Waiting On Wednesday #111: The Beautiful Ashes, by Jeaniene Frost

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 Beautiful Ashes
(Broken Destiny, #1)
Trade Paperback, 304 pages
Harlequin HQN
August 26, 2014
New Adult Fiction, Paranormal Romance, 
Urban Fantasy

Book Synopsis

In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate.

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her.

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between…

Why I'm waiting on this one!

This sure seems to have all the necessary
ingredients for a fascinating,
exciting, series!
Jeaniene Frost has a great reputation
as a bestselling writer of
paranormal romance and urban fantasy,
so I'm adding this novel
to my humongous TBR, right along
with the other Frost novels
I already own!

What do you think of my choice?
What fascinating book(s)
are you waiting on this week?
