Guess what I have for you guys today?!?!?  An excerpt from the much-anticipated new novel from Victoria Scott:

Add to Goodreads
Title:  The Collector
Author:  Victoria Scott
Series:  Dante Walker, book #1
Publisher:  Entangled Teen
Publication Date:  March 12, 2013

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Stealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.

Eeeek!  We can all thank each other for this wonderful surprise today, since it's because the book reached 4000 adds on Goodreads that the author and publisher are sharing this little gem with us.  So, way to go, guys!  =D

What do you think of the excerpt?!?  I am hard-core lusting after this book.  I saw on GR that the release date has been pushed back to April 2nd, though...that can't be right, can it?  They wouldn't make us wait any longer, would they?  The torture is almost unbearable as it is!!!  I can't wait to meet this bad boy and add him to my list of favorites!

All right, let's all pick ourselves up off the floor and get back to our regularly scheduled program.  :0)


  1. Sometimes I'm turned off but really arrogant guys but I really like the sound of this one. Maybe because of "Nerd Alert chick" - that just sounds awesome.

    1. Me, too, but I do appreciate when the bad boy is balanced with a nerdy girl. :)

  2. Nice excerpt! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy :)

  3. Sounds really good! I feel like I have seen the cover before.

    1. You've probably seen it here at least ten times now. I'm really excited for this, the author is super nice.

  4. Oh yes I have had my eye on this one as well!

  5. He's trying to figure out how to corrupt her. lol Can't wait! :)

    1. I know! Kind of reminds me of Personal Demons. Have you read that series?

  6. Great excerpt. This book looks nice. Can wait to read it. :)
