Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about but haven’t yet read. Most of the time they’re books that have yet to be released, but not always. It’s based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme, which was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

This week my Can’t-Wait-For is Silver Under Nightfall by Rin Chupeco!

Full of court intrigue, queer romance, and terrifying monsters—this gothic epic fantasy will appeal to fans of Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree and the adult animated series Castlevania.

Remy Pendergast is many things: the only son of the Duke of Valenbonne (though his father might wish otherwise), an elite bounty hunter of rogue vampires, and an outcast among his fellow Reapers. His mother was the subject of gossip even before she eloped with a vampire, giving rise to the rumors that Remy is half-vampire himself. Though the kingdom of Aluria barely tolerates him, Remy’s father has been shaping him into a weapon to fight for the kingdom at any cost.

When a terrifying new breed of vampire is sighted outside of the city, Remy prepares to investigate alone. But then he encounters the shockingly warmhearted vampire heiress Xiaodan Song and her infuriatingly arrogant fiancé, vampire lord Zidan Malekh, who may hold the key to defeating the creatures—though he knows associating with them won’t do his reputation any favors. When he’s offered a spot alongside them to find the truth about the mutating virus Rot that’s plaguing the kingdom, Remy faces a choice.

It’s one he’s certain he’ll regret.

But as the three face dangerous hardships during their journey, Remy develops fond and complicated feelings for the couple. He begins to question what he holds true about vampires, as well as the story behind his own family legacy. As the Rot continues to spread across the kingdom, Remy must decide where his loyalties lie: with his father and the kingdom he’s been trained all his life to defend or the vampires who might just be the death of him.

Excuse me?! EXCUSE ME?! EXCUSE ME?!?!?!

You’re telling me that Rin Chupeco – the author whose gorgeous prose and incredible worldbuilding consistently makes me swoon – is bestowing upon us a vampire hunter/vampires THROUPLE – and I had to find out for myself?!

INTERNET YOU HAVE FAILED ME

Only I guess not really, because I did find out in time to preorder this no-doubt-MASTERPIECE and hi, I’m pretty sure they heard my delighted shrieking on Mars!

WHAT EVEN

WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE THIS? Someone tell me so I can make sure it happens again and again!

I just. I CANNOT EVEN. Rin Chupeco. I’d be excited no matter who was writing this premise, but…RIN CHUPECO?! That’s…

I CANNOT EVEN.

What I can do is urge you all to preorder it immediately so the publisher and everyone else knows we want this and want more like it!!!
