Waiting on Wednesday #15

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.  Head on over there to take part or to check out all the other fabulous books that people are looking forward to reading! 
Dark Heart Rising by Lee Monroe
Published by Hodder Children's Books on 2nd June 2011

Jane and Luca's story continues ...but not quite as they had planned. When challenges and threats from the immortal world of Nissilum rip the young lovers apart, Jane is bereft. Without Luca's dancing green eyes, and gentle smile, Jane feels lost, sad and alone. But then a trip to Paris with her grandmother thrusts her in the path of the amiable Soren - a kindred spirit who may be just the distraction she needs ...Meanwhile in Nissilum, Luca struggles with the loyalties and expectations that come with being a part of the immortal world. A world that is about to be shaken at its very core: rumblings of mounting unrest are spreading, and with rumours of an angel rebellion growing no creature is safe -- especially not a mortal girl who has fallen in love with a wolf boy...

I've just finished reading 'Dark Heart Forever' by Lee Monroe which I really enjoyed - review to follow soon.  I didn't realise when I picked it up that it wasn't a standalone novel but the ending set things up nicely for the sequel which I'm looking forward to.  The cover is very pretty too, although it reminds me a little bit of Lauren Kate's Fallen series. 


  1. The cover is simply full of motion (and emotion). I have to add the first book to my TBR list along with this one. Thank you for the heads-up. :)

  2. This cover is stunning & the summary sounds really interesting!

  3. The cover is really pretty. It makes me want to run out and find the first book. This is the first time I've heard of it.


Thank you for leaving me a comment. I love reading them!
