Waiting on Wednesday (19)

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

The holidays have come to an end, and the New Year is upon us shortly! All of our anticipated publication will be coming out soon enough but there are still many more books to be waiting for! The one I have chosen for this weeks "WoW" I have seen around the RazOrbill website a couple times! I had never thought to put it up for discussion until now seeing as I have been an angel reading frenzy. So what do you all think??

Immortal City by Scott Speer
Publisher: RazOrbill
Expected Publication: April 3rd, 2012

"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."

 As I had said above I have had my eye on this book for a while. To start off as usual, the cover! Nothing too glamourous, and no billowing dresses like my usual choices, but a well muscled individual with wings is not a bad choice either! It just begs for the "come touch me" sort of look to the cover, and the tattoo suggest a bit of a bad boy as well. I'm throwing a new category into the cover art listing, the "stop me in my tracks gorgeous" cover! Secondly, FINALLY an Angel story where the main characters aren't guessing for three quarters of the book if he is or isn't an angel or some sort of supernatural being. We already know that this community basically worships the ground these angels walk on, but of course there is always one person who doesn't. I must admit the plot doesn't sound too supernatural but it does have a very modern twist to an old genre. It seems to be a very hollywood type of story, lots of glam and glitz but there is an underlying evil looming about. Not everything is as perfect as it seems in this upcoming publication!
