On My Wishlist (7)

On My Wishlist
Every Saturday, Book Chick City hosts our wonderful meme where we get to post books we’re crossing our fingers and toes will make our way to our bookshelves soon (see, last week I was lusting, this week I’m being more circumspect).  They can be older books, new stuff or things that haven’t been released yet – things with super-hot covers are appreciated by me, since I’m a cover-coveter – say that ten times fast.  If you want to join up, there’s a Mr. Linky always ready to go at Book Chick City on Saturday and there’s a super list of blogs to jump to, to read every one else’s wishlists too!

Yesterday, thanks to a big recommendation by Pam at Bookalicious, I bought a new-to-me author’s book, Devil’s Kiss by Sarwat Chadda.  It came out a little bit ago and is the start of a YA series, so I’m wishing for the next book, which just came out last month.

Dark Goddess
Dark Goddess (Billi SanGreal #2)

By Sarwat Chadda
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Publication Date: January 25, 2011
Genre: YA fantasy, urban fantasy

new enemies, new romance, new horrors..

Billi’s back, and it seems like the Unholy just can’t take a hint.

Still reeling from the death of her best friend, Kay, Billi’s thrust back into action when the Templar’s are called to investigate werewolf activity.  And werewolves are like nothing Billi’s seen before.

They call themselves the Polenitsy – Man Killers.  The ancient warrior women of ancient Europe, supposedly wiped out centuries ago.  But now they’re out of hiding and on the hunt for a Spring Child – an Oracle powerful enough to blow the volcano at Yellowstone, precipitating a Fimbulwinter that will wipe out humankind for good.

The Templars follow the Spring Child to Russia, and the only people there who can help are the Bogatyrs, a group of knights who may have gone to the dark side.  To reclaim the Spring Child and save the world, Billi needs to earn the trust of Ivan Romanov, an arrogant young Bogatyr who’s suspicious of people in general, and of Billi in particular.

  1. Sounds interesting, never heard of the series before.Thanks for the side-note about having trouble getting books in Europe. If I lived in the UK, I could just go to the book store, but here if I want books in English the selection is limited in stores or I'd have to ask them to order them for me. Luckily there is online shopping, which works out sooner or later.
