I'm waiting for:
(The Legion, #1)
By: Kami Garcia
Release Date: October 1st, 2013
Genre(s): YA Paranormal/Fantasy
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 am I waiting?
Paranormal Fantasy is a genre I always enjoy reading and the story sounds pretty decent. As far as Kami Garcia's writing goes Beautiful Creatures is a series I've not yet read but I really want to. I'm confident that her work will speak for itself and be enjoyable. Also the fact that it sounds just a little like the Supernatural TV show plot just slightly twisted with a female lead and a younger group, how could I not want to read it! Two brothers who hunt ghosts that save Kennedy and how the one pulling the strings is of course a demon, and then there's the one brother being named Jared...hmm! Sounds very intriguing indeed! Purely coincidental or not I'm looking forward to this one. Perhaps I may just being reading too much into it with the Supernatural similarities ;)
