Waiting on Wednesday (17)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which bloggers can spotlight upcoming releases. This week I am waiting on is Darkness Descending by Devyn Quinn. I recently discovered this book and while I'm not a fan of the cover, the summary sounds great!

(Goodreads) Summary:

The first seal has been broken, signaling the end of days. Fallen angels in the form of vampires are infecting humans one by one, creating an army fit for Armageddon. Of the few who survive the infection, one stands alone above all others…
For one year, Jesse Burke has been suppressing the beast within, driven by vengeance to destroy the vampiric fallen angels terrorizing New Orleans. But a war of biblical proportions is too much for one girl to handle, and she must turn to slayer Maddox deValois for training, though it threatens her fiercely-guarded independence. But the sinister demon Queen Amonate is doing everything in her power to lure Jesse to her side to fulfill her destiny as the mother of the devil’s child.
Before this war is over, everyone will learn that hell hath no fury like a woman possessed…

Darkness Descending hits stores on August 2nd 2011. What are you waiting on?

  1. I'm not crazy about the cover, either, but I love end of the world books! I'll definitely have to keep an eye out for this one.

  2. I haven't heard about this one before! The cover isn't flash, like you mentioned, so hopefully people can weed out the fact it has a great story without judging the cover first!

    Check out my WOW this week!

  3. I love books set in New Orleans, too, and that fact has only increased since I visited there. The cover is par for the course with UF these days. I'd say it's lucky the cover model is wearing jeans instead of leather pants.

  6. Already on my wishlist, great pick! I'm half and half on the cover. I love the blues and the spiderweb she's got going on but there's something off about her face, her knife looks silly and I'm not a fan of the angel statue.

    My WoW is here.
