"Waiting On" Wednesday: Radiant Shadows
Synopsis (from WickedLovely.com)
Hunger for nourishment.
Hunger for touch.
Hunger to belong.
Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.
Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries’ coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani’s death.
Ani isn’t one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin’s plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?
This series has been one of my favorites ever since picking up Wicked Lovely just last year and flying through Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity. Going to Melissa Marr's book signing last summer really had me pumped for this book, so while I am only just now posting it as a W.O.W. book, I've been anxiously awaiting its release for quite some time now.
