Waiting on Wednesday (10): On a Dark Wing by Jordan Dane

December 7, 2011

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It gives bloggers a chance to showcase books they’re waiting for and it’s a great way to find new books! So, head on over to Breaking the Spine to sign up or to check out other people’s posts!

The first book I’m really looking forward to comes out in a few weeks, so the wait isn’t too long, thankfully. I could talk about how amazing I think Jordan Dane’s On a Dark Wing sounds,  but I think I’ll just let you read the synopsis and drool over the cover for yourselves. 🙂
Five years ago Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her lucky break came at the expense of her mother’s life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.

Now she’s the target of Death’s Ravens and an innocent boy’s life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey’s secret crush—starts to climb Alaska’s Denali, the Angel of Death is with him because of her.

Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets. (GoodReads)

I know people are saying angels are out and mermaids are in, but I love angel books and hope the trend continues strongly. Though, here’s a mermaid-ish book I’m extremely excited for:

Miranda has lived on Whym Island since the death of her parents. She has taken comfort in its seclusion and in the folklore that claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and its surrounding waters. It’s just been easier to believe that things are out of her control.

But when a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy that haunts her dreams. As the guilt of the accident consumes her, she finds refuge in her late night swims. Then, she meets Christian, a boy who seems so familiar, but won’t tell her where he is from and why they can only meet at the beach. As Miranda falls for Christian and begins to put the accident behind her, she discovers that there are secrets that Christian is keeping to protect her that may only end up bringing her nothing but harm. (GoodReads)

    On a Dark Wing is definitely my kind of read. Killer Death Ravens? WOW. And I love water covers, and mysterious boys in the water, so Wrecked is a certifiable must-read.

    Have an amazing reading week!
