Waiting on Wednesday: The Vampire Stalker

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. The idea behind this meme is to highlight up and coming releases that we just can't wait to read.

This week's choice is The Vampire Stalker by Allison van Diepen. Not entirely sure how I feel about the cover yet, but I do love the premise behind this one. 

Quite a long wait for this one as it is only set to be released June 2011, but in the meantime, here's a brief synopsis about the book.



The Vampire Stalker by Allison van Diepen
What if the characters in a vampire novel left their world--and came into yours?

Amy is in love with someone who doesn't exist: Alexander Banks, the dashing hero in a popular series of vampire novels.

Then one night, Amy meets a boy who bears an eerie resemblance to Alexander.

In fact, he IS Alexander, who has escaped from the pages of the book and is in hot pursuit of a wicked vampire named Vigo.


Together, Amy and Alexander set out to track Vigo and learn how and why Alexander crossed over.

But when she and Alexander begin to fall for each other, Amy wonders if she even wants him to ever return to the realm of fiction.


What's on your WoW list this week? Feel free to share below.

A character who escapes from a book, how cool would that be? I am now officially waiting on this one too. Great pick!

Interesting pick. Sounds a little like fanfic though. Then again, I wasn't convinced with the Inkworld trilogy, with it's characters escaping books, but it turned out great.

Oh this sounds weird and spooky! I wonder what Amy thinks of there being a vampire already in her world that she didn't know about before she made one come out of a book she loved. It boggles the mind!
