On My Wishlist #51

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 there are some new books out by my favourite authors so I desperately need these books!
A Monster Call - Patrick Ness
Publisher: Candlewick Press
At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting – he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth.
Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking trilogy was one of the best reading experiences ever so I am desperate to get my hands on this book as well. The cover looks super-creepy and I'm sure I'm going to hiding behind the sofa while reading it!
Fate's Edge (The Edge 3) - Ilona Andrews
Publisher: Ace Books
The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where magic is a fairy tale, and the Weird, where the strength of your magic can change your destiny. Audrey Callahan may come from a family of thieves and con men, but she left that life in the Edge behind and has gone straight with a legitimate—and thoroughly unmagical—job in the Broken. Then her brother gets in trouble, and her father cajoles her into helping out on one last heist. But Audrey is about to meet her match in Kaldar Mar, an Edger who has been on the wrong side of the law himself. Kaldar, a sometimes gambler, lawyer, thief, and spy with some unusual talents of his own, is assigned to track down a stolen item... and the trail leads him to Audrey. Forced to work together, Kaldar and Audrey discover that the missing item has made its way into the hands of a dangerous criminal organization—one they will have to outsmart if they want to live.

Ilona Andrews is one of my must buy authors - the Kate Daniels series just gets better and better and The Edge series is a slice of great fun.

Silver Tongued Devil (Sabina Kane 4) - Jaye Wells
Publisher: Orbit
Life is looking up for Sabina Kane. Now that her scheming grandmother is dead, the threat of war has passed and the rulers of the dark races are about to sign a treaty to ensure ongoing peace. Her relationship with sexy mage Adam Lazarus is strong and all her friends are around her. Even her magic training is progressing further than she ever expected. The only two dark spots in her otherwise settled life are her guilt over her sister Maisie's fragile mental state and Sabina's own sinking sense that she's got unfinished business with Cain, the mysterious cult leader she let get away months earlier. When a string of murders rock the New York dark races community and threatens to stall the peace negotiations, Sabina finds herself helping to find the killer. Her investigation leads her down troubling paths that have her questioning everything - and everyone - she knows. And the closer she gets to the murderer, the more Sabina realises this is one foe she may not able to kill.

Sabina Kane is another favourite character of mine and after the events of Green Eyed Demon, I can't wait to see to see what trouble she's getting up too - I can't believe a happy ever after would last long for her!
