"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Angel by L.A.Weatherly. Here is the GoodReads blurb:
"In a world where angels are beyond redemption, Alex thinks he's found one that might deserve mercy. Alex is a ruthless assassin - of angels. Forget everything you've heard about them before. Angels are not benign celestial creatures, but fierce stalkers whose irresistible force allows them to feed off humans, draining them of their vitality until there is barely anything left. As far as Alex is concerned, the only good angel is a dead angel...until he meets Willow. She may look like a normal teenager but Willow is no ordinary girl. Half-angel, half-human, Willow may hold the key to defeating the evil angels. But as the hunter and the hunted embark on an epic and dangerous journey and Willow learns the dark and terrifying secrets of her past, Alex finds himself drawn to Willow...with devastating consequences. Eoin Colfer reinvented the fairy, Stephenie Meyer reinvented the vampire, L.A. Weatherly reinvents the angel! This is a heart-pounding, knuckle-whitening, paranormal romance action-adventure for fans of the "Twilight" series. This is the first in a devastating new trilogy."
Firstly, it's an angel book so I'm automatically sold but secondly, it sounds like a new spin on angel mythology and that certainly piques my interest. The book releases on 1st October and I'm pre-ordering now. The author, L.A.Weatherly will be touring parts of the UK in October so keep an eye on the facebook page here for more information. I will be at one of them for sure! I'm also hoping to have an ARC of Angel tour the UK over on my other site UK Book Tours so look out for that really soon!
