“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spinewhere bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting both an upcoming book AND/OR video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW we’re talking fae and human mages, underground cities, and eyes. Check out what’s on my eclectic wish list!
This Week’s Top Picks:
Title: Iron Kin: A Novel of the Half-Light City Author: M.J. Scott ISBN-13: 9780451465054 Publisher: Roc Publication date: 4/2/2013 Pages: 352 Pre-Order: Purchase
Imagine a city divided. Fae and human mages on one side, vampire Blood Lords and shape-shifting Beast Kind on the other. Between these supernatural forces stands a peace treaty that threatens to shatter at the slightest provocation….
I was raised to do the right thing. But to my family that means staying safe behind the walls of human society. To be a respectable metalmage and never put myself at risk. But the treaty is faltering. And if it fails, nothing is safe. To help save the city and everyone I care about, I will use whatever means I can to ensure the negotiations to renew the treaty are successful—even if that means forging an alliance with a man who is the very opposite of the right thing….
Fen is trouble. Wild. He would rather bind himself in iron and drink himself into oblivion than learn to master the visions that come to him. Those visions might just hold the key to peace, and it seems that my power might hold the key to his control—if I can keep it around him….
Fae mages…heck yeah! Vampire Blood Lords and Shape-shifting Beasts…double HECK Yeah! This book sound so awesome I’d smack somebody for a copy! (any volunteers??????)
Title: Fade to Black(Rojan Dizon #1) Author: Francis Knight ISBN-13: 9780316217682 Publisher: Orbit Publication date: 2/26/2013 Pages: 367 Pre-Order: Purchase
It’s a city built upwards, not across—where streets are built upon streets, buildings upon buildings. A city that the Ministry rules from the sunlit summit, and where the forsaken lurk in the darkness of Under.
Rojan Dizon doesn’t mind staying in the shadows, because he’s got things to hide. Things like being a pain-mage, with the forbidden power to draw magic from pain. But he can’t hide forever.
Because when Rojan stumbles upon the secrets lurking in the depths of the Pit, the fate of Mahala will depend on him using his magic. And unlucky for Rojan—this is going to hurt.
Maybe I’m on a roll with this mage theme, but I’d love to get my hands on this novel. It sounds akin to a fiery a$$-kicking Dystopian with a mix of fantasy thrown in. Whatever it is…I want it. NEED IT!!!!
Title: Indelible (The Twixt #1) Author: Dawn Metcalf ISBN-13: 9780373210732 Publisher: Harlequin Publication date: 7/30/2013 Pages: 304 Pre-Order: Purchase
Some things are permanent.
And they cannot be changed back.
Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.
Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future…and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.
Somewhere between reality and myth lies…
Someone, please tell me what the heck this book is about? For the simple fact that I have NO EARTHLY idea of what to expect, I want it. I could care less if there is a romance, just give me death, adventure, mystery and a captivating story! Take me to the TWIXT!
So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
