Speaking of which, I *bet* I could get this ARC signed for the lucky winner...
Anyway, the third stop on our Superhot Austin Authors ARC Giveaway tour is
BLESSED by Cynthia Leitich Smith (Candlewick, January 2011)
From the flap copy:
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?
Okay, you have to read this book!
