About

I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for the week is:

Coming March 2010 from Avon, in paperback

The Extraordinary Adventures of Emma Andrews, Victorian Lady and Vampire Hunter!

A young widow with an uncertain inheritance; a mysterious guest with unclear motives; a child in peril; and the dark, rain-lashed moors—all set the mood for this first novel in an historical gothic series in which a Victorian woman discovers that she is a vampire hunter. Twenty-five year old widow Emma Andrews grew up in the shadow of her mother’s madness, so when she arrives at Dulwich manor in the midst of a plague and soon thereafter begins to see apparitions, her family fears fate has finally caught up with her. But one guest among them knows Emma’s visions are more than a trick of the mist. Valerian Fox has hunted the great vampire lord Marius through time and continents, and he knows that Emma’s senses are heightened by a legacy that runs through her blood. When Emma’s young cousin is marked for death, Emma and Valerian must disregard propriety to prepare for battle. Poised at the intersection of life and death, uncertain of who she can trust, Emma finds that in order to save the most innocent among them she must embrace the inheritance she has feared and denied.

Now this sounds like a nice change of pace: a female vampire hunter… but the story takes place in the past! Looks good to me.
