9780763654795: Blessed (Tantalize)

With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts of Tantalize and Eternal in a delicious dark fantasy her fans will devour.

(Ages 14 & Up)


"You'll try to fight it. But you'll only be fighting your true self. It's done. It's destined. In time, you'll come to accept it." He pulled back his sleeve to reveal two dress watches. "In time, you'll come to me."

Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life -- or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents' restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature -- and a flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it's too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie's soul?

About the Author:

Cynthia Leitich Smith is the acclaimed and best-selling author of Tantalize, Eternal, and several other books for young readers. About Blessed, she says, "Who hasn't felt like their life is over? Like they're all alone, facing an infernal storm? That's when a little faith can save you, when you're fighting the hardest to believe in yourself." A member of the faculty at the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA program in writing for children and young adults, she lives in Austin, Texas.

Review:

A good read for those who hunger for the dark side, with all the trappings of a YA vampire novel.
—School Library Journal

Smith's writing style is sometimes dramatic, often humorous, and always energetic�A satisfying blend of excitement and intrigue.
—VOYA

Wild and ultimately fascinating, if at times grisly, alternate universe
—Kirkus Reviews

A hearty meal for the thinking vampire reader
—Horn Book

Sure, the vampires, werewolves, and angels provide the lure, but Smiths obvious affection for her characters makes this more than the typical cynical genre exercise.
—Booklist

Readers will particularly enjoy the relief from the scary omnipotence of Brad during the action at Sanguini's, chock-full of foodie treats and in-jokes for vampire and literature fans� And Quincie's very teenage interpretation of "Dracula," begun as a make-up assignment for her English teacher at fictional Waterloo High, is a skeptic hoot.
—Austin-American Statesman

As in the previous installments of this smart, sexy trilogy, Cynthia Leitich Smith doses every page with winking pop-culture references and groan-worthy one-liners. In this final volume, her homage to Stoker's classic novel is most apparent, as she uses the book's characters for inspiration, its plot for structure and its themes for a rich background that will lead many readers to (re)discover the original Dracula even as they enjoy this darkly humorous send-up.
