This week's Waiting on Wednesday selection is:
Blood Oranges By Kathleen Tierney
Release Date: February 5, 2013
My name’s Quinn.
If you buy into my reputation, I’m the most notorious demon hunter in New England. But rumors of my badassery have been slightly exaggerated. Instead of having kung-fu skills and a closet full of medieval weapons, I’m an ex-junkie with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. Or the right place at the wrong time. Or…whatever.
Wanted for crimes against inhumanity I (mostly) didn’t commit, I was nearly a midnight snack for a werewolf until I was “saved” by a vampire calling itself the Bride of Quiet. Already cursed by a werewolf bite, the vamp took a pint out of me too.
So now…now, well, you wouldn’t think it could get worse, but you’d be dead wrong.
Normally I might not necessarily highlight "Blood Oranges" as WoW title, writing it off as another vampire/werewolf bit of paranormal fiction in a genre littered with books just like it. But as Kathleen Tierney is actually a pseudonym for author Caitlin R. Kiernan I'm immediately intrigued. Kiernan has written some excellent fantasy fiction in the past and I have high hopes that "Blood Oranges" will show similar depth and imagination as her previous books.
