On My Wishlist #77

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! I'm lusting after some Urban Fantasy again this week!
Darker Angels (Black Sun's Daughter 2) - M.L.N. Hanover
Publisher: UK - Orbit
When Jayné Heller's uncle Eric died, she inherited a fortune beyond all her expectations — and a dangerous mission in a world she never knew existed. Reining in demons and supernatural foes is a formidable task, but thankfully Jayné has vast resources and loyal allies to rely on. She'll need both to tackle a bodyswitching serial killer who's taken up residence in New Orleans, a city rich in voodoo lore and dark magic.
Working alongside Karen Black, a highly confident and enigmatic ex-FBI agent, Jayné races to track down the demon's next intended host. But the closer she gets, the more convinced she becomes that nothing in this beautiful, wounded city is exactly as it seems. When shocking secrets come to light, and jealousy and betrayal turn trusted friends into adversaries, Jayné will soon come face-to-face with an enemy that knows her all too well, and won't rest until it has destroyed everything she loves most...
Unclean Spirits was a great introduction, but I'm keen to see the potential in this series fulfilled. Hopefully Darker Angels will step up the story. :)
A Little Night Magic - Lucy March
Publisher:St Martin's Griffin
Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends . . . but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed. As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?
This looks like a lot of fun - plus waffles - yummy! :)
Nightshifted - Cassie Alexander
Publisher: St Martins Press (May 2012)
Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine--from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond...
Edie's just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she's haunted by the man's dying words--"Save Anna"--and before she knows it, she's on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. "Grey's Anatomy" was never like this...

Nightshifted isn't out yet but I've seen this toted around the blogosphere and like the idea of a nurse as a main character!

What are you wishing for this week? (Besides world peace and fat free food to taste good, of course?)


  1. I am wishing for..dunno really, the same books I have lusted over for months I guess ;)

  2. I like the sound of A Little Night Magic I need to add that to my wish list too.

  3. Nightshift added to my to-read list :))

  4. Wonderful wish books here. I read the first two books of MLN Hanover and have the next two here to read. I do need to get back to that series to see what happens with Jayne.
