Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that showcases upcoming releases that people are very much anticipating.

While I'm waiting on a lot of books, most of them don't have a cover or synopsis yet, and I'm totally blanking on what book I want now, that I haven't already waited on. But alas, I came up with something!

Title: Gates of Paradise
Author: Melissa de la Cruz
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publishing Date: January 15, 2013
Pages: 272

Schuyler Van Alen is running out of time. The Dark Prince of Hell is storming the Gates of Paradise, intent on winning the heavenly throne for good. This time he has his greatest angels by his side, Abbadon and Azrael, or as they are known in the coven, Jack and Mimi Force.
Will Bliss and the wolves she has recruited to join her win the battle for the vampires? Is Schuyler prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, the same one Michael was forced to make in Florence so long ago? Love and vengeance, duty and and loyalty, life and death, are all at odds in the gripping, heartbreaking finale of the Blue Bloods series.
I'm waiting on this book for a number reasons. 1. Because it's the last book in the series--I remember when I read the first book, Blue Bloods, and it's crazy that it's over. 2. This will hopefully motivate me to read the most recent book in the series, Lost in Time, which I've started twice, but haven't finished. 3. I'm ready for this series to be over. 

Now, I don't say that a lot, if ever. But I'm so done with this series. I feel like it's changed so much from the first novel, that the writing has become too serious, the story too historical and lackluster. I hate to say that, because I used to love this series. But it's gone on for too long, and it's time for it to come to an end, for the Blue Bloods to rest.

What are YOU waiting on this week? Tell me in the comments!


  1. I agree. I've been over this series for a while. It just got a little to strange for me, and I like strange!

  2. I have always wanted to read the blue bloods series. I better get to reading it!
