Waiting on Wednesday {8}

12.14.2011
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Immortal City by Scott Speer
Expected publication: April 3rd 2012 by Razorbill

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

I don't care what people say about angels. I still like them. And I love the idea of this - angels out in the open, known by everyone. It's not something that's done very often. This is one of those books I'm totally lusting for O_O

Plus, I kind of love the name Jackson.

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? Leave a link! :)

  1. I have to admit, when I read first read the word "Angel" in this paragraph, I was kind of blerf. But then I continued and now I really, really want to read it. Angel city? Angels on TV? What?! I think angels as celebrities are such an interesting concept because I don't think that's been done before! Even though sometimes I get annoyed, I am always a sucker for those girl-doesn't-recognise-a-famous-celeb stories.

    This is what I'm waiting for! :) http://bit.ly/tKzNmU

  2. This sounds like a great read! I thought I would have gotten bored of angel stories by now, but clearly not. My WOW has a touch of angel in it, too. :)

  6. I don't like angels as much anymore (apart from Unearthly by Cynthia Hand) but this looks like a fresh take. And I'm entirely open to this one.

    Have an amazing reading week!
