Waiting on Wednesday: A Temptation of Angels

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
Even angels make mistakes in this page-turning epic romance...

When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world's past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.

Release Date: March 20, 2012 

I'm honestly too excited to read this one for words!! I've been on this amazing angel-book streak lately and I just adored Michelle Zink's other series (The Prophecy of the Sisters), so both of those things together are enough to make me ECSTATIC to read this! :) 

And then I re-read that synopsis and I'm excited all over again!




  1. YES! I'm dying to read this book:) I only read the first Prophecy book of hers, but I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see what she does with angels. I'm on an angel kick lately too, and this one is one of my most anticipated for 2012:)

  2. I've never heard of this book but it makes it the second angel WoW pick I've seen today. I find the cover really intriguing and this bit definitely caught my eye "the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her." I can definitely see why you're excited to read it! Now I'm excited too, haha. Great pick, Mimi! :)

  3. I haven't read many books involving angels and planned to change that and am really looking forward to this :-)

    My WOW

  4. AHHHHHH, MIMI!!!!! I'm extremely, exponentially, and completely ecstatic for A Temptation of Angels now too! To be completely honest, I was never the biggest fan of the Prophecy of the Sisters series because it didn't have that EXCITEMENT factor I like it books. But AToA sounds mega-cool and I loooooove angel books too! (:
