Waiting on Wednesday: Immortal Beloved (Update)


In November I spotlighted Immortal Beloved as my Waiting on Wednesday. Back then the book had no cover. Today I bring you, the cover, the blurb and a link to read an excerpt from Chapter 2.
I cannot wait for this book. I'm going to have to order it in from the US. There is no date scheduled at the moment for a UK release. Please publishers! Option the UK rights to this book now!

Author: Cate Tiernan
Released: Autumn 2010, Little Brown US

Immortal Beloved: Summary from Cate's blog:

New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there’s no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends . . . when you’re immortal. But this time is different: Nastasya knows that this new town must hold her salvation—or her death.



Nastasya was born into darkness, and has embraced it her whole life. Four hundred years ago, a tragedy robbed her of her birthright, and she’s been living a lie ever since. Now, four centuries of exploring the depths and limits of dark power has left Nastasya feeling sickened unto death. If she continues down this road, she will end up as a very dark, twisted, evil thing—with unthinkable power. Or she can begin the long, painful road toward light, and reclaim the destiny that others tried to destroy.


They’re rare. You may have never met one, never sat next to one on a plane, never eaten in the same restaurant at the same time. But the Immortals are there. Have always been there. Will always be there. Moving among humans, playing out their own cursed fate. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with huge, sweeping implications for mankind. But no one will ever know. Except you.


Interested? Of course you are!
Visit Cate Tiernan's blog here and you can read the taster from Chapter 2. Go on, you know you want to!

Sounds fantastic. So when is the US release date?

Alyssa, I searched through Little Brown's site but I couldn't find any reference to Immortal Beloved. All it says on Cate's site is Fall 2010. If I hear anything, I'll certainly let you know.
