Book Watch: Balthazar
Balthazar by Claudia Gray will be released in the U.S. on March 6, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats.
Published by HarperTeen, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 384 pages.
Balthazar is a spinoff book in the Evernight series.
There was no question that I’d be spotlighting Balthazar this week. Although I have an ARC I received through a trade and could potentially read it before release, Balthazar is still the book releasing the week of March 6th that I’m most anxious for.
I was devastated when I learned the Evernight series was coming to an end. So devastated, in fact, that Afterlife met the same fate as nearly all series ending books do for me – it remains unread. I actually read the first fifty or so pages, had to set it aside for review books but never found the strength to pick it back up.
But now that there’s this other book in the series, even though it is a spinoff, I am absolutely over the moon. Not only does its existence mean that will I be able to read Afterlife, but I love Balthazar and can’t wait to learn more about him.
According to the description Balthazar may find love, which makes me so unbelievably happy. He was one of my favorite characters and while I never wanted anything to happen between him and Bianca, I couldn’t be happier that he won’t be alone.
This spinoff sounds absolutely thrilling – a love story, a girl with psychic powers and a battle with an evil vampire – and if it truly is a story of “forbidden love and dark suspense” then there is no way I won’t fall in love with this book.
And while there are all sorts of amazing books releasing the week of the 6th, I definitely think Balthazar is the perfect book to watch this week.
