Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!


Here's my pick this week:


Dark Star by Bethany Frenette
Release Date: October 23rd, 2012

Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it's hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she's lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human--something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile. 

Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn't fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers--livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin.
To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person's memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers' next move. But Leon, her mother's bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won't let Audrey out of his sight.
When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything--and everyone--she loves.
So, this is released today but in my defense, since I write my posts beforehand I was still anticipating when I wrote it ;)  Dark Star almost comes off like a superhero book at first glance but the genre is a mix of fantasy, paranormal & dystopian...with demons thrown in the mix!  I can't wait to see how everything will mesh together!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?  Link me up below & don't forget to mention if you're a new follower so I can follow back ;)

  10. Okay so I've seen this around, and I luurrvvvee the cover. But something about the blurb makes me wary - kind of like ... I think "Will it really be as awesome as it's described?" You know like when they make a movie trailer out of all the best bits, and you're really pumped to go see it, and then when you DO watch it, you realise it's really just those five epic scenes with a lot of crap in between? Like that.

    So I'm not 100% sure if I want to try it! Thanks for stopping by dear :-)
