Waiting on Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release. This meme is always something incredibly difficult for me to take part in. Do I choose the book from the up-and-coming author that may not be as well know as I would like? Do I choose the book from the series I have completed that I am anxiously awaiting a continuance in? The answer is... both. It's my blog, if I wish to pick more than one "Waiting On" book, I can do so with a smile :) Let's get started with the book from the obscure author:

"Charm & Strange" by Stephanie Kuehn.

This book will be released June 11th, 2013. It is a stand-alone novel.

When you've been kept in the dark, it's impossible to see the forest for the trees. It's impossible to see anything, really. Not without bars...

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself.

He's part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. They guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost. 

He's part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that controls him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable. 

Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present.

Before the sun rises, he'll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the the most elemental of truths--that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.

If that doesn't tickle your fancy, let's try the book that I have been waiting what seems like an eternity on.

"Darkness Unmasked" by Keri Arthur.

This book will be released June 4th, 2013 and it is the 5th in the Dark Angels series (a spin-off of the Riley Jensen Guardian series).

Keri Arthur's explosive Dark Angel series is packed with everything you could want: a feisty heroine, witches, vampires, werewolves, demons, angels of death, suspense and a whole lot of sexy action.

The sexy, exciting, suspenseful adventures continue in New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur's Dark Angel series, starring Risa Jones, a half-Aedh/half-werewolf. She can speak to the souls of the dying and the dead, and can see Reapers, the collectors of souls.

Shortly after her fight on the astral plane, Risa receives a phone call from Madeline Hunter, the leader of the vampire council, ordering her to investigate the death of Hunter's closer friend and lover--Wolfgang Schmidt. His body has been discovered wrapped in a web-like substance and has been completely drained. As the body count continues to grow, Risa must summon her gifts to find the dark spirit before it strikes again.

Meanwhile, as the search for the keys that keep the gates of Hell closed grows more intense, Risa begins to unravel mysteries that will have startling consequences for her.
