WoW (aka Start Up the DeLorean): Third Blood by Kalayna Price

December 29, 2010

Note: Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I’ve searched. I really have. But there isn’t any cover art for Kalayna Price’s Third Blood. It must be something really special, because the book comes out February 2011. I feel like I’ve been raving about the Haven books all over the blogosphere. It’s just that I enjoyed them so, so much. I really can’t wait to find out what happens next between Kita and Nathaniel. And I’m on the edge of my seat about whether or not Kita will ever manage shifting again. The description is available, though, so eat your heart out:

Going home after five years is difficult. It’s harder still if you’ve changed species in the interim.

Kita Nekai, once the smallest shifter in Firth but now the newest vampire in the city of Haven, has no intention of returning home or informing her father and clan what she’s become. Not that she has a choice. When the mage who holds her death certificate in his hands demands Kita return to Firth as his errand runner, she has to comply. Of course, there is no leaving her sire, Nathanial, behind. Which means introducing daddy dearest to the man–well, vampire–she may be falling for and confessing that she’s lost the ability to shift. Talk about awkward.

Her homecoming goes from bad to worse when an attempt is made on her life, and Kita finds herself facing an unknown threat in a hostile world she never fit into in the first place. Can she survive long enough to complete the judge’s task, stand trial before the elders for the rogues she created while on the run, and help defend her father’s territory from an encroaching band of misfit shifters? Or is this cat down to her last life?

    This sounds like an interesting read. I’ll have to check out the first book in the series.

      Oh, you should. Especially if you liked the Mercy Thompson books. It’s good fantasy.

    Hey!
    Kalayna is so busy juggling her successful new Grave Witch series for ROC with her successful Kita Nekai series for us that she’s late finishing Third Blood. However we do expect to get it out sometime over the winter. Review copies in print or pdf are available to any blogger who drops me a note for my email list. Also review copies of books one and two: ONCE BITTEN and TWICE DEAD. Deb Smith, editor, Bell Bridge Books email editor@bellebooks.com
