It's about a servant girl named Tess in 1912, who wants to escape from the house where she works, and most particularly the lecherous young lord of the manor. But that's not her biggest problem. While on a voyage to America, where she plans to escape and start a new life, she meets Alec, who's ruggedly handsome, fabulously wealthy, intelligent and yet so clearly troubled that she'd rather not fall for him, but she does. That also is not her biggest problem. Alec, it turns out, is a werewolf ... one cursed to change every night, unless and until he surrenders his independence and joins the Brotherhood, a pack of violently misogynistic werewolves who have been tracking him for months. You'd think that would be their biggest problem, wouldn't you?
But no. Their biggest problem -- though they don't know it yet -- is that they're aboard the RMS Titanic.
I am so excited about this book! The cover is just gorgeous! I love the whole idea of werewolves on the Titanic, it's got a unique and rememberable ring to it. I also can't wait for Claudia's next book, Balthazar, which continues from her Evernight series, focusing on the character, Balthazar.
Fateful is released mid September 2011
Balthazar is released early 2012
Are you guys as excited as I am?
