Waiting On Wednesdat #91: The Lovely and the Lost, by Page Morgan

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

(The Dispossessed #2)
Hardcover, 368 pages
Delacorte Press
May 13, 2014
Fantasy, Gothic Fiction, Historical Fiction, Paranormal Romance, YA


Book Synopsis

The Lovely and the Lost finds the Waverly sisters in mortal danger and able to trust no one.
   Ingrid and Gabby Waverly moved to France expecting a quiet reprieve from London gossip, but the truth they face in their new home has a sharper--and deadlier--sting.
   Paris is plagued by an underworld of demons and gargoyles who all seem to want something from the Waverly girls. Saving Ingrid's twin, Grayson, from the fallen angel Axia nearly killed them. And they're still being hunted--only this time, demons aren't their only predators.
   Ingrid's blood is special: it bestows the power to command gargoyles. It's an ability no other human has, and in the wrong hands, it could be used to send her cursed guardian, Luc, and his fellow Dispossessed to extinction. There are those who will do anything to get Ingrid's blood--and they see no value in human life.
   The Alliance has vowed to protect the Waverlys, and a new gargoyle has been assigned to guard their abbey home alongside Luc. But no one can watch over Ingrid, Gabby, and Grayson all the time--which means the three must learn to fight for themselves.
   Because darkness follows the Waverlys. And sometimes darkness comes in the form you trust 
the most.

 Why am I waiting on this novel?

Although I haven't read the first one --
The Beautiful and the Cursed, I do own it, and
have every intention of reading it.
Hopefully, I'll be able to get move right from
the first one to the sequel, later on
this year, after I finish some previous 
blog tour commitments....
I've been wanting to dive into this story for 
quite some time now, since it has
the perfect mix of elements, I think, for a 
perfect journey into an exciting, highly 
imaginative world!
