Waiting on Wednesday #14 Kiss of Night by Debbie Viguie

Waiting on Wednesday is  a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 
Kiss of Night
Author: Debbie Viguie
Release Date: October 7th 2011
Goodreads:Centuries ago, Raphael was a blasphemous knight who fought in the Crusades purely for his own mercenary benefit, and to satisfy his taste for killing. Now, condemned for his evil passions and hypocrisy, he wanders the earth a vampire, cursed with first-hand knowledge of the supernatural world he once denied existed. The powerful relic he still possesses from his days as a Crusader has been stolen by a rival vampire who has recruited an army of soulless underlings to aid him in spreading evil. At the time he learns this, Raphael has been hunting this vampire for nearly a century, and it seems the final battle is destined to take place in Prague.
For help in this quest, Raphael must enlist the aid of two humans, David and Susan, who suddenly find themselves immersed in a world they never imagined, entangled with supernatural forces they can't control. Susan, in particular, finds herself conflicted as she struggles with her inexplicable attraction to Raphael. In the end, both Susan and Raphael will be called upon to exercise courage and faith, and in the process, the question What would happen if a vampire truly accepted God? is answered.

Why I want it: I've not really come across many books featuring vampires  and religion, so it this seems like it will be an interesting take on vampires. I can't really say much for the cover, but the summary sounds interesting. 

What are YOU waiting on this week?


  1. A great choice! the guy on the cover reminds me of Johnny Depp.

    My WoW,

    Have a nice week :)

  2. Sounds exciting. I love reading about the Crusades and am curious to find out more about Raphael and why Susan is attracted to him since he doesn't sound like a very nice Vamp. Great pick!

  3. WOW!! That sounds great!!!!!! I would totally read that!

    Paranormal Wastelands' WoW

  4. Sounds exciting, great cover.

  5. I have seen this one around recently! In my head i refer to it as the Johnny Depp cover book, the guy looks sooo much like him! But the book looks good, definitely one to add to the TBR!

  6. This book sounds good.And i loved your header image of the blog

  7. I've seen this one around a bit, and like you, I haven't seen a book that combines vampires and religion together in as extreme a form as this. Sounds interesting though, especially since it also promises a bit of historical fiction with the Crusade deal. And I agree with what you said about the cover; it doesn't interest me quite as much as the summary. Nice choice :).

  8. I'm reading this one right now actually :)


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
