On My Wishlist #24

**Shameless Plug - Don't forget to check out my Sabina Kane Giveaway for a chance to win one of the books in the series!**

This is a meme from Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track! This week I'm having a feeling for the fae...

The Iron King (Iron Fey 1) - Julia Kagawa
Publisher: UK - MIRA books (January 2011)
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school...or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical fairy king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face...and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

This series has just been released in the UK and I'm looking forward to catching up on it soon - there have been a lot of good reviews plus the Fae elements make it a nice change from the Vampire teenagers! :)

Spiral Hunt (Evie Scelan 1) - Magaret Ronald
Publisher: Eos (February 2009)
Some people have the Sight. Genevieve Scelan has the Scent. They call her "Hound," and with her unique supernatural sense Evie can track nearly anything—lost keys, vanished family heirlooms . . . even missing people. And though she knows to stay out of the magical undercurrent that runs beneath Boston's historic streets, a midnight phone call from a long-vanished lover will destroy the careful boundaries she has drawn. Now, to pay a years-old debt, Evie must venture into the shadowy world that lies between myth and reality, where she will find betrayal, conspiracies, and revelations that will shatter all she believes about herself and the city she claims as home. When the Hunt is on, the Hound must run . . .

This sounds right up my street - a special power and a threat to the world with the heroine struggling between two worlds. Can't wait!

Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning
Publisher: Bantam (September 2007)
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae….


After seeing a lot of people going crazy over the release of Shadowfever a couple of week I was wondering what all the fuss was about having never seen these books before. But a little research and fact that it's available on kindle, I think I'll give it a go soon.

That's what I'm wishing for - what do want this week? :)

  2. Spiral Hunt sounds good!

    The Iron King is a really good fantasy story - I loved it; if you end up getting into it, the whole series is good and the last book so far is really, really terrific.

  4. Yes... you must read The Iron King and Darkfever. It is a moral imperative! I've heard good things about Spiral Hunt but I haven't read it. Great choices. You need to get those! :)
