Waiting on Wednesday (10)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep which was released on May 29th, 2012.

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?

It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

This is a bit of an odd WoW for me.  First, this book is the third in a series and I haven't actually read the first two and second, it has already been released.  BUUUUTTTT I am still waiting because I won this as part of Goodreads First Reads! WOOOOOOOOO!  I got the notice over a month ago and have been anxiously awaiting it's arrival.  I don't want to start the other two books because I am sure by the time I finish the second one I will be ravenous for book 3 and will get even more irritated at the slow delivery.

On a related note, in the past month I have won 3 books (two Goodreads, one from a blog giveaway) and been promised 2 books from an author for review and I haven't received ANY OF THEM! I am beginning to think that someone at Canada Post is stealing my books! URGH!!!!
