Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Mikayla doesn’t want much: just to rock out to her favorite band, become the next Kwiki Stop video gaming champion, and keep her Q-tip habit under control. What she does want is the sight of the sudden inexplicable dark auras around everyone to stop. Problem is, those auras are demons and Mikayla is the last trait holder with the power to ban them. Which is a total buzz kill.

To make matters worse, the town folk of Sulphur Springs don’t look the same, and her classmates are a little dark in the eyes. There are murders, suicides, reckless skinny-dipping, gratuitous use of Q-tips, and newfound powers that Mikayla must learn to control.

Her past becomes present when a shape-shifter tells her what her true identity is, and how to keep the demons of Hell from nipping at her Converse. Through him she’ll discover who to trust, who to kiss, and how valuable her abilities are to the right beings. Because the evils of Hell aren’t staying down without a fight.

Or without her soul.

First off, can we just talk about how absolutely amazing that cover is? I could stare at the full-sized image on Goodreads for hours. Not to mention that this just sounds like a fun, kickass paranormal novel. It seems like it's going to have some humor, and I love a book that doesn't take itself too seriously. I'm a little bummed though, because when I first saw this, I thought it was coming out at the end of March, but it's the end of May! I have to wait a full two months longer than I thought, but I hope it'll be worth the wait!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
