Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Normally SQT does this post, but since she's on vacation I thought I'd give it a go. I'm looking forward to checking out the book below, since it seems to have a lot of elements I enjoy (military scifi, superpowers). This week's can't wait to read selection is: Shadow Ops: Control Point by Myke Cole ACE, January 31, 2012 All over the world, people have begun manifesting unusual talents. From those who heal the living to those who raise the dead, everybody’s hooked up to their own brand of magic—and no one’s in control. Trained in chaos, they’re erupting in damnable violence from one end of the country the other. Army officer Oscar Britton sees the worst of it. A lieutenant attached to the military’s Supernatural Operations Corps, his mission is to bring order to a word gone mad. Then he abruptly manifests a rare and prohibited magical power, transforming him overnight from government agent to public enemy number one. The SOC knows how to handle this kind of situation: hunt him down—and take him out. Driven into an underground shadow world, Britton is about to learn that magic has changed all the rules he's ever known, and that his life isn't the only thing he's fighting for. I'm going to have the chance to read an advance copy so look for a review here soon.

This isn't normally my first choice in a read, but it does sound interesting! A military sic-fi sounds like it would be fun to read. Thanks for sharing!

Here's my WoW!
