Waiting on Wednesday (16)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by "Breaking the Spine" were bloggers can post their anticipated upcoming publications!

This weeks WoW was a little more difficult due to the recent break up with my significant other. I wanted something fun and light hearted - something everyone would like. But all I kept finding was a constant theme of sad and depressed books. Soooo I think I found a good mixture of excitement and breakup sadness as I like to say. 



Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
Publication Date: December 8th, 2011
Publisher: Philomel/Penguin

A thrilling debut story of death, love, destiny and danger

"Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries."

"Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon."
Thoughts: the best thing about this book is that it is not a long wait till it is published in Canada, only 8 short days away! I absolutely love the cover as well ... the flow of the petals, the coloration of the entire cover the red and greens, very earthly, and of course how the girl is positioned on the cover - almost free falling, I love every little bit of the cover! The description at first through me off, reminding me a lot of Rachel Vincent's novels "Soul Screamers" but then the whole guardian part of it is very intriguing to me. I also really enjoy the uniqueness of the name used of the characters, Lenzi and Alden. So this is my "Waiting on Wednesday", a little bit of excitement for a new release with a mixture of romance, fantasy, and death.
