Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

This week's WoW isn't released until July 1st! How will I ever wait that terribly long???

Other by Karen Kincy
(No cover image yet...)
Summary from Karen's website:
"I can’t last much longer. It’s been one week, three days, and I forget how many hours.

My belly cramps, and I curl on my bed, staring out at the stars. A delicious breeze glides through my window and cools my sweaty forehead. The air smells of summer–mowed grass, recent rain, lingering barbecue–and tempts me more than I want to admit. Shards of moonlight and shadow shift on the wall. I clench my teeth and toes and try to ride out the pain. My bedroom drifts counterclockwise, and I shut my eyes.

It can’t be good for me, not shapeshifting.

Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.

When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive."

This book sounds so, so amazing! It has romance, werewolves, a sexy Japanese fox spirit. Can a reader really ask for more?? I didn't think so!


  1. It does sound good. Japanese fox-spirit like in LJ Smith's The Awakening?

  2. Thanks so much for the WoW! I should be getting a cover for OTHER within the next one-two months.


  3. This does sound like a good book - off to add it to my read list :)


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
