“Waiting On” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy’s mom decides they need to take a break.
Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who’s always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.
Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?
Rachel Hawkins’ delightful spin-off brings the same wit and charm as the New York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance!
You do not know how excited I am about this new series from Rachel Hawkins. I’ve said this plenty of times, but Rachel Hawkins’ Hex Hall series is what brought me back into the young adult genre. The new spin-off series is focused on Izzy Brannick, Sophie Mercer’s cousin! She was such a spitfire in Spellbound. I am a big fan of awesome witty banters between the characters (ie. Sophie Mercer + Archer Cross), and I’m pretty sure there will be plenty of it in this new book. I cannot wait to get my hands on this series.
What books are you waiting for on this Wednesday?
