What’s Next? (7)

What's Next? Hosted by IceyBooks

Hi everyone! Welcome to the another week of What’s Next?! Click here to read more about the meme and be sure to link up your posts below.

Here are a few I have to (or want to!) read soon. So. Which first?

For Mab Prowd, the practice of blood magic is as natural as breathing. It’s all she’s ever known. Growing up on an isolated farm in Kansas with other practitioners may have kept her from making friends her own age, but it has also given her a sense of purpose—she’s connected to the land and protective of the magic. And she is able to practice it proudly and happily out in the open with only the crows as her companions. Mab will do anything to keep the ancient practice alive and guard its secrets.

But one morning while she is working out a particularly tricky spell she encounters Will, a local boy who is trying to exorcise some mundane personal demons. He experiences Mab’s magic in a way his mind cannot comprehend and is all too happy to end their chance meeting. But secrets that were kept from Mab by the earlier generations of blood magicians have come home to roost. And she and Will are drawn back together, time again by this dangerous force looking to break free from the earth and reclaim its own dark power.

Evie’s paranormal past keeps coming back to haunt her. A new director at the International Paranormal Containment Agency wants to drag her back to headquarters. The Dark Faerie Queen is torturing humans in her poisonous realm. And supernatural creatures keep insisting that Evie is the only one who can save them from a mysterious, perilous fate.

The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie’s hands.

So much for normal.

The purest intentions can stir up the darkest obsessions.

In this prequel to Mary Shelley’s gothic classic, Frankenstein, 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein begins a dark journey that will change his life forever. Victor’s twin, Konrad, has fallen ill, and no doctor is able to cure him. Unwilling to give up on his brother, Victor enlists his beautiful cousin Elizabeth and best friend Henry on a treacherous search for the ingredients to create the forbidden Elixir of Life. Impossible odds, dangerous alchemy and a bitter love triangle threaten their quest at every turn.

Victor knows he must not fail. But his success depends on how far he is willing to push the boundaries of nature, science, and love—and how much he is willing to sacrifice.

Which should I read first??

    You have Endlessly already?? You're SO lucky, Hafsah! I absolutely ADORE the Paranormalcy series because Evie is so spunky, Lend is so sweet, and the world is just so fun to read about. As soon as you do pick it up, I would love to read your review for it — I'm crossing my fingers that it's as awesome as the first two! :)

    Whatever you choose to read, I really hope you enjoy it! I've heard This Dark Endeavor is a really great read too ;) <3

    I'm currently reading Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, so I'm going to have to say Endlessly by Kiersten White.

    I'm seeing a pattern in Endlessly, but as I haven't read the first, my vote goes elsewhere – THIS DARK ENDEAVOR. It's freaking amazing. Totally unique. Love the writing, the characters – wow! :)

    I've been wanting to read This Dark Endeavor for a while now but it seems that I am in the minority. I haven't read Paranormalcy though.

    The Dark Endeavor gets my vote. I'm not exactly amped about Blood Keeper and know nothing about the Paranormalcy series.
