Waiting on Wednesday (#1)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So for our first "can't-wait-to-read" selection which is due for release in the UK in November is:

London, December 1871

Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.

When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.

In a dazzling debut that takes you from the gritty slums of Victorian London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld, you won’t want to miss this thrilling tale of mystery, adventure and romance.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Note: As some of you will notice, there should normally be My Book Boyfriend here, but Jess has ran out of book boyfriends, until she reads more books, so this is in it's place for today.

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday. :D This is such a fun meme. Even though it usually doesn't have hot guys like your usual Wednesday posts have. :D
The Faerie Ring's on my to-read list, too. Sounds like a really good book. :)

I'm interested in this book too. I am waiting on ANGEL OF DARKNESS by Cynthia Eden.

I'm waiting for this one too - but maybe a little longer than release day as it's sooooo expensive compared to the average hardcover book. I think I'll be waiting until the price has come down a bit!

Great choice! I'm usually not drawn to historicals, but really want to read this. The story sounds great and it's set in London, one of my favourite places to visit.
