Waiting on Wednesday 4.25.12

April 25, 2012 Fun Stuff 22

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Neferet’s Curse (House of Night Novella #3)
Author: P.C. and Kristin Cast.
Release Date: July 17, 2012 (or February 2013, depending on the website you visit)
Publisher: Macmillan/St. Martin’s Griffin

Summary: In the third House of Night novella, the secret history we’ve all been waiting for is finally revealed…  Neferet, the Tulsa House of Night’s darkly seductive High Priestess, wasn’t always a powerful vampyre, but she has always been beautiful. Raised in turn-of-the-century Chicago in a motherless home, her beauty makes her the prey of unwanted attention and abuse, leaving her with scars that will never heal – and a Darkness that will eventually need to find its way out. But when she is Marked and gains strength, both physical and magickal, she turns her anger into power and looks for a way to regain what was stolen from her. From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to powerful seductress, Neferet’s journey begins…

This is a story I’ve wanted to read for ages! I know- the whole House of Night series kind of jumped the shark a few books back, but I still like it. And I will still read it. And really- how often do we get back story on the villains?

Plus, I think that cover is my favorite of the entire series.

    I haven’t read any of the books in the House of Night series but my friend’s thinking of buying the whole series, so I hope she finally decides to do it and lend the books to me. Haha. Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

      It was my favorite favorite favorite paranormal series when it started. Then it jumped the shark. But like I said… I’ll keep reading it. I tend to be very loyal to the authors I love.

    First off, thanks for visiting the Daily Bookmark and for the birthday wishes! : )
    Secondly, your blog is gorgeous. Seriously gorgeous. I’m a new follower in every which way I can. ; )

    Finally, although I haven’t read the House of Night series , this sounds great and may be the catalyst to get me to read the series now. I love stories about the villains and how they got to be so… villainous, for lack of a better term. Not to mention, great cover! Thanks for sharing!

      I’m behind too – I own both of the first two, but I haven’t read either of them.

    *blush* I have not read ANY of the House of Night books. No, I take that back, I think I did read the first one a while back. I love P.C. Cast’s other, adult series, though!… I just really need to try to get into this one!

    Thanks for sharing!

      I keep waiting for her to write more! Or even more of her YA series that she wrote solo.

    I haven’t read any of the House of Night series yet, but I’m thinking of trying them as audiobooks. However, to hear that the series “jumped the shark” isn’t very encouraging. But I totally love the phrasing.

    I used to be a big fan of the HON series but for some reason I got a turn off it. Maybe I’ll come back to it someday. I love the cover of this one though.

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM

    I really liked the first few books in the series but then they started to go a little off track. LoL I still pick them up from my library when they come out though.
