"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted be Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: Courting Darkness ( Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon, Book 10) by Yasmine Galenorn. We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae means our powers go haywire at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah is a Death Maiden and werecat who belongs to the Autumn Lord. My sister Menolly is a vampire who's dating a gorgeous werepuma, and the godfather of the undead-set. And me? I'm Camille, Priestess of the Moon Mother, married to a dragon, a youkai, and a Svartan. But my dragon father-in-law has decided that he doesn't like having me for a member of the family...It's Winter Solstice, and Aeval welcomes me into her Court of Darkness. With Morio still dangerously weak from his injuries and Vanzir alive only thanks to my silence, the thought of training under Morgaine doesn't seem as daunting as it did. But then, Hyto returns to shatter my life. Captured and swept off to the Dragon Reaches, can I manage to stay alive long enough to escape, even as Smoky's father intends to break my spirit, then my body?WARNING: If you get in my way of this book, you will be courting my darkenss!Drink Deep ( Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon, Book 10) by Chloe Neill. Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city iself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.WARNING: If you get in my way of this book, I will make you drink in deep at the bottom of the ocean!My thoughts: I love both these series. I am very happy that I bought the Yasmine Galenorn books recently on Ebay so I can read a couple of the previous books I didn't get a chance to read before I bought this one. If you haven't read this series....your missing out. I look forward to this book because I am a Smokey fan. I also enjoy the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill. I confess, Chloe Neill keeps throwing me curveballs...I haven't a clue how the story will proceed. I do know how I would like the outcome to be....but, I just don't know if it will.....What's your "waiting on" pick this week? Want to participate?
