Waiting on Wednesday.....Carnival of Souls

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

My pick this week is Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
In a city of daimons, the Carnival of Souls hosts a deadly competition. Once in a generation, every citizen can fight to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures—if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live. 
In our own world, Mallory knows that her father—and every other witch—fled the daimons’ city long ago. She trains to be lethal because it’s only a matter of time until the daimons catch up with them. 
While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City knows of her. There are plans there for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence that is the Carnival of Souls. 
From Melissa Marr, bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series, comes a brand-new tale of secrets, love, and the struggle to forge one’s own destiny.
This cover...SWOON! I love the cover. It's stunning. I am intrigued by the synopsis, the carnival and the competition itself. Very excited to get my hands on this one.

Expected release date - September 4, 2012


  1. This is my first time hearing about this book, but it sounds really interesting!

  2. I've never read anything by Melissa Marr before - faeries just don't appeal to me. But I have to admit, this carnival setting sounds pretty badass!
