Waiting On Wednesday: Fair Game (Patricia Briggs) & Born Wicked (Jessica Spotswood)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

So I have to picks to you guys this week, one "adult" book and one YA title. Both are going to be awesome.. I just know it! 



Book: Fair Game (Alpha & Omega #3) by Patricia Briggs
Previous Books in the Series: On the Prowl - Anthology (#0.5), Cry Wolf (#1), Hunting Ground (#2)
Release Date: February 2nd, 2012  
Genre:  Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Orbit
Description: When the FBI request a pack consultant on a serial killer case they're following in Boston, Anna and Charles are sent in. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves – all of them were.

Someone is targeting their kind. And if Charles and Anna can't get to the bottom of this mystery, they may be next...


Hot Damn! That's what I'm talking about. When I read that the 3rd book in the Alpha & Omega series was going to be pushed back (it was originally supposed to drop this fall), I nearly cried. Now we've got an official release date, a name, a description and a cover! Is it February yet?



Book: Born Wicked (Cahill Witch Chronicles #1) by Jessica Spotswood
Release Date: February 7th, 2012  
Genre: Young Adult / Urban Fantasy

Publisher:G.P. Putman's Sons Books For Young Readers
Description: Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?

I LOVE witches. The storyline sounds awesome and the cover is ever so lovely. I don't know what else you people want.
