Waiting on Wednesday (65): Inferno & Magic Rises

Time for "Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine! Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating! 

  Coming Soon...
Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon

To Be Published: April 9th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin
"The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen…

Nick has his driver’s license and he’s not afraid to use it. But turning sixteen isn’t what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he’s been told will ultimately kill him.

But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it. As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it’s the one that leaves your enemies confused, and you even more so.

And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?"
My Ramblings on Inferno: I have really enjoyed the other three novels in the Chronicles of Nick series, so I will probably enjoy this one as well! Just another week and I can add this one to my collection.  This series, while not a deep read, is an enjoyable one.  I like the crazy plots and all of the characters.  I am looking forward to reading more about Nick! However, this is probably the cover I like the least so far of the series.  Nick's position just looks kind of awkward... Is he running? Is he dancing ballet? Not sure. haha..
 Waiting for the long haul...

Magic Rises (Kate Daniels 6) by Ilona Andrews
To Be Published: July 30th 2013 by Ace
"Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…"
My Ramblings on Magic Rises: YES PLEASE. I love this series and can't wait to get more of Kate and Curran! We have had an extra long wait for this one, so I am really looking forward to it.  Oh, and have you read the synopsis yet? Looks like the little kiddos will be getting the short end of the stick in this novel = instant tear-jerker.  I am also hoping that Ilona Andrews will continue to write spin-off series for her other characters *cough*Derek*cough* ;). Oh and as for the cover - I love it. Probably my favorite of the entire series.
