Waiting on Wednesday: After Midnight

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


My selection for this week is:



After Midnight (The Youngbloods,#1) by Lynn Viehl
Publication Date: May 8th 2011
Publisher: Flux



Summary from Goodreads:
A Suspenseful New Series Featuring Vampires and Forbidden Love
Sophomore Catlyn Youngblood is used to the nomadic existence she and her two older brothers have shared since the death of their parents. When they settle down for good in the sleepy backwoods town of Lost Lake, Florida, Cat thinks they might finally fit in. Instead, they're shunned by the locals.
While riding her horse late one night, Cat meets an enigmatic and handsome boy named Jesse Raven. Even more strange than her overpowering attraction to him is Jesse's apparent aversion to the sun. As their attraction intensifies, long-kept secrets come to light. Cat learns that the Ravens are a centuries-old vampire clan . . . and worse still, that she and her brothers are descendents of Abraham Van Helsing, the world-famous vampire hunter. Mortal enemies by blood, the two families do all they can to keep them apart. But Cat and Jesse will risk everything to be together—including death.
 
What i think:  

When i first read the premise,the story of After Midnight really reminded me a bit of Twilight.Girl moves to another town and there she meets with a mysterious boy who's not what he seems to be and feel attracted to him.It does sound similar!But what did it for me is that Lynn Viehl woves the Van Helsing myth into her story as well as gives a Romeo and Juliet feeling to the romantc element and now i'm really curious to see what the outcome will be!
