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:
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop (The Others #4)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Anticipated Publication Date: March 11, 2016

If you’ve been following along here for a while, then you probably know all about my love for Anne Bishop’s urban fantasy series The Others. When I saw that the cover had been revealed for the fourth book – along with an excerpt – on USA Today I was over the moon. I love that these covers are a) consistent b) reflect Meg and c) always have Meg completely clothed. No leather pants and katanas for Meg!
I’m beyond excited for this one – we’re talking slavering territory, here.
