Waiting On Wednesday (8)

"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 Wicked Game" by Michelle Zink

This book is to be released on November 14th, 2013. It is a stand-alone book.

Claire Kincaid's family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid's run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powers, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn't believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can't wait to escape New Orleans--and voodoo--when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild's powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there's more to voodoo--and the families that make up the Guild--than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy--and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

Secret societies? Voodoo? Romeo and Juliet type love story? Yes, yes, and more yes, please. Seeing as this is a stand-alone (which I am in dire need with all the series I am currently juggling), I would love to get my hands on this and see if it measures up to the amazing synopsis that Goodreads provided and the beautiful cover that was created for it. I have heard numerous good things about Zink as a writer and I do believe she will become another favorite of mine. I only hope that I may be able to get my hands on an ARC because November seems SO. FAR. AWAY!

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
