Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet.
NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account.
This week-Orlando A Sanchez
He’s not the hero you want. He’s the monster you need.
When a new strain of the deadly drug, Redrum creates UV resistant vampires, the streets of New York City are flooded with the mindless creatures searching for blood—human blood. The NYTF and Dark Council refuse to deal with menace and contact the Night Wardens expecting results. What they get is a dark mage with nothing to lose.
Now Grey Stryder-a dying dark mage and rogue Night Warden must join Koda, a short tempered, trigger-happy assassin to clean the streets of New York, find the source of Redrum, and keep humanity off the menu, before it’s too late.
Together they will be become the heroes the city needs-but no one wants.
I've already bought the first book in the Tombyards and Butterflies series so this was certainly on my radar, even though I haven't read the author yet. It came out on January 8th so I'll grab it or a sample at some point.
