Waiting on Wednesday 5/4: Before the Witches



“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

For this week’s post, I chose Before the Witches by Karina Cooper.

In America, they didn’t care about witches. But all that was about to change.

Katya Zhuvova fled a country that feared her gifts, but her escape to Seattle left her at the mercy of a ruthless man. With no one left to turn to, Katya hatches a desperate escape plan. Undercover Detective Nigel Ferris is determined to bring down a prostitution ring, whatever the cost. In order to the get answers he needs, he attempts to win the trust of one of the prostitutes involved—but one look at the deceptively sultry Katya and the cool, objective cop disappears. Before either can put their plans into place, Mother Nature shrugs: a cataclysm rocks Seattle, and life is turned upside down.

Brought together by chance, Nigel and Katya are in the fight for their lives. Surrounded by death and fear, shattered by immeasurable loss, they have only a bond forged in fire to cling to as they struggle to survive in a world gone straight to hell.

Although I don’t read that many paranormals, my recent favorites have been about witches, such as 666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce. I’ve also started A Discovery of Witches but am intimidated by the length!

What about you? If you read paranormals do you have a favorite theme?

  1. Never heard of it before 🙂

    My WOW.

  2. I don’t have a specific type of paranormal romance that I like. I read a little bit of everything. The shapeshifters and vampires seem to outnumber the witches, though, so I might have to check this one out.

    Avon Impulse…? Is that the new digital part of Avon? I haven’t read anything from that imprint yet.
