Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
For my first WoW, I've chosen the first installment in a new Urban Fantasy series:
Expected publication: May 22nd 2012
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Paperback, 352 pages
From debut author Cassie Alexander comes a spectacular new urban fantasy series where working the night shift can be a real nightmare.
Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine—from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond…
Edie’s just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she’s haunted by the man’s dying words—Save Anna—and before she knows it, she’s on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. Grey’s Anatomy was never like this…
I'm always so excited about new urban fantasy series! It is my genre of choice after all, and I'm afraid there aren't that many good ones left for me to read. Luckily, there was Discount Armageddon last month, the first installment in a new series by Seanan McGuire called InCriptyd, that lived up to my very high expectations, and now there's Nightshifted. I discovered this book accidentally, on The Book Depository, and pre-ordered it right away. I hope it doesn't disappoint. What do you guys think?
