Waiting on Wednesday – 03/23/11

High in their mountain covens, red witches pray to the Goddess, protecting the Witchlands by throwing the bones and foretelling the future.
It’s all a fake.
At least, that’s what Ryder thinks. He doubts the witches really deserve their tithes—one quarter of all the crops his village can produce. And even if they can predict the future, what danger is there to foretell, now that his people’s old enemy, the Baen, has been defeated?
But when a terrifying new magic threatens both his village and the coven, Ryder must confront the beautiful and silent witch who holds all the secrets. Everything he’s ever believed about witches, the Baen, magic and about himself will change, when he discovers that the prophecies he’s always scorned—
Are about him.

Once you've been chosen,
what step can you take...?

Seventeen-year-old Sara's dream of becoming a star ballerina is challenged when she falls for Remington, an older choreographer. Instead of success onstage, she becomes Rem's muse, which is a future she never considered--and one that threatens to break her heart.

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her overprotective mom, by the hunky son of the police officer who got her father killed, and by the eerie voices which she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Turns out the voices are demons - the Biblical kind, not the Buffy kind - and Bridget possesses the rare ability to banish them.
San Francisco's senior exorcist and his newly assigned partner from the Vatican enlist Bridget's help with increasingly bizarre and dangerous cases of demonic possession. But when one of Bridget's oldest friends turns up dead in a ritualistic sacrifice that mirrors her father's murder, Bridget realizes she can't trust anyone. An interview with her father's murderer reveals a link between Bridget and the Emim: a race of part-demons intent on raising their forefathers to the earth in human form. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the Emim's plan before someone else close to her winds up dead, or worse - the human vessel for a Demon King.

So many great reads. My bookshelf is groaning at the thought of them. ;)

Jenny N. said...

Possess sounds a bit too scary for me but I do like the sound of Audition and Wichlanders.

Blodeuedd said...

I really like the sound of that first book

lulilut said...

Four great choices, WITCHLANDERS especially. I love the cover art.

I saw the Mephisto Covenant last week and added it to my list (seriously gorgeous cover and interesting synopsis!!). I also saw audition last week, but it didn't really strike me as much as I hoped. The cover of Possess creeps me out a lot; it's a good reflection of that synopsis. And I'd never heard of Witchlanders, but that sounds fascinating. I like that it's a male protagonist. There are definitely not enough of those in YA. You've got quite a selection there!

Liz @ Cleverly Inked said...

my goodness some good ones.

Lola said...

You have some great choices here! Looking forward to Wichlanders especially! :)

Orchid said...

Great picks! They all sound so good, especially Witchlanders, The Mephisto Covenant, and Possess. ^_^
