Ooooh! Sparkly!

Just when I thought I was done with vampires, Julie Kagawa steps up to the plate. And while her new book is about vampires, I'm assuming the only sparkling in the book will be excellent writing.

Am I the only one who sees HUGE potential here?

Cover = Underworld (face) + True Blood (tears) + Twilight (eyes)
The premise:
In a future world, vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die…or become one of the monsters.

Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.

Not a new story, but again, it's Julie Kawaga. I am officially counting down to April 24, 2012, which feels good. It's been a long time since I've been excited for a YA title... not to mention anything with a vampire protagonist.
