Waiting on Wednesday (24)--Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda

Release Date: September 1, 2009 from Hyperion CH


As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilquis SanGreal grew up knowing she wasn't normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her time training as a soldier in her order's ancient battle against the Unholy.

Billi's cloistered life is blasted apart when her childhood friend, Kay, returns from Jerusalem, gorgeous and with a dangerous chip on his shoulder. He's ready to reclaim his place in Billi's life, but she's met someone new: amber-eyed Michael, who seems to understand her like no one else, effortlessly claiming a stake in her heart.

But the Templars are called to duty before Billi can enjoy the pleasant new twist to her life. One of the order's ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure that the Templars have protected for hundreds of years -- a cursed mirror powerful enough to kill all of London's firstborn. To save her city from catastrophe, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than any of the Templars could have imagined.

I've heard quite a bit about this book and everything I've heard just makes me want it more and more. It sounds like an incredible read and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Plus, I find the Knights Templar really fascinating. Let's just say, it's definitely on my wishlist.

Sorry this post is a little late today, but I was up 'til all hours seeing Harry Potter, which was amazing and dealing with some family sadness, which was not cool. I'm okay though and blogging through the sad; focusing on the good.

Can't wait to see what everyone else is waiting on. As always, Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

  5. sorry to hear you have had bad news. I have a week of sadness to, so know how you feel. I am glad the Harry Potter film was good.

    I do like the look of this and I have really enjoyed reading books about the Knights Templar. Have you read Ghost Chamber by Celia Rees which is based on the ghosts of the Knights Templar.

  6. That book sounds SO awesome! The Knights Templar interests me as well. I've been trying to get my mom to buy me an antique Knights Templar sword off of ebay for 2 years now...Haven't gotten anywhere. lol
