Waiting on Wednesday (22)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

  Luminosity (Raven Chronicles #1) by Stephanie Thomas
Expected publication:  November 13th 2012
Entangled Teen






Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Beatrice, whose Visions are clearer than those of the other Seers, trains to defend the Institution and the City from the Dreamcatchers. As the City prepares for an invasion, a Dreamcatcher named Echo tells Beatrice that war is imminent, and they must save each other in order to survive. Beatrice keeps this information from her best friend, Gabe, jeopardizing her allegiance to him and the Seers. Now, threatened by both the Seers and the Dreamcatchers, Beatrice must learn who she can trust, and make decisions that may cause her to lose Gabe or Echo forever.
I saw this one with a reviews or an interview and I was reminded of it. I already had it on my to-read list and I really want to give it a try when it comes out.

Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning
 Publication: March 21st 2013
Dutton Juvenile





Synopsis(from Goodreads):
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….
A few weeks ago I featured Iced in my WOW post and I got all these comments about how much everyone LOVED the Fever series. Imagine my surprise when I found out that there was a whole other series and that Iced is based on that world. So here I am, waiting for this one to come to my shelf... It's been a long time since the book came out but I'm not sure if it's out in my country so I'll have to wait a while to read it. Feel free to leave your reviews of the book, if you have reviewed it, and I'll stop by and see what you thought!

  1. I've heard about Raven Chronicles and that book sounds really interesting. I hope it'll be good. Another thing is that I still haven't read any book by Karen Moning. I've heard great things about her books. Great picks!

    Here is my WOW

  7. Great choices, I'm so excited for Luminosity too! Fever is among my favorite series of all time, the first book is a bit tough but it sets it up for a mind blowing end! There's also her Highlander series that's more fluffy self satisfying romance, but some characters from her Highlander series make an appearance in the Fever series (Moning likes to cross over a lot). But it's so worth it to read her stuff!

    1. Okay, I hadn't even heard of the Highlander series. Which should I read first. I love to read cross overs so I'm all for them but I want to start from the beginning!
      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi, Maria!
      I'm glad you liked my picks and I hope you enjoy Luminosity when it comes out. I hadn't heard of Darkfever too, until I decided to feature Iced on my WOW and now as it turns out there is another series connected to the Fever series... I'll have to do a proper research on these books before I start...
      Thanks for visiting!
