On My Wishlist #13

Hosted by Book Chick City.

Actually, the amazing Karina has offered me her copy of Sins of the Angels but I wanted to include it this week so I shall. I’ve spoken to Linda a little on twitter and she is absolutely lovely.

Sins of the Angels (Grigori Legacy #1) by Linda Poitevin

A detective with a secret lineage. An undercover Hunter with a bullet-proof soul. And a world made to pay for the sins of an angel…

Homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis answers to no one. Especially not to the new partner assigned to her in the middle of a gruesome serial killer case—a partner who is obstructive, irritatingly magnetic, and arrogant as hell.

Aramael is a Power—a hunter of the Fallen Angels. A millennium ago, he sentenced his own brother to eternal exile for crimes against humanity. Now his brother is back and wreaking murderous havoc in the mortal realm. To find him, Aramael must play second to a human police officer who wants nothing to do with him and whose very bloodline threatens both his mission and his soul.

Now, faced with a fallen angel hell-bent on triggering the apocalypse, Alex and Aramael have no choice but to join forces, because only together can they stop the end of days.

I have have HAVE to own the UK hardback of The Night Circus. Seriously! It’s so gorgeous and the story sounds right up my street!

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

A paranormal romance. Little different for me, I’m not into romance and paranormal romance is no different but two of the people I trust most with book recommendations have said it is fantastic, so I’ll give it a go. I can deal with a bit of rumpy pumpy and, duh: dragons!

Dragon Bound (Elder Races #1) by Thea Harrison

Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.

As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they’ve ignited in each other.

Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul.

      I love the whole creepy circus vibe and I have to check this one out! And yus, Amanda recommended it then I saw your review and with that and the whole dragons thing? Yeah. I will have to get a copy!

  2. I’m reading The Night Circus at the moment. Oh my freaking Christ. It’s amazing. I just start reading it and find out an hour has passed. It’s obsessive and time consuming and maybe the best book I’ve read all year. If no one gets you this, and you don’t buy it, I promise you I will buy it for you. You cannot miss this.
