Waiting on Wednesday 08/20/14
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
This is sort of a departure from what I usually read, arguably more Paranormal Romance than your straight up Urban Fantasy, but still. After all, I look back and see that I enjoyed the Fever books for so much more than just the romance (in truth, Mac and Barrons pissed me off to no end).
Anyway, Burned is actually the second book of a spin-off series that started after the conclusion of those Fever books, focusing on the spunky and foul-mouthed teen Dani “Mega” O’Malley. The ups and downs I’ve experienced with some of these characters notwithstanding, I can’t deny I’ve also become quite invested after spending six books reading about them. Isn’t that always the case?
Now, despite the protagonist’s age (14, in case you’re wondering), these Dani books are most definitely NOT Young Adult. And to tell the truth, some of the encounters between her and the much older men in her life made me feel all kinds of dirty and wrong when I was reading Iced! I’ve heard said that Moning might be jumping forward in time for Burned and making Dani older in this second book, which would make a lot of sense, but so far I haven’t seen anything to confirm that. For the most part, I have not actually heard much about Burned at all. Maybe the book description just isn’t ready yet, or maybe the publisher and author are keeping their cards close to their chest, but either way, I’m soooo curious about where Dani’s story will go.
And I also couldn’t find much more than the following blurb on Goodreads. Still, that’s one stunning cover.
“MacKayla Lane and Dani “Mega” O’Malley are back with a vengeance in Burned, the seventh novel in the blockbuster Fever series from #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Karen Marie Moning.”
