"Waiting on" Wednesday - Blood Born

Hosted by Breaking The Spine, this section will feature future upcoming releases that I personally am excited about. These will generally be coming up later in the year. Let me know what you're looking forward to, or even what you're writing, and maybe I'll feature it here as well.

Jamie Manning - Blood Born

• Pub. Date: April 24, 2012
• Publisher: Pendrell Publishing
• Format: Hardcover 360pp
• Age Range: Young Adult

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've talked to Mr. Jamie Manning on Twitter, and he's pretty cool. I did request an ARC through the publisher, but I think I'll wait for the finished copy because I've been tired of ARCs being different than the final copy. We'll see! Anyway, I hope this is as fantastic as the author! Hope everyone is having a super Wednesday, and leave me your WoW link!!


  1. Very cool. I like the premise of this book. Kill 100 vamps so you don't turn into one. Good pick.

  7. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied that Blood Born wasn’t “just another” vampire story. I’m so glad I read this because I truly enjoyed Blood Born. This was unique and a refreshing read packed with action.
