[Meme] Waiting On Wednesday: Archon

 I have decided to work in another meme on my blog here. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Now that I have more access to ARCs and catalogs I have more insight into what is coming out soon that is exciting and fresh. And my goal is to share that with you!

So for this, my first week, I give to you the following:


Title: Archon: The Books of Raziel
Author: Sabrina Benulis
Publisher: HarperCollinsCanada, Harper Voyager
Publication Date: December 14, 2011

Synopsis:
Angela Mathers is plagued by visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Newly released from a mental institution where she was locked away for two years, she hopes that her time at the Vatican’s university, the West Wood Academy, will give her a chance at a normal life. Unlike ordinary humans, Angela is a blood head — a freak, a monster, the possible fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy of overwhelming death and destruction. Only in Luz, the Vatican’s wondrous enclave, are blood heads accepted and encouraged to discover what kind of powers or special abilities they might possess.

But within West Wood, a secret coven plots, and demons and angels roam the streets searching for the key to open Raziel’s book — a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some are determined to destroy Raziel, while others, like the beautiful Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, wish to free him. And when the Archon — the human chosen to possess the spirit of a dead angel — rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to Heaven and Hell — and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

I don't know about you...but I find that cover stunning! And the whole premise of the book just gives me shivers. I cannot wait to get a copy of this book and devour it!

What book are you waiting for right now?

  1. hmm... I have mixed feelings. The cover is both beautiful and a little creepy at the same time. I like the idea of the book but it reminds me of another book, I just can't remember which one.

  2. Thanks Petra!

    Flashlight - I like that it's kind of creepy, of course that is my thing. It does kind of remind me of the cover for Anna Dressed in Blood, was that what you were thinking?
