Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.
My pick this week:
Soulbound - Lone Star Witch #1
by Tessa Adams
Publication Date: February 5th, 2013
As the seventh
daughter of a seventh daughter—and a member of Ipswitch’s Royal
family—Xandra Morgan should be a witch of incredible power. But things
don’t always turn out like you expect…
While she hasn’t
lived up to her family’s expectations, Xandra has come to terms with her
latent magic and made a life for herself in Austin, Texas, running a
coffee shop where she makes potions of a non-magical nature. While
things aren’t perfect, Xandra is happy—until she runs into powerful
warlock Declan Chumomisto.
Xandra hasn’t seen Declan in years,
and though she’s still overwhelmed by his power, she doesn’t trust him.
And when her own powers awaken one night and lead her to the body of a
woman in the woods bearing the symbol of Isis—the same one that has
marked Xandra since the day she met Declan—she’s filled with a terrible
suspicion, soon confirmed: the woman is connected to him.
Xandra doesn’t want to believe that Declan is capable of murder, but as
the body count mounts, and Xandra’s own powers spiral out of control,
she’s not sure she can trust her own instincts…
