Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we just can't wait for!!

This week I just can't wait for the next installment in the Blood Knight Series by A.M. Hudson. The first two stories in the series, Knight of the Rose & The Knight's Descent are published completely online on her blog and are just great to read through. It's kind of like Twilight in reverse. You'll have to read it to find out why.

Here's a little teaser for you from the first book:

"Fear flooded my torso, and froze my limbs into place. The reflection that mirrors back is not me. She stares at me with her round eyes, and I can see familiarity in her heart-shaped face, and long, wavy brown hair. She straightened the front of her yellow, cotton, sundress, just as I did the same. The girl looks like me--but it’s not me anymore.

Everything that made me who I am has been left behind in a place that I can never return. The girl I see in the mirror now, has no heart, and when she smiles, it’s never for real. When I leave this house today--my dads house-—still not really mine, I will be painting on the carefully created persona, of a young, happy, teenage girl.

The scars on the surface of my face have long since faded, and reduced to nothing more than a silvery reminder of a tragic past. If I keep my face out of the sun, then they’re barely visible at all. It’s the ones on the inside that never really healed—-and probably never will."

Here is chapter 1 of Knight of the Rose. Just so you get started in the right place when you go to read the rest of the story! Check it out, for real. She's great! Very descriptive so it's almost like you can see everything right in front of you. Wonderful characters (some of them you just want to kick and say WAKE UP and then they go and do it on their own, and some of them are just so endearing it makes you want to melt). Literally, as I was reading she was publishing chapters and I kept refreshing my computer to see if, once I finished one, there was another one coming!
