As a bloodtracker, Liv is extremely powerful. And in a world where power is a commodity that can get you killed, Liv's learnt to survive by her own rules. Rule number one? Trust no one.
But when a friend's daughter goes missing, Liv is bound by a potent magical oath. She can't rest until the child is safe. And that means trusting her dangerous ex, Cam. A sinister prophecy tells that she and Cam will be the death of each other, yet Liv's tired of being a slave to destiny. She's ready to play the forces controlling her world at their own game.
No matter the cost
I loved Rachel's werecat/Shifter series and she's now an automatic must buy author. However, even without the Rachel Vincent name I think I would want to read this as it sounds so good!
Gwen Frost is an outsider at Mythos Academy, a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword. Gwen is an outsider both to the students of the Academy and the rest of the world. But when her gift of psychometry - the ability to know an object's history just by touching it reveals dark undercurrents and danger afoot, she has no choice but to get involved.
I have to confess that I've not read any of Estep's Elemental Assassins series yet (but I will!), however, this new YA series looks great - kind of like Hogwarts crossed with Camelot!
Timecaster - Joe Kimball
Publisher: Ace Books
Chicago, 2064: Talon Avalon is a timecaster-one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV, the Tachyon Emission Visualizer, which records events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened. With crime at an all-time low, Talon has little to do except give lectures to school kids and obsess on his wife's profession as a licensed sex partner. Until one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder. When Talon uses the TEV to view the crime, the identity of the killer is unmistakable-it's him, Talon Avalon.
As regular followers may know, I do love a bit of time travel and while this might seem similar to minority report, I love the idea of being able to see the future. I definitely think is worth checking out!
So what are you wishing for this week? :-)
