Waiting For Pay Day #2

Welcome to

Whether it's a new release or one that's been out for a while, come share the book you're desperate to read that has you impatiently waiting for Pay Day. Don't forget to include just why it has you so excited !!      (click title)

When I was thinking about what I wanted to share this week, a book came INSTANTLY to mind. I have wanted to buy this book for at least a good YEAR but seeing I can only buy it online, I kept getting distracted or running out of money. Every now and then I'd pull it up on Amazon and stroking the monitor gently whisper to the book that it wouldn't be too much longer until we could be together. I did this for a year. If you've seen my recent IMMB, you've seen I made the crazy decision to download the Kindle app on my Droid. So I'm scrolling through books and I pull up this book to find to my COMPLETE delight - Kindle sells the book for 0.99c !! I went from having to find $20 to just under a dollar. So no more waiting for pay day, I clicked on that button and FINALLY after a year me and my beloved book are together. Here's the book....

The War of Mists
Robert Fanney / Fantasy
Book #2 of Luthiel's Song series

She chose to die in her sister's place and yet she lived. Luthiel, just 15 years old, made a brave peace with the dreaded Vyrl of the Vale of Mists. Now she must face an army sent to destroy them. With her companions -- the werewolf Othalas, the dragon Melkion, the sorcerer Mithorden, a Vyrl named Ecthellien, and the elf Vaelros who would love her -- Luthiel races back to the angry faelands to beg forgiveness for monsters. Who, if any, will survive the journey? For the Vale is surrounded by the webs of Widdershae, and the only other path leads to the Red Moon -- where an ancient evil waits in the flames. Beyond the Vale, the home she left is not the same. Armies march for vengeance. Powers play their hands in a game of ages. In the sky something evil stirs. Rumors of a dark prophecy. Whispers of a "Blood Witch." And signs foretelling an ancient doom terrible enough to destroy worlds.

Ok here's my new Waiting For Pay Day. This book came out a few months ago and I seriously squealed in Barnes and Noble when I saw it. I picked it up, put it down, picked it up, carried it around the store, put it down. It's a $25 book and I already had a weeks worth of groceries in books in my basket so I had to make the EXTREMELY painful decision - the book or Halo. Back on the shelf my book went and I walked out of the store with Halo. Now I'm KICKING myself because Halo has yet to be read and I can almost guarantee my book would have been devoured in a few short days. Live and learn right? So here's my book *whispers to the book a humble apology for being swayed by book pressure*

The Reluctant Mage
Karen Miller / Fantasy
Book #3 in the Fisherman's Children series

Nine months have passed since Rafel disappeared in the expedition over the mountains. Deenie, now eighteen, starts having disturbing dreams about her brother. She comes to believe he's not dead after all, but is in trouble and needs her help. She enlists the aid of her friend Charis, and the girls hatch a plan to escape from Lur. They succeed and survive the hazardous journey round the coastline past the mountains. But to their dismay, they discover that the lands beyond Lur are blighted with lawlessness and chaos. The remnants of Morg's consciousness that survived his death splintered at his downfall and sought refuge in whatever bodies could be found to host them. Throughout their travels and adventures they get some answers about the other lost expeditions, and keep hearing about one fearsome mage whose stronghold is in the blighted near-mythical land of Dorana. Deenie knows this is her brother - and that Rafel is not only in danger, but has become dangerous. If he's not stopped he could become a threat to the whole world. Perhaps even another Morg.

Isn't kindle wonderful? I don't know how I ever lived without that little app! My hubby probably despises it though because I'm constantly on it adding stuff to my tbr! Such easy access! No making a trip to the store to see if they may or maynot have it! Sigh...I'm getting too excited again! My WOPD is at:
The Delusional Diaries

Ooops! I totally posted that twice I think. I can't see my linky-thing. SORRY!

I haven't even heard of your Fabulous find, but that is awesome!

I once had a book like that called Iceland. I wanted it soooo bad. The dumb thing was hard to find at the time for some reason. I was walking through borders, find an extra coupon on the floor AND see ONE COPY sitting on the shelf. It was fate!

I absolutely adore the sound of War of Mists! Eep! :)

Angela said...
