Waiting on Wednesday #19: The Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz February 12, 2014

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!

My pick of the week is:

The Vampires of Manhattan (Vampires of Manhattan #1)

by Melissa de la Cruz

Coming: 9 September 2014

Publisher: Disney Hyperion

Summary:

The Vampires of Manhattan is “hipster horror”–the memorable characters from her Blue Bloods series are older and cooler than before, trying to build “Millennial” lives in the bustle of Manhattan while battling forces of evil and, of course, each other.

Hero of this sexy, paranormal action tale is Oliver Hazard-Perry, former human conduit, and Manhattan’s only human-turned-vampire, now the head of the Blue Bloods Coven. When his all-too-human lover is found murdered on the eve of the coven’s annual Four Hundred Ball–a celebration meant to usher in a new era in vampire society, and to mark the re-unification of the Coven after decades of unrest and decay–Oliver is devastated.

Now, not only is he trying to create a new world order for the immortal elite, he’s the prime suspect and is stalked by the newly installed head of the vampire secret police. Because according to the new rules, vampires who take human life can now be executed. Burned.


How can an immortal sentenced to die fight back? He has to find the killer–and the answers lie deep in vampire lore.


Why I’m excited:

I absolutely LOVED Melissa’s Blue Bloods series. It started with an impulse by and a return to the bookstore the next day to get book 2. I impatiently waited for each book after that. I loved her spin off Wolf Pact and was ecstatic when she said that there would be books with future cycles of vampires. The announcement of The Vampires of Manhattan was met with a bit of fangirling. I’m so happy Ollie is getting a chance to be front and centre of the vampire action. This is more adult leaning like Witches of East End, but I’m sure it’s still perfect for younger Blue Bloods fans!

Why I need you to be excited:

I need you to be excited because it’s high society, action, and a murder investigation. And of course, VAMPIRES! I was impressed with Melissa’s vampire restyling and I can’t wait to see the next chapter! Come explore a new side of NYC with me! (:
