Waiting on Wednesday #19

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Shadowfever (Fever, Book 5) by Karen Marie Moning
  • Hardcover: 608 pages
  • Publisher: Delacorte Press (January 18, 2011
Goodreads Description:

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years. What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac, and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman that haunts her dreams? More importantly, who is Mac and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card? From the luxury of the Lord Master's penthouse, to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover, to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac's journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and make a choice that will either save the world...or destroy it

Nice pick! I've seen a lot of dedicated fans of Moning...makes me wonder what I'm missing!

At first I thought this was a YA book until I read "erotic bed"...LOL. It does sound interesting though. I just started my first fairy book yesterday and I love it...before, I thought fairy stories would be lame. I was wrong!

Boo January! They better not push this date back again! I'm sad that they changed the cover scheme!

Raelena, January is getting closer... Now let all of us KMM fans pray hard that the book does not move farther out for release date, again!
I hope you get your copy to read, it has been a long wait for answers since last book was read!
