Waiting on Wednesday: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead is one of those releases I am anticipating and dreading. Anticipating because the series is so awesome and dreading because it's the last book in this fabulous series. This is my favorite YA series.

The release date is December 7 but I haven't been able to find a blurb, and she said she probably won't be able to release the first chapter (which she normally releases a month ahead of the book) until Thanksgiving week.

She did put two videos with teasers up on her blog last week:

Loyal. Outsider. Murderer? Who killed the Queen?
(about Christian apparently)

and a quote from the book:
"...and there isn't much I wouldn't do for you. The stupider the better."

She has planned a spinoff series with different characters as the main focus, here's what she has to say:

Last Sacrifice will be the last book about Rose, but it'll be followed by a spin-off series still set in the Vampire Academy world. Side characters we know from the current series will now be our main characters, and there'll be a whole new storyline (not the last one told from a different perspective). So far, there is no exact release date, but you can expect it near late summer/early fall of 2011.
