Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer

Release Date: February 21, 2011
Publisher: Philomel

Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. In the final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Andrea Cremer creates a novel with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages. A dynamic end to this breathtaking trilogy.

There are a lot of reasons why this book is wait-worthy. I just finished Wolfsbane a couple of nights ago (review to come!), so this series is fresh on my mind. I know cliffhangers tend to bother a lot of readers, but I usually enjoy the adrenaline and suspense of them... probably one of the many reasons that I love Richelle Mead. But (Damn You, Roger!) this one nearly killed me. I don't know that I'm thrilled about the first two covers in the series, but I absolutely love the color and feel of Bloodrose.

Normally I would try to sleuth my way into a little ARC-action, but Philomel is guarding those babies like the gates of hell. Better luck next time.

Oh, and Team Ren. Seriously, I don't even understand how there's a dispute about that.


  1. I love your blog, first of all! It's so clean & fresh!
    Secondly, this cover is wicked looking and it sounds really interesting! Happy Wednesday!

  2. I have not been able to read Wolfsbane yet but from all that I have heard it will be great! Definitely looking forward to this one too.

    My WOW:

  3. I still haven't read this series, but it's definitely one I want to get to at some point! I love werewolf stories.

    Feel free to check out my WoW here.

  4. I just took out Nightshade from the library today and am so excited to start reading it!

    Question: Isn't it interesting how different that first cover is from the next 2?? I saw that the series was first under Philomel, then Penguin, and now Philomel again-- but they stuck with the same cover design when they switched back... huh. I was just intrigued by this! :)

    You can see what I'm waiting for this week at the link below! Also, if you're interested in entering a giveaway OR participating in a giveaway hop, I have both going on right now! ;)
