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.

Former Agent of death Madeline Black may have been stripped of her wings—but she hasn’t lost her purpose…

When Maddy finally killed her father, Azazel, she thought his depraved experiment died with him. But now Chicago has been infested with vampires immune to the effects of the sun, and the bloodbath is worse than she could have ever imagined. While the Agency refuses to interfere with other supernatural courts, Maddy is determined to do everything within her power to save her city—wings or no wings.

But when the leader of the vampires requests that she turn herself in or risk more deaths, Maddy becomes a target for the very people she’s trying to save. Left with no other choice, she turns to Lucifer, the one creature who has the power to help her. But her grandfather’s aid has always come at a price…

So very hard not to miss those first words in bold! I still haven't read Black Lament so I am spoiled with this description yet I only have myself to blame for not read it sooner. I am going to try bumping it up in my TBR pile. Possibly soon!

TITLE: Black City
AUTHOR: Christina Henry

GENRE: Urban Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: February 26, 2012


  1. The font on that cover immediately reminded me of "Mystic City" by Theo Lawrence. It sounds interesting, though I'm trying to stay away from the whole vampire thing lately. Hope you enjoy it once you get a chance to read it!

    Thank you for always stopping by my WoW Jessica!

    Daphne @ Reading Until Dawn

  26. Yes, you really do need to read Black Lament soon. ;-) There are a few surprises in that book that didn't end up in the blurb for Black City.

    I like how this was a departure from the other covers in the series -- a nod to the change in her status.

  27. This sounds great! I hope you enjoy it once it's out!
