Waiting on Wednesday: 8.19.09

Been a few weeks since I did one of these. The book I really wanted to featured doesn't have a cover out yet, so I'll substitute this one instead. You may recognize it from Monday's Contest Roundup.

Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda

About the Book (from Amazon.com): "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 love reading about the Templar knights. I blame National Treasure. Gee, everything in my life seems to relate to a Disney movie...

Devil's Kiss will be released on September 1 (a good day for publishing!) but you can currently pre-order your copy from Amazon.com:

Sounds interesting. I've never heard of it but I loved Natinol Treasure & The Knights Templar so I think I'll give it a shot.
