This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then some thing interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
For this week’s pick, I decided to look at books that maybe fit the whole spooky, it’s October and almost Halloween vibe that maybe I could even read right now. But a funny thing happened while I was ordering the list to look for books coming out in October. I found a book that I have to wait almost a whole year for! And it fit the whole spooky October theme. Perfect.
I am pretty sure this is just a working title and definitely not the final cover, but there is a summary for it.
Author: Jay Kristoff (Yes, Jay is writing a vampire novel!)
Publication Date: September 16, 2021
Summary from Goodreads:
Twenty-four years have passed since the last sunrise, and for almost three decades, the creatures of the night have walked the day without fear. Once, humanity fought bravely against the coldblood legions, but now, we exist only in a few scattered settlements—tiny sparks of light in a growing sea of darkness.
Gabriel de León is the last of the Silversaints, a holy order dedicated to defending realm and church, now utterly destroyed. Imprisoned for the murder of the vampiric king, Gabriel is charged with telling the story of his life.
His tale spans years, from his youth in the monastery of San Michon, to the forbidden love that spelled his undoing, and the betrayal that saw his order annihilated. Most importantly, Gabriel will tell the story of the Grail—the legendary cup prophesied to bring an end to the eternal night, whose location is known to a single person: A smart-mouthed teenage urchin named Dior.
Their journey with a band of unlikely allies would see Dior and Gabriel forge an unbreakable bond, and set the broken paragon on a road to redemption.
But now, the Grail is shattered. And with the cup of the Redeemer destroyed and the last Silversaint awaiting execution, what can bring an end to this undying empire?
Are you as excited as I am? It will be a long wait, but one that I am sure will be worth it!
