Waiting on Wednesday [44]



from us.macmillan.com:


Gabriel is a New York City college kid who loves to bury his nose in books, looking up stories of long-dead cultures, lost languages, and forgotten legends. He never imagined one of those legends would come looking for him—until a tough-talking girl named De Mona Sanchez thrusts an ancient weapon into his hands...and recruits Gabriel in a dark epic war he was born to fight.

Banished centuries ago by warrior knights, a demonic army is storming through a dimensional rift into our world. Stalkers are prowling the streets. Corpses are rising up to fight. And Gabriel—a descendant of one of the original warriors—has no choice but to drop his textbooks and start kicking demon butt alongside his new friend De Mona…who has a few secrets of her own. If Gabriel fails, humanity loses. If war is hell, this is hell on earth…

Reason: My top reason is that trident! I mean come on - give me a trident over a sword anyday. Seriously, how many trident weilding characters have you seen recently??...go on...I'll let you think about it... Slim to none right? That along with the blurb is enough to get me to sign up for Club DARK STORM =D I'd totally drop out of school to save the world... add in that trident and I would do it all with a smile too!

Cover Discussion: You know what? I like it! Granted it's a little too fake for me, as in cartoonish, but it has definitely grown on me since I first saw it.



Dark Storm has already been released (February 2nd)


** I apologize for that, didn't notice it until after I wrote this fantastic, trident-filled post, so just bear with me for this week =)

Thanks for posting about this :) I've added it to my wishlist. I really like the cover, I don't mind the cartoonish'ness of it.

The trident made me think of Anchorman, when Brick says: "Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident."

Nice pick. It was a good start to a new series. I'm curious to read more. I had to review it for Romantic Times a few months back. :)

I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:
