Waiting on Wednesday: Unbreakable by Kami Garcia

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Raina's pick this week:

by Kami Garcia
Legion #1
Expected publication: October 1st 2013 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Genre: Young Adult Urban Fantasy Suspense

Supernatural meets The Da Vinci Code in this action-packed paranormal thriller, the first book in a new series from New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia.

I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.

When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.

Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.

Suspense, romance, and the paranormal meet in this chilling urban fantasy, the first book in a new series from Kami Garcia, bestselling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures  novels.

Why I'm waiting:
Um, Supernatural  meets The Da Vinci Code. Need I really say more? I normally don't like book comparisons, but this one did its job. It pulled me in and had my fingers fiercely hitting "Want to Read," "wish-list," "cannot-wait," and every other critical shelf. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I haven't read Beautiful Creatures. *shrugs* I'm curious about it, but not desperate. For this book, I am. Ghosts, chilling suspense, some romance? *both hands in the air* Give meee!

  2. It reminds me of 'The Great and Terrible Beauty' by Libba Bray. And since I liked that one I think I might like this one too!

    My WoW!

  3. I am super curious about this book! I hope it makes for an interesting read. :) Great pick!

  4. I'm excited for this one, too, although I have to admit I'm kind of weary. I tried to read Beautiful Creatures a couple of times but just couldn't get into it. The synopsis for this does sound awesome, so I'm hoping I like it more. Great pick!
