If you read my blog, you know that I’m a big Melissa Marr fan. Her stories are intriguing, her characters are well-developed and her writing is lyrical. Plus, I definitely enjoyed all of her Wicked Lovely novels so I’m pretty darned excited to read another story set in this world. The cover’s really pretty, too. I love the purple and how the leaves are evocative of the other covers in this series.
The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that’s exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert’s isolation after decades of carrying winter’s curse inside her body. But her seclusion—and the freedom of the desert fey—are threatened by the Summer King’s newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself—and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is OVER.
Oh, teen drama. How I love to read about you. And Katie McGarry certainly can write teen angst like few others. Do we really have to wait until November for this one? I’ve heard around Twitter that there are some ARCs floating around already and, I’ll admit to a pang of jealousy over those who got it for review. I really want to read Isaiah’s story! Plus, LOVE the cover. I love the colors and how the title is placed and the way we’re looking down on the couple snuggling up tight in the back seat (ah, brings back memories!) (not the street racing. The backseat. Ahem.).
The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that’s who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers…and she’s just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can’t get him out of her mind.
Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.
But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they’ll go to save each other.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
