On My Wishlist (Feb. 27th, 2010)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City. It allows us to share the books we haven't bought yet but are waiting to be bought and devoured. (This post was inspired by the fab In My Mailbox by Kristi at The Story Siren).

Sins & Shadows by Lyn Benedict
This looks like a really great UF read - and has some fab quotes from both Carrie Vaughn and Kat Richardson on the cover!
Sylvie Lightner is no ordinary P.I. She specializes in cases involving the unusual, in a world where magic is real - and where death isn't the worst thing that can happen to you.

But when an employee is murdered in front of her, Sylvie has had enough. After years of confounding the dark forces of the Magicus Mundi, she's closing up shop - until a man claiming to be the God of Justice wants Sylvie to find his lost lover.

And he won't take no for an answer.

"Full of big adventure, big action, and weird magic."
- Carrie Vaughn

"Dark and fascinating."
- Kat Richardson

Spiral Hunt by Margaret Ronald
This one does not have the most inviting of covers - but seems to have a killer plot. Also, the Boston setting is brilliant - I am a big fan!
Some people have the Sight. Genevieve Scelan has the Scent.

They call her "Hound," and with her unique supernatural sense Evie can track nearly anything - lost keys, vanished family heirlooms . . . even missing people. And though she knows to stay out of the magical undercurrent that runs beneath Boston's historic streets, a midnight phone call from a long-vanished lover will destroy the careful boundaries she has drawn. Now, to pay a years-old debt, Evie must venture into the shadowy world that lies between myth and reality, where she will find betrayal, conspiracies, and revelations that will shatter all she believes about herself and the city she claims as home.

When the Hunt is on, the Hound must run . . .


  1. Hi there! I guess this is the first time that I came across your blog and I've to say that I LOVE your header so much =)

    To be honest, I've not read much of urban fantasy mainly because I don't know which author/book that I should start with. I wonder if you can suggest me w/ couple of books that you might find very interesting?

    The Bibliophile's Journal

  2. @Shy - Hey! Thanks so much! I am kinda in love with my header too... *stares*

    UF tends to be pretty dark - ok, really dark. I took a look at your goodreads and am going to email you a few suggestions! ♥

  3. I have both Wild Hunt and Spiral Hunt sitting on my desk! I hope to read them soon. Thanks for sharing your wishlist. :)

  4. I've not heard of either of those before but Sin and Shadows looks really good!

  5. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on The Spiral Hunt. Here's Mine
