Release Date: November 5, 2013
The Overview: Instead of the deadly force it once was, magic is now a useless novelty. But not for Shame Flynn and Terric Conley, “breakers” who have the gift for reverting magic back to its full-throttle power. In the magic-dense city of Portland, Oregon, keeping a low profile means keeping their gifts quiet. After three years of dealing with disgruntled magic users, Shame and Terric have had enough of politics, petty magic, and, frankly, each other. It’s time to call it quits.
When the government discovers the breakers’ secret—and its potential as a weapon—Shame and Terric suddenly become wanted men, the only ones who can stop the deadly gift from landing in the wrong hands. If only a pair of those wrong hands didn’t belong to a drop-dead-gorgeous assassin Shame is falling for as if it were the end of the world. And if he gets too close to her, it very well could be…
Hosted by Breaking the Spine, Wednesday is the day to daydream about future releases. Since I’ve already featured all of my top upcoming releases (The Fiery Heart, Champion, Allegiant to name a few) I thought this week I would focus on a book that I am reasonably sure I would be excited for if I were caught up in the series. I love what I’ve read of Monk’s Allie Beckstrom series, and the idea of a spinoff with of male protagonist has me very excited. Because it’s a spinoff, the rules of the world are already established, which means the author can jump right into the action of the story… it bodes well, I’m just saying.
