Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating.
What the heck happened to Wednesday? Aw man, I know sometimes time flies, but I think I just totally skipped it. Oh great, if this is going to keep happening I'm not sure what I'm going to do. It wouldn't be so bad if everything that I needed to get done on Wednesday was magically done. Then I would make sure that everything needed to be done on Wednesday, and 'poof' on Thursday I could just sit back and relax. Well, a girl can dream can't she? So, because Wednesday was left off of the calender this week (for me, anyways) you get to enjoy Waiting on Wednesday on Thursday! Yay for you!
The Wicked Game by Michelle Zink
Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.
The voodoo business.
of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret
society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an
underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays
along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in
the family store, but she has a secret.
She doesn’t believe.
to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific
craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and
voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant
conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s
powerful founding family.
But when a mysterious customer places
an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s
more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets
Including her own.
As she bands together with the
other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly
enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her. ~Goodreads
