Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Rex by Rita Stradling. Earlier this year I read and loved Henchgirl, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that the sequel was being released so soon! Usually you have to wait for feels like forever! What I loved about the first novel was its mix of mythical creatures (dragons, vampires), a totally kickass female heroine and the interesting Hawaii-like world. I really want to find out what will happen next! Come on October 11th! 🙂
Synopsis: In seventeen year old Dakota Kekoa’s line of work, a job can go bad in a split second.
And when a job goes bad, people die.
Suspended from working as a tax collector in her draconic family’s protection racket, Dakota is assigned a secret mission from her grandfather. A foreign queen has offered a grave insult to Dakota’s grandfather by running a vampire dinner cruise off the coast of the Mabiian Islands, and his retribution must be swift.
Yet, when Dakota infiltrates the ship ‘Crimson Sunset’, nothing is at it seems. In a split second, not only is Dakota in deathly peril, all of New Anglo is on the road to war.
