance Caldon, the hottie who dug her up, tells her that she’s half vampire, Ava’s world really turns upside down.

Half vamp? Ava can’t believe it...she doesn't even know what that means! Not until Aldric, a thousand-year-old vampire, shows up and tells her it’s true--and that he’s the one who turned her. Then Ava truly begins to believe what she is. Now, she has to deal with a sudden and powerful bloodlust, the desire to see Aldric dead, and her growing crush for Chance. Ava knows she's a monster now, she can feel it; and her life is over.

But redemption isn’t lost. Aldric is giving her a chance to regain her humanity. The price? Kill a hundred vampires, or remain a bloodsucker forever.

So Ava sets out to get her life back. But killing vampires begins a battle that could destroy everything she is working toward. In the end, Ava's decisions will forever change her life and the lives of those she loves.

I seem to be in the mood for vampire novels! This sounds like a super creepy read- I swear I'm going to have nightmares when I read this :S Let's hope this won't be another cliched vampire novel (but I'll probably like it anyway, since I have a soft spot for vampire-related books ):D

What are you waiting on this week?
