Waiting on Wednesday {16}


Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!

This week my WoW pick is...

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa

To be released: April 24, 2012


There's no official cover for this one yet, but I think Harlequin Teen did a fantastic job with this creepy placeholder, don't you? If this is a sample of what's to come, then this is VERY promising, in my opinion :)

Okay, so this past summer I ended up reading through the entire Iron Fey series on my Kindle in the span of about a week. And I completely, absolutely fell in love with them and Julie Kagawa's writing! And seeing as I loved them so much, I finally collected all of the books in paperback for my collection on my book shelf as well :)

AND THEN I hear that Julie has a new series coming out: a post-apocolyptic vampire series.

Um, I'm not sure about you, but this sounds pretty awesome to me. I remember seeing a really terrible movie of this a while ago (and I can't remember the title of it for the life of me), and I wanted to love it because the story was so cool but the execution was just awful.

Now, with this book? I'm not really worried. I've read Julie's other book, and I know she can write well. So I'm confident that she can take this exciting, thriller-esque storyline and make it into one extraordinary series. This is easily one of my most highly anticipated books of 2012!

Goodreads Synopsis:
In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.


Will you be reading Julie Kagawa's new series when it comes out? What book are you waiting on today? Feel free to leave a link to your WoW post in the comments so I can stop by :)
