Waiting on Wednesday {13}

Hey everyone and welcome to my weekly Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, 
Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim fromkimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW is...Dark Awakened by H.D. Smith!

Last spring Claire’s seemingly normal—if not totally screwed up—life was tossed on its head. For five years she’d been one of the damned—a human that knows the truth about the otherworldly among us. She’d worked for The Boss—the Demon King himself—as his administrative assistant, handling everything from early retirements, to Maintenance’s incessant requests for dental.

No one gets dental.

Then she walked into Purgatory—totally not her fault—went back in time, and awakened powers she never knew existed. Now Claire has a prophecy hanging over her head, a diamond ring hidden in her sock drawer, and the blood of a long dead royal running through her veins.

And it’s only going to get worse.

Her vow to live free or die takes a serious hit when she’s forced back under The Boss’s protection. Of course, there’s no protection from fate, or the Bounty Hunter sent to deliver her to Purgatory. And as if being “the girl” in the prophecy wasn’t enough, Claire soon discovers there are three other contenders for her role—two of whom want her dead.

Follow more of Claire’s adventures in Dark Awakened, the second installment of the Devil’s Assistant Series, to find out if she’s lucky enough to escape with her life, or if she’s just the first notch on the next contender’s belt.


Why am I waiting?

If you guys will recall, a few months ago I read Dark Hope, the first novel in this series. While I had mixed feelings about it in the beginning, by the time I finished I was in love. I am so excited to continue this series. You guys all know how much I love a great paranormal story. What could better better than reading about the Devil's assistant? Right? It's actually a whole lot less fun than you would think. Smith throws in her special brand of humor on top of a gripping story line, which made Dark Hope so awesome. I know I will love this one just as much! I actually have an ARC for this and am starting it sometime this afternoon in anticipation of release day! Be sure to keep your eyes on this one folks!
What are YOU waiting on this week?
Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading!
