Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
I have two books for today -- one that's just been released and one that's upcoming.

The upcoming book:
Long Live the Queen (The Immortal Empire #3) by Kate Locke - November 11th from Orbit

*my review of Book 1, God Save the Queen**
Xandra Vardan thought life would be simpler when she accepted the goblin crown and became their queen, but life has only become more complicated. Everyone -- vampires, werewolves and humans -- wants the goblins on their side, because whoever has the goblins -- wins.

Queen Victoria wants her head, Alpha wolf Vex wants her heart, and she still doesn't know the identity of the person who wanted her blood. What she does know is that a project from one of the 'secret' aristocrat labs has gotten free and she's the only one who can stop the perfect killing machine -- a sixteen year-old girl. With human zealots intent on ridding the world of anyone with plagued blood and supernatural politics taking Britain to the verge of civil war, Xandra's finding out that being queen isn't all it's cracked up to be, and if she doesn't do something fast, hers will be the shortest reign in history.
I'm very carefully not reading this synopsis because I still have to read Book 2** in the series, The Queen is Dead but I'm also very much Waiting On this one, Book 3, due out November 12th from Orbit!

**Just as soon as I read a few books I have for review, you'd better believe I'm getting Book 2

The already released one:
Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance - released June 11th by Egmont
Fields’ Rule #1: Don’t fall for the enemy.

Berry Fields is not looking for a boyfriend. She’s busy trailing cheaters and liars in her job as a private investigator, collecting evidence of the affairs she’s sure all men commit. And thanks to a pepper spray incident during an eighth grade game of spin the bottle, the guys at her school are not exactly lining up to date her, either.

So when arrogant—and gorgeous—Tanner Halston rolls into town and calls her “nothing amazing,” it’s no loss for Berry. She’ll forget him in no time. She’s more concerned with the questions surfacing about her mother’s death.

But why does Tanner seem to pop up everywhere in her investigation, always getting in her way? Is he trying to stop her from discovering the truth, or protecting her from an unknown threat? And why can’t Berry remember to hate him when he looks into her eyes?

With a playful nod to Jane Austen, Spies and Prejudice will captivate readers as love and espionage collide.
This one's being marketed as Veronica Mars meets Pride and Prejudice, so I really can't wait to see if it lives up to that potential awesomeness.

  1. I'm halfway through Spies and Prejudice and I must say it's a very interesting book. I wasn't much impressed with Silver so I'm glad to be reading this. Great picks!
