Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Bloodwitch by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: May 13th 2014

A gripping tale about loyalty, power, and the quest for freedom Vance Ehecatl was raised with every luxury he could imagine in a beautiful greenhouse within the powerful empire of Midnight. Vampires are the only guardians Vance has ever known since he was abandoned by his shapeshifter family as a baby quetzal, and he is grateful to them for generously providing for all of his needs. When an act of violence forces Vance from his sheltered home, he is startled to meet Malachi Obsidian, a fellow shapeshifter with conflicting ideas about Midnight and its leader, Mistress Jeshickah.

Malachi claims Vance is a bloodwitch, who Jeshickah and her trainers, Jaguar and Taro, are trying to control. Vance doesn't know anything about the rare and destructive magic Malachi says he possesses, and he can't believe Jeshickah would use it to hurt others. But when his friends begin falling ill, Vance starts to realize his perfect world may not be as flawless as it seems. Now Vance must decide who to trust-the vampires he's always relied upon, or the shapeshifters who despise them.
Why am I waiting on this?
  • Fantasy series with Vampires and Shapeshifters? Also Bloodwitch? I want.
  • I am a sucker for covers, and this cover is awesome

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?!

There's actually something about this cover that I don't like. I mean...I LIKE it...but I'm not in LOVE with it...I think maybe it's missing something for me.
