Bite's tale, Book and a Chat
When Twilight first came out YA readers divided themselves into factions with “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” each being a heartthrob for YA readers. Veronica Blade however might just have found the next YA hunk, in the form of “Haydn Anders” in her debut YA novel “Something Witchy This Way Comes.”
Though “Something Witchy This Way Comes” is Veronica’s debut novel, it’s by no means the first one she has written, in fact it was her 5th, and as we found out during the show some of those previous creations, might well be hitting the book shelves next year.
About “Something Witchy This Way Comes”:
Brainiac Tessa McClean’s newly discovered magical powers give her an escape from her self-absorbed parents. But the thrill of being a witch fades when she learns of a rival coven and begins to suspect her own coven’s motives. Evidence tells Tessa to trust one side, but instinct drives her toward the other. When the school’s scrumptious delinquent, Hayden Anders, offers Tessa self-defense lessons in exchange for tutoring, his timing couldn’t be better.
Although hanging out with him is a necessary evil in Tessa’s fight to stay alive, resisting a bad-boy she secretly yearns for might be more than she can manage. Together, Tessa and Hayden work to unravel the mysteries behind the two covens to discover why they’ll stop at nothing to lure Tessa to their side. She must form an alliance with one of the covens before it’s too late. But the wrong decision could cost Tessa the lives of all who she holds dear — including Hayden…
The book is one of those great YA novels that appeals to people of all ages, the characters have you cheering for them, the dialogue and emotions are real and raw.
Something Witchy This Way Comes is full of paranormal twists and turns, self-discoveries, courage, loyalty, trust and surprises. As one reviewer put it…
“What I loved about this book was that it dove straight into my emotions. When she and Hayden had a steamy scene, I felt it too. When she was getting into trouble, I was biting my nails. When she discovered truths, I gasped and even cried. It was a great emotional roller coaster...” - booknookclub.blogspot.com
But this is not the end, as we heard there are many new offerings scheduled from Veronica.
She has A Bite’s Tale: A Furry Fable coming out later this month. It’s a novella with a Cinderella spin, but with vampires and werewolves.
In December, there is the prequel to her shape shifter series, a novella called Thrown to the Wolves. To be followed by the first book in that shape shifter series, "My Wolf’s Bane" releasing in January 2012.
And then of course there is definitely more to hear from Tessa and Haydn.
