Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


Riss Holloway has taken a leave of absence from her mortal job as Boston’s Chief Magical Investigator to focus on an unsettling friction brewing in the Sisterhood—only to be ushered into a tumultuous civil war drawing every other god and goddess into the chaos as well.



Isn't this cover wicked awesome?! Kasey is a local author of mine that I really enjoy reading! I ventured into our deeply scary and crazy streets of downtown to just to get to her signing last year! Even saw her at RT this year as well and hung out the last night!


TITLE: Black-Hearted Betrayal
AUTHOR: Kasey MacKenzie
PUBLISHER:
Ace
GENRE:
Urban Fantasy
RELEASE DATE:
June 26, 2012



Paranormal romance fans who are looking to up the ante will be drawn to this tale of horror, fantasy, and romance. For Mab Prowd, the practice of blood magic is as natural as breathing. It's all she's ever known. Growing up on an isolated farm in Kansas with other practitioners may have kept her from making friends her own age, but it has also given her a sense of purpose—she's connected to the land and protective of the magic. And she is able to practice it proudly and happily out in the open with only the crows as her companions. Mab will do anything to keep the ancient practice alive and guard its secrets. But one morning while she is working out a particularly tricky spell she encounters Will, a local boy who is trying to exorcise some mundane personal demons. He experiences Mab's magic in a way his mind cannot comprehend and is all too happy to end their chance meeting. But secrets that were kept from Mab by the earlier generations of blood magicians have come home to roost. And she and Will are drawn back together, time again by this dangerous force looking to break free from the earth and reclaim its own dark power.



This one sounds awesome too! I looved the first one and am awaiting on approval from the publisher via Netgalley for an e-ARC! Hoping to get a yes soon, until then I am waiting waiting waiting!

  14. Hey! I saw your button on Cecilia and sandra's blog! I love it, as I love coffee and books! I think you should also be desperately awaiting "shadow of Night" by Deborah Harkness. It's the follow up to "A Discovery of Witches." It's great!!! I'm a follower now.
