“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme

 hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

by Kat Richardson
Series: Greywalker #8
Publisher: Penguin/Roc
Publication date: August 6, 2013
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy

When a comatose woman suddenly wakes up and starts painting scenes she’s never witnessed, with a skill she’s never had, medical science has no explanation. As more bizarre phenomena manifest, even her doctors start to wonder if the woman may be possessed. Frustrated and frightened, the patient’s sister reluctantly turns to Greywalker Harper Blaine to discover who—or what—is occupying her sister’s body. As Harper digs into the case of apparent possession, she discovers other patients struck with the same mystifying afflictions and a disturbing connection to one of the most gruesome stories in Washington’s history…

I love the Greywalker series and watching the character growth in Harper as she learns more about her abilities and solves each new case. Every book gets better and better. Eep!  This is an auto-buy for me and I cannot wait!

Ashes on the Waves
by Mary Lindsey
Publisher: Penguin
Publication date: June 27, 2013
Genre: YA Gothic Retelling/Paranormal
Purchase*: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository 

Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever. With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied; but, the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed. Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem Annabel Lee, Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love.

Doesn’t Ashes on the Waves sound creep-tastic! It’s based on Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee and I cannot wait to devour this Gothic tale!

What are you waiting on?

    I’m excited to read more about Ashes on the Waves. That’s one brave author taking on Poe!

  2. Melissa

    I have the first Kat book here for that series. Dang, another one I need to get to…

  3. Melissa (Books and Things)

    I’m so behind on the greywalker series. I think I’m at #4 (will have to check). So glad to see the series is still going strong!

  4. Jennifer

    Oh I just love the cover for Ashes on the Waves!!! Possession looks good too, but man, it’s so hard to get into series when they are so far along 🙁

  5. Trish Hannon

    I already lusted after Ashes in the Waves when I saw the cover. And its based on one of Poe’s poems, be still my beating heart! I need this book 🙂

  6. Anna

    Hmm. Hadn’t seen any of those before Kimberly but I’ve had Kat Richardson on my tbr list for quite some time. She looks like an interesting author.

  7. Jan

    I haven’t read any of Kat Richardson’s books. Somehow I missed them. I’m going to go look for the first books in the series.

    Ashes on the Waves does sound pretty creepy! I have such a low creep tolerance that I don’t know I I could actually read this one! Haha

  9. kindlemom1

    You know, I haven’t read a Kat Richardson book yet, I think I need to rectify that!
    Ashes on the Waves looks so good! Okay, and the gorgeous cover doesn’t hurt. 😉

    I really wanted to like the Greywalker series and I made it through book 6, I think, but there was just too much explaining going on. Pages and pages of explanations about how magic, the grey and everything else worked. I felt like I was back in college reading my Chemistry textbook (because I hated Chemistry and didn’t understand it one bit). I finally said no more.

  11. GRgenius

    Nice WOW picks! Gotta say the cover on the second one is definitely dramatic…as it should be considering the retelling mentioned. Thanks for the heads up! Happy reading! ^_^

  12. Carmel

    Oooh, so THIS is the series that you’ve been talking about! Greywalker, right?? Looks like I have some catching up to do.

  13. Candace's Book Blog

    The Greywalker series is on #8 already?! I read the first one but that was years ago now and I’m not sure I would remember it. I really liked it though so I need to pick up the second one and hope that I remember the first.

  14. thegeekyblogger

    Oh I love that Mary Lindsey cover! That is pretty darn awesome!

  15. Jenny

    Anything based on the writings of Poe is something I want to read. Man was creepy. I like creepy as long as it doesn’t cross over into downright scary. With scary I turn into a shaking mess of wimp-dom who needs every light in the house on at all times:) Still, really looking forward to Ashes on the Waves!

  16. kimbacaffeinate

    Dang Melissa so much has happened and every book just gets better, well if you read a book a month starting in April you can be caught up before this comes out..you can do it!!!

  17. Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    Graywalker #8 already?!? OMG, I’m SO behind! I don’t know how I’ll manage to catch up and I love that series.
    As for Mary Lindsey, I loved her previous novel and I love that this is based on Annabel Lee, although I generally dislike retellings.

  18. kimbacaffeinate

    Oooh Maja I knew you were cool..I just didn’t know how cool until now! *happy dance* Now hurry up and catch up. I am equally excited about Lindsey’s book, I actual like retellings and of course I love Poe:)

  19. Heidi

    I am back. Sorry I have been AWOL. We have had a stomach bug at our house, and now I am woefully behind. I think the second book sounds fantastic. I love books set in Ireland and banshees are always exciting, an add it is based on Poe! Sounds like a good one for October! Love the cover as well!

  20. kimbacaffeinate

    ya know…i missed you and last night I almost reached out on facebook and I thought well I will give her another day. Hope you are all feeling better,

  21. Lauren

    SO excited for Ashes on the Waves and I really need to start Kat’s series, I keep hearing amazing things. Great picks!

  22. Turning the Pages
