"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
This week I'm waiting on a couple of angel books!
A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
Publication date: March 20, 2012
Even angels make mistakes in this page-turning epic romance...
When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world's past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.
Why I want it: I find it intriguing that her childhood friend (who is handsome of course) wants to destroy her. It makes me wonder about the story behind Zink's angels. And I like how the main character is the angel, and she makes mistakes (or so it sounds). I'm interested in how history is weaved into this story as well.
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Publication date: May 1, 2012
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.
Anna, a tender-hearted southern girl, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it's time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns?
Why I want it: Angels who depend on being bad influences. "The boy your daddy warned you about." And a road trip! I'm really interested to see how a road trip factors into this story. And how Anna has a choice between good and evil. I love when the main character has to really evolve and make a life-altering decision.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
