Wating on Wednesday (23)

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

  Stray (Shifters #1) by Rachel Vincent
Published:  May 26th 2007
Mira Books






Synopsis(from Goodreads):
I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.

Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.

I'd been warned about Strays--werecats without a Pride--constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.

This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back...for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I'm no meek kitty. I'll take on whatever--and whoever--I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays--'cause I got claws, and I'm not afraid to use them....
It's been a long time since this one has been released but I haven't had the chance to get my hands on it. And oh, how I want to. The book sounds absolutely amazing and I'm a big fan of shifters in general so I want it, and I want it bad!

Touched (Sense Thieves #1) by Corrine Jackson
Expected Publication: November 27th 2012
Kensington Teen  


Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll becoming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

This is Book One in the Touched trilogy.
I've  seen the book around and I really like the sound of it. It has a potential to be a very good book and I would love to give it a try when it comes out. I'm really excited about it.

  2. This sounds very interesting. I love books with characters who have healing powers and this shows serious promise. Great choice.

    As for Stray, I've wanted to read it for ages, too, and haven't gotten to it. Really gotta fix that.

    1. I THINK I started the Mercy Thompson series but I definitely didn't finish it. And it was probably because I was distracted by something else at the time. I'll have to give it a try again. Thanks for visiting!
