This week for Waiting on Wednesday, hosted at Breaking the Spine, I am featuring a sequel to a book I loved. The first book is called Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey, I read this before I started my blog so I don’t have a review, but this book was fantastic! I loved Jessica and Lucius’ courtship and learning about his past. The ending for that book also kept me on my toes. I liked not knowing exactly what was going to happen and I am sure we will see that from Beth in the future.
From this point on if you have not read the first book this is going to be a bit spoilery so be forewarned.
Okay, so onto the book I want to talk about, Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. I am so excited that Beth is going to let us revisit this world again and catch up on Jessica and Lucius. I was so bummed when the first book was over, but I was happy enough with the ending Beth gave us. I was also excited when she gave us a short story on her blog with the Wedding between Jessica and Lucius. Which you can find here if you have not read it yet. It was great to see how that event transpired and gave me some more resolution in their releationship. I actually thought that was going to be it for these two characters, so I was super excited to hear Beth was writing with this book. Alright enough from me here is a summary from Goodreads:
When Jessica Packwood found out she was a Romanian vampire princess, she had the shock of her teenage life. Turns out that was the easy part. Now, married to Prince Lucius Vladescu, she has to claim her throne and convince a vampire nation she’s fit to be their queen. But Jess can’t even order a decent meal from her castle’s Romanian staff, let alone deal with devious undead subjects who would love to see her fail.
And when Lucius is accused of murdering a vampire Elder and imprisoned without the blood he needs, Jessica finds herself alone, fighting for both their survivals.
Desperate to clear her husband’s name and win his release, Jess enlists the help of her best friend Mindy Stankowicz and Lucius’s mysterious Italian cousin, Raniero Lovatu. But both of them are keeping some dark secrets. Can Jess figure out who to trust – and how to rise to power – before she loses everything, including the vampire she loves?
Full of romance, mystery, and danger, the highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side shows that sometimes a princess has to earn her “happily ever after” – with a sharpened stake in hand.
Sounds great right? I know I am crazy excited about it! I cannot wait! Unfortunatly this book does not come out till next January, that is 2012 people! I know. I am going to be waiting for a while on this one, but I am still psyched. So what books are you waiting on this week?
