Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:

Banishing the DarkTitle: Banishing the Dark (Arcadia Bell #4)


Author: Jenn Bennett

Publisher: Pocket Books

Anticipated Publication Date: May 27th 2014

The fourth and final installment of a “riveting” (RT Book reviews) urban fantasy series about a renegade mage and the demons who love her.

Complicated does not begin to describe Arcadia Bell’s life right now: unnatural magical power, another brush with death, and a murderous mother who’s not only overbearing but determined to take permanent possession of Cady’s body. Forced to delve deep into the mystery surrounding her own birth, Cady must uncover which evil spell her parents cast during her conception…and how to reverse it. Fast.

As she and her lover Lon embark on a dangerous journey through her magical past, Lon’s teenage son Jupe sneaks off for his own investigation. Each family secret they uncover is darker than the last, and Cady, who has worn many identities—Moonchild, mage, fugitive—is about to add one more to the list.

Reading this plot synopsis makes me feel mixed emotions: anticipation and excitement about where the story is going and sadness that we’ll be saying goodbye to Cady, Lon, Jupe, and the rest of the gang. I’m hoping that certain events will come to pass in this final installment in the Arcadia Bell series, but no matter what happens I’m sure I’ll love it. Jenn Bennett is basically my queen.
