where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.

Demon's Curse
by Alexa Egan
Series: Imnada Brotherhood #1
Publisher: Pocket Books
Publication date: December 26, 2012
Genre: Adult Historical Paranormal 
Purchase:Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

A fast-paced and captivating debut—the first in the dark and sexyImnada Brotherhood series about shape shifters in Regency-era England.

A rising star on the Covent Garden stage, Bianca Parrino believes she has everything she wants. Independence. Wealth. And a life finally free of her violent, abusive husband. But when her close friend, Adam, is murdered, and Bianca is suspected in his death, she is unwittingly drawn into the search for his killer, and soon must question everything she believes—about her friend, about herself, and about a world she never knew existed. A member of the mysterious race of shape-shifting Imnada and part of an elite military unit, Captain Mac Flannery gathered intelligence during the Napoleonic wars. As a result of a savage massacre, Mac and the men he served with are cursed. Now one of them has been found murdered, and Mac suspects the existence of the Imnada has been discovered at last. His only link to unearthing the truth is the beautiful actress who turns up unexpectedly at Adam’s funeral. Before long, Mac has more to contend with than Bianca’s overt mistrust, his ill-fated attraction to the haughty and beautiful actress, and his ongoing search for an end to the curse. Because Adam’s killer is back, and Mac is next on his list.

I am a series addict and I am always on the look out for new series. This historical fiction with shape-shifters has me drooling..I mean look at the cover! The cover whore inside me is screaming, "Mine, mine, mine.. gimme!" LOL 

Falling Kingdoms
by Morgan Rhodes
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication date: December 11, 2012
Genre: YA Fantasy
Purchase:Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:
Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.
Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.
Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.
Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword...
The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

After reading Throne of Glass I have been looking for another exciting fantasy and this one sounds interesting, plus the cover looks bad-ass!  

What are you waiting on?

I love regency-era books but don't think I've ever read a paranormal regency. Maybe it's time!

Both books look really good. I am gravitating toward that Falling Kingdoms I don't know why! Have a great Wednesday!
