Waiting On Wednesday (64)


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.

Son of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon 

This book is to be released September 2nd, 2014. It is the sixth book in the Hellchaser series and the twenty-third book in the Dark-Hunter Universe series.

It's not easy being life's own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that's okay. That which doesn't kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group trying to get their own cable show as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they're even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when her group accidentally releases something truly evil into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement.

From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn't quite right. And it's not just because she can't even begin to pronounce his last name: Maboddimun. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his apparent age...

Centuries ago, Cadegan sold his soul for vengeance against the betrayer who cursed him. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him as much as it irritates and frustrates him. Something he can't seem to fight, and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him his soul.

He knows he has to stay away from her, but the evil her friends unleashed is hellbent on consuming her soul. Something he cannot allow. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

I have just started to dip my toe into the world that is the Dark-Hunter Universe and I am thoroughly intrigued. I am anxious to collect the series in it's entirety and then just go on a series long book binge. Yes, that sounds like fun, doesn't it? I am intrigued by the whole soul selling/forced to be good aspect that this book seems to be able. I can't wait to get through the series and finally dive into this one!

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
