Waiting on Wednesday (116)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here are two wonderful books I'm waiting on this week...

by Jessica Shirvington
To be released: September 04, 2012

Summary from Goodreads:
"Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.

Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever.

The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed."

I really loved the first book in this series. It's a fun mix of angels and danger, but lots of lurve. Good stuff! I look forward to this second book, for sure.

Carnival of Souls
by Melissa Marr
To be released: September 04, 2012

Summary from Barnes and Noble:
"In a city of daimons, rigid class lines separate the powerful from the power-hungry. And at the heart of The City is the Carnival of Souls, where both murder and pleasure are offered up for sale. Once in a generation, the carnival hosts a deadly competition that allows every daimon a chance to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures—if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live.

All Mallory knows of The City is that her father—and every other witch there—fled it for a life in exile in the human world. Instead of a typical teenage life full of friends and maybe even a little romance, Mallory scans quiet streets for threats, hides herself away, and trains to be lethal. She knows it's only a matter of time until a daimon finds her and her father, so she readies herself for the inevitable. While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City knows of her. There are plans for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence and danger that is the Carnival of Souls."

I have read other books my Melissa Marr and loved them. So I can only imagine how wonderful this new series is going to be. I'll definitely be giving it a shot when it comes out!

What are you waiting on this week?
