What I’m waiting for : Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

The Vampire Academy series and Rose’s story are over with Last Sacrifice. But this universe will continue to live.

Bloodlines is the spin-off series to Vampire Academy. It’s the name of the first book and of the series. It’s set in the Vampire Academy world but will be about different characters : Sydney, the alchemist, will be the narrator, Adrian will be the male lead, Jill, Eddie and Abe (yay!). The story will be set in a human high school in California, bright and sunny which is problematic for vampires.

The Bloodlines series will include 6 novels.

I love Vampire Academy and I was sad when I’ve finished Last Sacrifice. I was also a little bit disappointed by the ending. Hopefully, we’ll have more Adrian in the spin-off series, I can’t wait for Bloodlines, I hope the novel will be as good as Vampire Academy!

Review : Crescendo, Becca Fitzpatrick

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush Hush #2)

Description

Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can’t figure out if it’s for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn’t answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

What I’m waiting for : Die for Me by Amy Plum

Die for Me by Amy Plum (Revenants #1)

May 10th, 2011 (US / UK)
HarperCollins (US) / Little, Brown (ATOM) (UK)

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life—and memories—behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant—an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.

I’m having an eye on this book since a while, and I just discovered that the author, Amy Plum, lives in France, near Tours! I’m lucky to be able to discuss with her on Twitter (@IHeartRevenants) and she’s adorable and curious about book bloggers and French readers.

The book will release next year in France thanks to Bayard. I love the UK cover, more than the US one, it’s so gorgeous ! It’s a little bit cliche with the Eiffel Tower but I like the color.

I’m very curious about this book and I hope I’ll meet Amy in Paris in May. 🙂
