Looking Forward To...(69)

There are so many amazing books already on the shelves and new ones coming out.

For a list of books yet to be released I'm looking to get, you can also look on my right Sidebar at the ever growing list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down. Of course there are tones of other new books to come out that are amazing as well, but these ones are part of series I have already started or for one reason or another caught my eye (and haven't seen much on other blogs yet). But I will highlight one here each week.

(mentioned in order of Release Date then Alphabetical if there are more than one book coming out on the same date.)

Next Book Is...

All Wounds
Stranger Things #1
By:  Dina James
Due Out:  October 11, 2011

This is a new YA read coming out by a new author.  And I love the sounds of this world with a healer.  Sounds dangerous and exciting.  I like the sounds of the Ethereal.  This side of the line has drawn my attention.  And I can't wait to read this one.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Rebecca MacDonnell was brought up to believe she was just a regular girl with regular problems who would have a regular life. Her expectations were drastically altered one night when the secret her aging grandmother kept from her showed up – literally – on her doorstep.

Her classmate Ryan is near-fatally wounded by hellhounds, and is brought to her for help by his vampire friend, Sydney. Rebecca quickly learns that she is anything but "regular." She's a Stranger, descended from the most prominent line of Ethereal Healers ever known. Now Rebecca understands why she's always felt – and was treated like – she didn't belong, and why she's always wanted to be a doctor. Now instead of human medical school, she'll train to be a healer of a different sort.

Provided, of course, she lives long enough for her unique ability to manifest entirely, and then through the event itself.

A war between various ethereal factions is brewing, and Healers are a valuable commodity to any side. Those who wish to harness Rebecca’s manifesting healing powers for their own purposes must get to her before her seventeenth birthday, and staying alive until then is proving to be a lot harder than the algebra Rebecca's trying to get a good grade in and taking care of her grandmother combined.

Only Ryan, Syd and a rogue werewolf called Billy stand between Rebecca and the demons determined to make her serve them, and Rebecca's protectors have problems of their own to deal with. The fact that Rebecca has been kept completely ignorant of her heritage and talents and is frightened by them only makes things that much harder. If all that weren't enough, Rebecca finds herself attracted to both Syd, the blond Master vampire, and Ryan, the dark-haired bad boy she's trying to keep alive.

Then there's her homework.
