is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

Today my Waiting On Wednesday post is about the German edition of Empire of the Vampire. I loved the author´s Nevernight Chronicles and after listening to the audiobook sample I recently bought the original audiobook of Empire of the Vampire. Doesn´t keep me from wanting this German edition too. I have no clue what to expect, except for the fact that reading a Jay Kristoff book is never boring. And the vampire theme is one I love since the start of the Vampire Diaries and the books with Cat and Bones.

Das Reich Der Vampire

Das Reich Der Vampire #1

The sun set 27 years ago – and the armies of vampires have been on the rise ever since. Little by little they have expanded their eternal realm and challenged the people for the land until a carefree life is only possible in a few places. Small islands of light in a sea of eternal darkness. When the young Gabriel de León has to leave his home village, his path leads him to San Michon, to the Order of the Silver Guardians, a holy brotherhood that defends the kingdom and the Church against the onslaught of the beasts. Little does he know that he will become the order´s greatest legend – and the last hope of a dying world.
