Waiting on Wednesday: DARKER STILL


The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week I've chosen a book that some of you may not have heard of (which is the point of this meme, right?) but one that I'm sure you'll enjoy. I had the pleasure of meeting the author at ALA this year and she is super nice and really funny! So please, check out...



Darker Still
By Leanna Renee Heiber
Pub date 11/1/2011

product description from goodreads.com



The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart's latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing...

Jonathan Denbury's soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.


I must say that I've never much been interested in historical fiction, paranormal or no. But after reading this blurb (and after meeting Leanna herself), I honestly can't wait to read this one! Even though I was able to snag an ARC from ALA (a signed one at that!), I still can't wait until the actual book comes out!
