Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcase upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting for the highly anticipated (I love this series) 6th book of the Allie Beckstrom Series by Devon Monk. As I decided this is the book I would write about I just realized that it will be released on April 5, 2011. Yay! I'm so excited now ;). Anyhoo, my wonderful friend (Heather)introduced this series to me last year and I'm so glad she did. Ms. Monk is a very talented writer and the world she built in this series is so intricately woven that it's unlike any other world I've read about. As usual I hate ruining any series by giving you a synopsis of the book I'm waiting for; so I'll leave you with the synopsis of the first book Magic to the Bone.
Anxiously awaiting release of Magic on the Hunt (Allie Beckstrom #6)
In order from Book 1-6:

But when she finds a boy dying from a magical Offload that has her father’s signature all over it, Allie is thrown back into his world of black magic. And the forces she calls on in her quest for the truth will make her capable of things that some will do anything to control…
