Waiting on Wednesday [54] - Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski

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

Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski
Expected Publication Date: October 16th, 2012
Publisher: FSG
Page Count: 416 pages
The Shadow Society
Darcy Jones doesn’t remember anything before the day she was abandoned as a child outside a Chicago firehouse. She has never really belonged anywhere—but she couldn’t have guessed that she comes from an alternate world where the Great Chicago Fire didn’t happen and deadly creatures called Shades terrorize the human population.

Memories begin to haunt Darcy when a new boy arrives at her high school, and he makes her feel both desire and desired in a way she hadn’t thought possible. But Conn’s interest in her is confusing. It doesn’t line up with the way he first looked at her.

As if she were his enemy.

When Conn betrays Darcy, she realizes that she can’t rely on anything—not herself, not the laws of nature, and certainly not him. Darcy decides to infiltrate the Shadow Society and uncover the Shades’ latest terrorist plot. What she finds out will change her world forever . . .

In this smart, compulsively readable novel, master storyteller Marie Rutkoski has crafted an utterly original world, characters you won’t soon forget, and a tale full of intrigue and suspense.
Why I Can't Wait: Honestly? I don't really know.... There's something about it that just calls to me, you know?! It doesn't sound like something I've ever read before and I'm pretty sure it'll be a refreshing change from what I've been reading lately.

  29. This does sounds very interesting... I really like books about alternate realities/time lines :) And a dangerous enemy love interest? Well, it wouldn't be a paranormal romance without someone wanting to do the heroine in, eh? ;) Thanks for visiting my WoW!
