Wednesday Wishes

Finally looked at Blogger’s HTML editor and I realized a lot of things changed again. *sigh* Sometimes upgrades are annoying.

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

second_starGet it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Paranormal YA
Series: N/A

A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.

A retelling of Peter Pan. Where Wendy has both Peter and Hook in a love triangle! Sign me up!

Genre: Paranormal Romance 
Series: Gargoyles, book 1

From bestselling author Christine Warren comes a thrilling new series about a young woman caught between a rock and a hard place—between gargoyles and demons…

Ella Harrow is trying to carve out a normal life for herself. Well, as normal as an art geek with psychic abilities can hope for. As museum docent and gift-shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people—and her powers in check—while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves. But how on earth is she supposed to act normal when a thousand-year-old statue on the museum's terrace suddenly comes to life?

Heart of Stone

Not your ordinary gargoyle, Kees has been asleep for eons, waiting for a portent of evil to wake him from his slumber. Kees isn't a vision; he's a bat-winged guardian created to protect the world from the seven demons of the Dark. Somehow, Ella triggered his reawakening. Maybe the demons have been unleashed? Maybe his heart is finally ready to be chiseled open? The fate of the world isn't carved in stone…yet.

It has Gargoyles! Nuff said!

Foretold by Rinda Elliott

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult
Series: Sisters of Fate, book 1

Right now, the trilogy is tentatively titled Sisters of Fate. These are Norse YA paranormal romances featuring triplets who sacrifice everything to help stop the end of the world–Ragnarok–while knowing one of them is fated to die. Raven, Coral and Kat carry the souls of norns and each story is told simultaneously from each sister after they have to split up.

It’s wonderful how more and more books are doing Norse mythology. So far none of them have really captured my book heart. But here’s hoping for Sisters of Fate!
