Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s book:

25843018Title: Devils and Thieves
Author: Jennifer Rush
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: October 3, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads): Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called “kindled,” and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn’t help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.

When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumour begins spreading that someone is practising forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.

Thoughts:

It has been so long since I’ve read a fantasy, and an urban fantasy is something I’ve read even fewer of. I am intrigued by the idea of a magic community in a modern setting, and the motorcycle gang is also something I don’t see too often. This book seems like the perfect read for the Halloween season, and I can’t wait to pick it up this fall!
