Waiting on Wednesday: Shadowspell by Jenna Black

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?

    Yeah, I know this came out Tuesday, but I completely missed it.  I may have to resort to a gift card purchase ASAP --


    1. I've heard pretty good things about this series !! It's the sequel of Glimmerglass, isn't it ? I really have to buy the first one !! Great pick !! Here's my WoW if you'd like to take a look at it : onceuponaquote.blogspot.com !!

    2. Lovely cover
      But It's hard for me to catch what the synopsis trying to say

    3. l do agree with you Aleetha! There are so many words in the blurb l don't really get the story very much. That makes me want to read it to understand that 'new world' though!
