"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pick is the Falling To Ash, the first novel in Karen Mahoney's new series of teen-vampire Moth's adventures. Below the description from goodreads:
Publication date: September 27, 2012
Publisher: Corgi Children's
Format: Paperback, 304 pages
You can’t choose your family... living or dead.
between two very different worlds, newly made vampire Moth is
struggling to find her place in either. Not only does she have to answer
to her strict Irish-Catholic Dad, but her over-protective maker, Theo,
is intent on making her the star attraction in his powerful Boston
vampire clan. Moth will have to pull off the double-act of the century
to please both of them...
Adding to her problems is the
dangerously attractive Jason Murdoch, a trainee vampire hunter who loves
to play cat and mouse in his spare time (Jace = cat; Moth = mouse). But
when the teenagers of Boston’s wealthiest families start to disappear,
it forces Moth and Jace into an uneasy truce. Will they be able to solve
the mystery behind the disappearances—before someone winds up undead?
I love Karen Mahoney's Iron Witch trilogy! So I'm really curious to see what the first full-length of her next series will be like. If the two Moth short stories published in the Kiss Me Deadly and The Eternal Kiss anthologies are any indication, it's gonna be awesome. Moth is such a kick-ass heroine! And I have so many questions about her world that I hope will be partially answered here. Also, I'm curious to see more of Jason and that unholy alliance they will apparently form.
Are you excited for Falling to Ash? Have you read any of the Moth short stories or any other of Karen's work? Feel free to discuss in the comments :)
