Waiting On Wednesday (#22)

"Waiting On" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

Silver by Talia Vance

Expected publication: September 8th 2012  by Flux 
An Irish heritage, Celtic myth, and deadly beauty 

In eighth grade, Brianna did something so dreadful she was suspended and homeschooled. No one could explain what happened that night . . . except Brianna’s Irish grandmother, who gave her a silver charm bracelet and told her to wear it until she turned seventeen. Ever since she slipped it on, Brianna has felt like she’s invisible. People stare right past her as if she doesn’t exist. And that includes Blake Williams, the one boy she can’t resist. 

But everything changes in one frozen, silver moment when Blake sees her—and recognizes what she’s been hiding. Brianna is descended from Danu, the legendary Bandia of Celtic myth. Yet before she can fully understand who or what she is, Brianna accidentally binds her soul to Blake—whose tribe has spent the last thousand years hunting Danu’s descendants to protect humanity.
This book had me at Celtic myths and Irish heritage. I care not for the deadly beauty, but the two other "ingredients" are absolutely wicked awesome! I can't resist.. can you??

What's your WOW this week? Leave me a linky, I'll drop by!
