Waiting on Wednesday #15


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.

Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr

Expected Publication: May 7th, 2013

*I receive a small monetary kickback from Amazon purchases

In Viking times, Norse myths predicted the end of the world, an event called Ragnarok that only the gods can stop. When this apocalypse happens, the gods must battle the monsters—wolves the size of the sun, serpents that span the seabeds—all bent on destroying the world.

The gods died a long time ago.

Matt Thorsen knows every Norse myth, saga, and god as if it was family history—because it is family history. Most people in the modern-day town of Blackwell, South Dakota, in fact, are direct descendants of either Thor or Loki, including Matt’s classmates Fen and Laurie Brekke.

However, knowing the legends and completely believing them are two different things. When the rune readers reveal that Ragnarok is coming and kids—led by Matt—will stand in for the gods in the final battle, he can hardly believe it. Matt, Laurie, and Fen’s lives will never be the same as they race to put together an unstoppable team to prevent the end of the world.

It didn’t take much for me to want this one since it’s centered around mythology…and it’s Norse so it’s not something that’s been done a thousand times (yet). Then I found out that the authors a Kelley Armstrong and Marissa Marr…and well now I have to check it out just to see what it’s going to be like.

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

Expected Publication: April 23, 2013
Purchase: Amazon*

*I receive a small monetary kickback from Amazon purchases

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

I’m not all that happy with the recent cover change to the series, but since I haven’t actually bought the first one yet I can’t complain too much. I really loved the first one because it had some very raw and monstrous vampires in it and I’m a fan of Kagawa’s writing style, so I can’t wait to see what happens to Allison in this one.

  1. I loved the Immortal Rules and I’m super excited for the next book! I don’t really like the cover changes. They are really plain now.
    My WOW

  2. Loki’s Wolves sounds interesting! I just finished my first Norse mythology book, and I enjoyed it! I LOVED The Immortal Rules and can’t wait for more Allie (and Kanin)! Blasted cover changes.

    Loki’s Wolves sounds great. I really don’t like the cover changes for the Blood of Eden covers either. I am excited for the second book though.. Nice picks.

  4. Yes, yes, yes on The Eternity Cure! I don’t really like the new covers, but I kind of had an issue with the 1st cover of IR. It was still better than the new ones though..
