"Waiting On" Wednesday 13

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Fury of the Phoenix
By Cindy Pon
416 pages
Greenwillow Books, to be released March 29, 2011

When Ai Ling leaves her home and family to accompany Chen Yong on his quest to find his father, haunted by the ancient evil she thought she had banished to the underworld, she must use her growing supernatural powers to save Chen Yong from the curses that follow her. Part supernatural page-turner, part love story, and altogether stirring, Fury of the Phoenix further heralds the arrival of Cindy Pon as a stellar author of paranormal romance and fantasy.

I have been anticipating this sequel to Silver Phoenix for more than a year now. The first book had hints of romance, tons of danger and a kick-ass heroine—which you know I love—but it was the unique setting of supernatural, ancient Asia that made this book a winner for me. I'm excited to see how Cindy Pon handles the continuation of the story in book two!

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  8. Shadows of a Down East Summer: An Antique Print Mystery
    By Lea Wait
    Publication date: April 1, 2011

    In the summer of 1890, two young women posed for artist Winslow Homer on the coast of Maine. What happened that summer, the secrets the women kept, and the lies they told, changed their families forever. Now, more than a hundred years later, one of their descendants has been murdered, leaving to antique print dealer Maggie Summer the family papers that may finally reveal the truth. Maggie's vision of a relaxing vacation in Maine- antiquing with beau Will Brewer and visiting his Aunt Nettie- turns into a murder investigation. Maggie must discover which of the family myths are based on reality, before someone she cares about becomes the next victim. With the centennial of Homer's death in 2010, there is renewed interest in his work and in the renovation of his studio in Prouts Neck, Maine, where some of the novel's action takes place.

  9. I just bought the first book and am looking forward to the sequel. Great pick!

  10. This sounds very interesting. I love anything Asian. But the girl on the cover doesn't look Asian - do you think?
