Waiting on Wednesday

This is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming books.

This weeks can't wait to read selection is:

Doubletake: A Cal Leandros Novel by Rob Thurman
March 6, 2012
352 pages

Half-human/half-monster Cal Leandros knows that family is a pain. But now that pain belongs to his half-brother, Niko. Niko’s shady father is in town, and he needs a big favor. Even worse is the reunion being held by the devious Puck race — including the Leandros’ friend, Robin — featuring a lottery that no Puck wants to win.

As Cal tries to keep both Niko and Robin from paying the ultimate price for their kin, a horrific reminder from Cal’s own past arrives to remind him that blood is thicker than water — and that’s why it’s so much more fun to spill.

I gave the last book in this series a so-so review, but this is still my favorite paranormal series. I have high hopes that "Doubletake" will be a return to form.

I tried to comment on this 5 times yeasterday, and my stupid phone kept eating my comments!

I haven't heard of Rob Thurman, but this sounds FANTASTIC. I love the cover art--it reminds me of the Dark Horse Buffy covers--kind of dark and edgy, and all-round awesome.

Great pick :)

Wow Sarah, you are persistent. The series is great. The cover art on all of them is done by Chris McGrath and he does gorgeous covers.
