Waiting On Wednesday #47: Neferet's Curse by P.C. & Kristin Cast


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




~Neferet's Curse (House of Night Novellas #3) by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Hardcover, 160 pages
Expected publication: February 19th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin
The White City, 1893: In turn-of-the-century Chicago, with the World’s Fair bringing bustle and excitement to her home city, sixteen-year-old Emily Wheiler should be reveling in her youthful beauty and the excitement around her. But her whole life changed when her mother died, leaving her to be the Lady of Wheiler House. Her father, a powerful bank president, is at the center of an important social hub for the booming young city, and he needs Emily to do everything her mother would have – to be a good hostess and make sure the mansion runs smoothly.

As Emily uneasily tries to replace her mother, she also longs for more… for love and a life of her own. When a handsome young man notices her at one of her father’s parties, it seems that her hopes may finally be coming true. Until her father forbids her to see him – or any other man – and starts revealing a darkly violent side that even he can’t understand.

At last, afraid for her life and with nowhere to turn, Emily is Marked by a vampyre and brought to the Chicago House of Night, where she begins a magickal new life that should allow the wounds from her past to heal. But as she gains strength, and a powerful new name, she carries a dark need to wreak vengeance on the man she trusted most.

From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to powerful seductress, Neferet's journey begins...


~Why I am waiting:
The last few books from House of Nights have not been that good I think, personally, but I do quite like the novellas. They're much better so I can't definite wait for this one about Neferet.

  2. I gave up on this series a couple of books ago just cause I felt like they were dragging. I may go back to them once the series is finally finished. Glad you are enjoying the novellas though!!!

    1. The novellas are way better in my eyes. But thay may be because there isn't any Zoey in them. :P
