On My Wishlist #35

Don't forget to check out my MERCY THOMPSON GIVEAWAY - Ends tomorrow, open INT :)


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 want some scarey vampires...
A Rush of Wings - Adrian Phoenix
Publisher: Pocket Books
HIS NAME IS DANTE.
Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.
HIS PAST IS A MYSTERY.
F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be "nightkind": in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.
HIS FUTURE IS CHAOS.
What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer -- and she's pretty sure that link makes him the CCK's next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man -- who, she begins to believe, may indeed be a vampire -- in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante's past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny....

The fourth book in this series has just been released but before I get that far I need to start at the beginning! Looks like an UF so I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it!

Through Stone and Sea - Barb & JC Hendee
Puiblisher: ROC
Wynn journeys to the mountain stronghold of the dwarves in search of the "Stonewalkers," an unknown sect supposedly in possession of important ancient texts. But in her obsession to understand these writings, she will find more puzzles and questions buried in secrets old and new-along with an enemy she thought destroyed...

I loved the Noble Dead series which was kind of like Buffy set in Middle-Earth complete with vampires, elves and ancient gods. I'm happy that the initiall 5 book series has had a spin-off series and this is the second book. I already have the first, In Shade and Shadow, on TBR pile but I know I want this as well! :)

Hunt The Moon (Cassandra Palmer 5)- Karen Chance
Publisher: UK - Penguin


Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you’d think would buy a girl a little time off.
But when your job is being Pythia – the world’s chief clairvoyant – you don’t get a lot of R&R. Cassie is busier than ever, discovering her power, figuring out her complicated relationship with enigmatic and sexy vampire Mircea, and preparing for her upcoming coronation.
But someone is dead set against Cassie being Pythia, and will go to any lengths to stop the coronation ceremony from happening – including making sure that Cassie is never born.
Now, Cassie has to save herself – and the world, if she can find the time …

I love the Cassandra Palmer series - there is so much action it leaves me breathless! The latest in the series isn't out until August in the UK, but I'm counting down the days!

So what are you wishing for this week? :)

  8. Great choices. Oh I need to start the Phoenix ones. It's not good to start in the middle (trust me... lol). Plus I'm behind on my Cassie stories. Oh I need to get back into those. Love those.

    Hey, my wishlist expands no matter what I do! ;D

  9. Sure, lure me into wanting Rush of Wings with the great description and then at the end, hit me with the fact that it's a book mid-way into a series (sob). ;) I have sooo many series' to start just because I originally wanted book 3 or 5 or whatever, lol.

    They all sound really good, I hope you get to read them soon.

    (off to look for the series)
