Waiting On: Blood Born

Blood Born (Blood Prophecy #1) by Jamie Manning
To be published: April 24, 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. {}

Ok so I may be a bit biased on this week's pick, but it's only because I KNOW this book is going to be fantastic!  Jamie is one of my good friends I've met through book blogging & I am SO SO SO excited to read his debut novel!  It's been awhile since I've fallen in love with a vampire tale, so I am more than ready to get sucked in to this new series :)

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



  1. Hmm...Interesting. But I don't get how you can be half vamp if a vampire turned you. Guess we'll have to find out.

  2. I haven't heard of this before, but it sounds really interesting. Definitely adding it to my to-read list! Thanks a lot for sharing!
