{Waiting on Wednesday} 18: Falling to Ash by Karen Mahoney

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Falling to Ash by Karen Mahoney
You can't choose your family ...living or dead. 
Trapped between two very different worlds, newly made vampire Moth is struggling to find her place in either. Not only does she have to answer to her strict Irish-Catholic Dad, but her over-protective maker, Theo, is intent on making her the star attraction in his powerful Boston vampire clan. Moth will have to pull off the double-act of the century to please both of them... 
Adding to her problems is the dangerously attractive Jason Murdoch, a trainee vampire hunter who loves to play cat and mouse in his spare time (Jace = cat; Moth = mouse). But when the teenagers of Boston's wealthiest families start to disappear, it forces Moth and Jace into an uneasy truce. Will they be able to solve the mystery behind the disappearances - before someone winds up undead?
I am so excited to read this book as the cover is so very intriguing and there seems to be so much meaning in the visual and the blurb just sounds so fantastic! I cannot wait to pick up this book!

  4. ooh, this one sounds really good! I'm a little burnt out on vampire books, but there are a few I am VERY excited to read about, and it's nice to know that publishers still think the market for vampires isn't that saturated! The cover is gorgeous. Hauntingly gorgeous! :) great pick.
