Looking Forward To...(102)

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...


Soul Trade
Black London #5
By:  Caitlin Kittridge
Due Out:  August 28, 2012

I've enjoyed Pete and Jack since the first book.  This series is dark and gritty and full of the magical feel, and what I love.  The banter between Pete and Jack make it all the better for me.  They are not the usually lovey dovey couple, the bicker and tell each other the way it is - even if it is cruel.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The crow-mage Jack Winter returns—to crash a secret gathering of ghost hunters, soul stealers, and other uninvited guests, both dead and alive... 
Normally, Pete Caldecott stays far away from magical secret societies. But ever since her partner and boyfriend Jack Winter stopped a primordial demon from ripping into our world, every ghost, demon, and mage in London has been wide awake—and hungry.  And the magical society in question needs their help putting things right. 

It all begins with an invitation.  Five pale figures surround Pete in the cemetery to "cordially" invite her to a gathering of the Prometheus Club. Pete’s never heard of them, but Jack has--and he's not thrilled about it. Especially the part that says, "Attend or die." The Prometheans wouldn't come to London unless something big’s about to go down. So Pete and Jack decide to play it safe and make nice with the club--even if that means facing down an army of demons in the process.  But now that they've joined the group, they're about to discover that membership comes at a cost...and has apocalyptic consequences.
