On My Wishlist #80

This is a meme from Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track! This week I'm back to my favourite undead heros, vampires...
The Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequinn Teen (April 2012)
In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive. Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.
Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.

I confess I haven't read any of the Iron Fey series yet, but vampires are much more cup of tea than Fae and this sounds really cool. Plus how creepy is this cover?

Of Truth and Beast - Barb and JC Hendee
Publisher: Roc
Now, young Journeyor Wynn Hygeorht finds herself cast into the wilds on a dangerous quest for knowledge that may instead lead to her doom...

I love this series where vampires, or the Noble Dead are thrown into a traditional fantasy setting with elves, fae and vast journeys for legendary objects. This is the third book in the series and I want it! :-)
Destined For An Early Grave (Night Huntress 4)- Jeaniene Frost
Publisher: HarperCollins
Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about. Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.
Okay, so I haven't read Night Huntress books 2-3 yet (but they will be read soon!) but there's nothing like knowing that the next book in the series is waiting for you read.
So what do you think of my choices? Anything you have your eye on? :)


  1. Nice choices :) Especially the fantasy one ;)

  2. I can't wait for the Immortal rules. I have the first two books of Jeaniene Frost's series, but I still have to read them. Good selections!

  3. I'm not too fussed on vampires but in a traditional fantasy? Hmm sounds intriguing and I might have to check it out...goodreads here I come :)

  4. Awesome choices! I just picked up The Immortal Rules on NetGalley and cant wait to get to it! Thanks for stopping by Gimme The Scoop!

  5. The series that The Truth of Beasts belongs to looks intriguing-I'll have to check it out! I love the On My Wishlist event-it's so much fun to see what everyone wants!

  6. I'm currently reading TIR and really enjoying it so far! The cover is fab isn't it?! =)

  7. You just reminded me that I need to catch up on Cat & Bones. I think I'm like 2 books behind now. Hope you get to read all of these soon :)
