Waiting on Wednesday - Chloe Neill & Veronica Rossi

 

Hi everyone!! thank-you so much for stopping by today.

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

I couldn’t decide on one so I have two WoW’s for this week - Riders by Veronica Rossi and The Veil by Chloe Neill.

Riders

Author: Veronica Rossi
Series: Riders
Amazon pre-order
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release date: 2nd February 2016


Synopsis. (Goodreads)

For eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake, nothing but death can keep him from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.
Recovering from the accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself with strange new powers and a bizarre cuff he can’t remove. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the legendary four horsemen of the apocalypse.
Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen—Conquest, Famine and Death—are brought together by a beautiful but frustratingly secretive girl to help save humanity from an ancient evil on the emergence.
They fail.
Now—bound, bloodied, and drugged—Gideon is interrogated by the authorities about his role in a battle that has become an international incident. If he stands any chance of saving his friends and the girl he’s fallen for—not to mention all of humankind—he needs to convince the skeptical government officials the world is in imminent danger.
But will anyone believe him?

The Veil (Devil's Isle, #1)

Author: Chloe Neill
Series: Devil’s Isle
Amazon pre-order
Publisher: NAL Trade
Release date: 4th August 2015


Synopsis. (Goodreads)


Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil's Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…

  8. I have The Veil in my WoW post for this month too! I really enjoy a lot of urban fantasy even though I never really review it. I never managed to finish her Chicagoland Vampires series - I always seem to quit series after 6 books or so because WHO'S GOT TIME FOR THAT but The Veil sounds even better!
