AND HERE’S WHAT YOU MISSED AT BOOK TEENS…
Richelle Mead was here this past weekend, and it was awesome! She gave us a little insight into what’s going on in the world of The Glittering Court to help us prep for Midnight Jewel, but then she let the audience take over asking all the questions they could come up with about everything from Succubus Blues, to Soundless, to of course, Vampire Academy! I don’t know about everyone else, but I can’t wait for that Rose and Dimitri trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond now (spoiler alert: this isn’t really happening, but can’t you just see it in your head)!
If you missed the event, signed copies of Midnight Jewel can be ordered here!

It’s Zoey’s 18th birthmas and the Nerd Herd has been scattered across the country busily adulting for almost a year when Stark calls them back to Tulsa to surprise Z. But all is not well in T-town. Strange, dark signs are appearing — could it be possible Neferet is stirring? Not willing to chance disaster striking again, Zoey calls on her newly reunited friends to circle with her and add a layer of protection over Neferet’s grotto jail. Easy-peasy, right?
Wrong. Nothing at the House of Night is ever as it seems.
With rabid red vampyres closing in, Zoey and the Nerd Herd must come together again and battle evil. But a year is a long time. Have these old friends grown too far apart?
When the world fractures and allies become enemies, will darkness devour friendships or will light save those she’s loved?
