To enter to win, just comment on this post before midnight on Tuesday, March 8, EST; we’ll announce the winner the next day!

Book Description

With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts of Tantalize and Eternal in a delicious dark fantasy her fans will devour.

Quincie Morris, teen restaurateur and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life–or undeath.

Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love–the hybrid-werewolf Kieren–of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who “blessed” her; and keep her dead parents’ restaurant up and running.

She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature–and his flaming sword–and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it’s too late.

Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie’s soul?

    Interesting twist adding a resturaunt, but I am not sure how this is any different from the multitude of post-Twilight books featuring Vampire and Werewolf relationships. The cover is beautiful.


  2. MrsOrman

    I know a lot of teenage girls (aka my high school students) who can’t get enough of the Twilight-style vampire books, so they will probably love this. :) Would love to share this with them!


  3. Christina

    The restaurateur bit reminds me a little of Sookie Stackhouse (in the novels for those who haven’t read,/seen True Blood she works as a waitress), I hope that means it reads like those novels too. I love paranormal fiction where the people actually have jobs and bills and such. It makes it much more believable to me. I look forward to seeing this out at B&N!
