Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine to showcase books we are patiently awaiting.
My WoW for the week:
Welcome to Vamp City - a haven for vampires created by a powerful sorcerer in the 1870s. It may look like a crumbling version of a human city, but there is one small exception: the sun never shines, and vampires have free reign. They live for pleasure only and come and go from this paradise as they wish. But as the magic starts to fail and those within become trapped, they know only a sorcerer can save them. But the sorcerers, at least those powerful enough, are all gone.
Quinn Lennox knows nothing of the power she wields. All she knows is that the strange things she once chalked up to a child's imagination have started to happen to her again. While searching for a lost friend, Quinn and her brother Zack stumble into a strange, dark otherworld that only she can see. When they're attacked, and Zack abducted, Quinn is rescued by a dark, dangerously handsome vampire who takes her to his home.
The Vampire terrifies, then seduces Quinn, drinking her blood, and in doing so discovers her magic. She's the one they've been looking for. But Quinn's only concern is finding Zack. So when the Vampire delivers her to his cruel master (duty trumps desire), she finds a way to escape. The Vampire goes after her. Not only is she the only hope for VC, but she's inexplicably intrigued him, and he's not letting her go again.
