Stacking My Imaginary Shelf
Rather than talk about the amazing things I got in the mail (because I don't get $h!t), let's talk about a book on your wishlist that you are desperate to purchase, but haven't yet for some reason. Maybe it hasn't been published yet, or maybe it's hard to find, maybe you're just a penny-pincher like me and haven't gathered the funds to purchase the book.
What books are in your imaginary bookshelf?
My Wish List:
So I'm the worst super-fan ever. I've loved this series for several years now. I stumbled on the first book at a book sale inside the Houston Chronicle. Purchased the second immediately after reading book 1, then pounced on book 3 when it published, same for 4 and 5, but for some reason, I have yet to purchase book 6. I really can't explain it, other than I'm a cheap-ass-bastard, and I've been pretty pore this year.
If you're into urban fantasy where the main character is a bad-ass chick who can take down a lion if she has to, you will love this series.
Magic Rises (Kate Daniels #6)
Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost.
Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.
Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…
