"Waiting On" Wednesday: April 20 Edition

Dark Descendant
Author: Jenna Black
Publication Date: April 26, 2011
Publisher: Pocket

Synopsis from GoodReads:

From the acclaimed author of the Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist books comes the gripping first novel in a new series about a private eye who discovers, to her surprise, that she’s an immortal huntress.

Nikki Glass can track down any man. But when her latest client turns out to be a true descendant of Hades, Nikki now discovers she can’t die. . . . Crazy as it sounds, Nikki’s manhunting skills are literally god-given. She’s a living, breathing descendant of Artemis who has stepped right into a trap set by the children of the gods. Nikki’s new “friends” include a descendant of Eros, who uses sex as a weapon; a descendant of Loki, whose tricks are no laughing matter; and a half-mad descendant of Kali who thinks she’s a spy. But most powerful of all are the Olympians, a rival clan of immortals seeking to destroy all Descendants who refuse to bow down to them. In the eternal battle of good god/bad god, Nikki would make a divine weapon. But if they think she’ll surrender without a fight, the gods must be crazy. . . .

I absolutely love Jenna Black's Morgan Kingsley series, so I am excited to read this new book and series. I hope it will be just as paranormal, fun, some kink here and there, and a kick-ass heroine.

Shift (Shade #2)
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready
Publication Date: May 3, 2011
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Synopsis from GoodReads:

Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to. Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

I am very excited to see how this second part of the Aura/Logan story plays out. The concept of seeing ghosts and shades, due to the Shift, is quite an interesting plot line.
