New WoW

I have a few books I’m waiting on, but one that I did not mention in yesterday’s post, Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR is the latest book in the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King. I’m a huge fan of this series and can’t wait for the final installment to be published in April. I love the magical world, the characters, and the setting, a small Virginia town, much like the one I grew up in. Can’t wait!

New to me authors and series:

  • Witch and Wizard by James Patterson. My sister-in-law recommended this book to me and I still need to get my hands on a copy.
  • The Girl with All the Gifts by  M.R. Carey. Another sister-in-law recommendation

Waiting on Wednesday: Iced by Karen Marie Moning

Normally I don’t participate in the Book Blogger Memes, but I do like the Waiting on Wednesday one where I eagerly salivate over upcoming releases, so I’ve decided to participate this week with a book that I’m looking forward to. “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that Book Bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

I’ve been going through my old posts to update them and make them look prettier and I stumbled upon my review of Shadowfever (the last book in the original series). The Fever Series by Karen Mari Moning is by far one of my all time favorite series. I love the character development and growth of the main character Mac and I love the world Moning created. Now, Moning has a new, hotly anticipated, upcoming series based on one of the original characters in the Fever Series as a spin-off. I can’t wait to read Iced: A Dani O’Malley Novel due out October 30, 2012!!! 

Synopsis from Good Reads:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning comes the first book in her hotly anticipated new urban paranormal trilogy, set in the world of her blockbuster Fever series.

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.
