Stacking the Shelves #5


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that makes it possible to share with other bookworms what books you added to your shelves physical or virtual during the week.

I became the happy owner of two e-books this week:


Author: Greer Macallister

Synopsis:
 
For the first female Pinkerton detective, respect is hard to come by. Danger, however, is not.

In the tumultuous years of the Civil War, the streets of Chicago offer a woman mostly danger and ruin-unless that woman is Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton detective and a desperate widow with a knack for manipulation.

Descending into undercover operations, Kate is able to infiltrate the seedy side of the city in ways her fellow detectives can't. She's a seductress, an exotic foreign medium, or a rich train passenger, all depending on the day and the robber, thief, or murderer she's been assigned to nab.

Inspired by the real story of Kate Warne, this spirited novel follows the detective's rise during one of the nation's greatest times of crisis, bringing to life a fiercely independent woman whose forgotten triumphs helped sway the fate of the country.

My prayers were answered and the publisher sent me the book at last... I was waiting for it eagerly as you know. Look out for my review on March 25!

Synopsis: Her forbidden secret will make her powerful… and hunted. In Marizza's world, magic is evil. Since her youth, her mother told her witches were wicked creatures who deserved imprisonment. The tyrannical acolytes sacrificed all users of magic to the almighty kraken. It was the life she knew, until one fateful day changed everything.

When young Marizza is attacked by the town bully, she defends herself with magical abilities she didn't even know she had. After the acolytes come looking for the next witch to sacrifice, Marizza is left with no choice but to flee. She must journey across the Sea of Tears, where she'll make a choice that could transform the lives of everyone she loves.

Witch's Sacrifice is the first book in the Witch's Trilogy, a young adult dark fantasy series featuring intricate world-building, memorable characters, chilling horror, and captivating romance.
 
 RELEASE THE KRAKEN! Witches and waterworld sounds like a good combination to me. Although with this book I'll break my resolution that I won't start another series until I finish at least one that I have already started. Well, apparently I suck at keeping resolutions, maybe I shouldn't make them in the first place, haha :)
