Waiting on Wednesday 8/17

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: A Temptation of Angels
Author: Michelle Zink
Publisher: Dial BYR
Publish Date: March 20, 2012
Genre: YA, Paranormalm HistFic
Pages: TBA

When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility.

Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
First off, I'm a huge fan of Michelle Zink. She's an incredible author. Second of all, seriously? Look at that cover for A Temptation of Angels. I'm in lust with how dark and haunting it is. Plus, I really think I could love this take on angels. It sounds twisty and dark with a touch of something that's not quite right or good. Honestly, this one has all the makings for an incredible book, and I can't freaking wait to read it. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  13. So, at first I was going to say, no, all the angel books I've read haven't been good, but then I realized Michelle Zink is the author *palms forehead* I LOVE Michelle Zink! And that cover really is to die for. I love the cloak. Great pick, Melissa. You really always do find the best covers.
