is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

A few days ago, I just finished the first volume of this new trilogy by German author Anna Benning. Dark Sigils is an Urban-Fantasy story with two worlds in it. One world is the one the protagonist Rayne was born into, and the other one she can see hanging in the skies, like a mirror.

I like Anna Benning's sort of fantasy. Although sometimes I can´t get rid of the feeling that I´ve already read that scene here or this one there. I just can´t put a finger on it. So, with every new book, she gets published, I hope that there will be something completely new in it. Maybe this one is the one.

In desperation, Rayne sees only one option: she joins the rebels to get to the mysterious eighth Dark Sigil. Not only does she have to face an unknown adversary, but also Adam himself. For he knows the darkness that will take hold of the world if the sigil-bearers defy their fate...

    1. I hope it will be a read with some tension between the pages. The end of the first book promised me that...

  2. I hope it is new and fresh and you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it!

  3. This sounds like an interesting premise. I'm assuming it's translated, which makes it appealing on another level. Hope it meets your expectations.
