Waiting on Wednesday – Caitlin Kittredge and Jeaniene Frost

'Waiting On' Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This week’s pick is:

Okay, actually I’m going to pick two books today.  August 30th is my birthday, and there are two books coming out that day that I’m excited about.  Both are continuations in series that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading so far.

The first pick is One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost.

 

So excited to read the next adventure of another favorite couple, Cat and Bones.  This is one of my favorite series and is never a disappointment.

Description from Goodreads:

The grave is one wrong step away.
Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But how do you kill a killer who's already long dead?

 

My second pick is Devil's Business by Caitlin Kittredge.

This has been an interesting series by Kittredge. Its different from a lot of the other paranormal books I read – more fantasy and magic and less romance.

Description from Goodreads (beware, it might contain spoilers for those who haven’t read the previous books):

Pete Caldecott did everything she could to save Jack from Hell, even reigning in the dark machinations of the Morrigan to help bring him home. Still, Black London has not welcomed Jack back with open arms. . . So when a friend in Los Angeles asks for help tracking a sorcerous serial killer, Pete and Jack decide a change of scenery couldn’t hurt. . .

But the shadow side of the City of Angels turns out to be more treacherous than they ever imagined. Together, Pete and Jack must navigate a landscape teeming with hostile magic-users— and fight an unknown enemy. When their investigation leads to a confrontation with the demon Belial, Jack learns that he wasn't the only thing to escape from Hell. Now it’s up to him and Pete to track and eliminate an evil older than the Black itself—before it turns L.A. into Hell on Earth. And destroys life as they know it back at home…

 

Comments welcome – I’d love to hear what you’re waiting for!

  2. I know that everyone raves about Cat and Bones. Unfortunately, the series is written in the first person, which is one of my pet reading peeves.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Cat & Bones, Cat & Bones - argh, really - these people are haunting me. I'm going to check my library's site now to see if they have the first one....otherwise I think I will be haunted forever if I don't get started with this series! :)

  6. Thanks! I would really suggest reading the Night Huntress series. Just beware, there are now Night Huntress "World" books that focus on other characters. Just read them all in order of publication date and you'll be okay.

    I didn't see the contest, but I'll stop back by because I'd love for a chance to win a copy! I'll have some contests coming up on the blog starting next month, so be sure to stop back by. :)

  12. They're not for everyone. I just got into the paranormal stuff about two years ago. But that's why I like WOW, so I can get other ideas for books to read too! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  13. I JUST realized that I didn't have them preordered yet, so I went through my calendar and preordered these two and several others. Can't wait!!! Not sure when, but Caitlin Kittredge is supposed to be doing a guest post on my blog coming up. I'm trying to set it up for the weekend following the release of Devil's Business so I have time to read and review it as well. :D
