Waiting on Wednesday: Blood Kin by M.J. Scott

>>Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine. This is the second installment of The Half-Light City series, of which the debut, Shadow Kin, I really liked (review). The main characters seem to have changed for this book, but it still looks pretty good. It's also a good example of gaslight fantasy.

Blood Kin by M.J. Scott
Publisher: Roc
Publication Date: June 5th, 2012

From Goodreads:

Imagine a city divided. A city where human and Fae magic rests uneasily next to the vampire Blood and the shapeshifting Beasts. A city where a fragile peace is brokered by a treaty that set the laws for all four races… a treaty that is faltering day by day. 

I didn’t plan on becoming a thief and a spy. But options are limited for the half-breed daughter of a Fae lord. My father abandoned me but at least I inherited some of his magic, and my skills with charms and glamours mean that few are as good at uncovering secrets others wish to hide. Right now the city has many secrets. And those who seek them pay so well… 

I never expected to stumble across a Templar Knight in my part of the city. Guy DuCaine is sworn to duty and honor and loyalty — all the things I’m not. I may have aroused more than his suspicion but he belongs to the Order and the human world. So when treachery and violence spill threaten both our kind, learning to trust each other might be the only thing that saves us. 

But even if a spy and a holy knight can work together, finding the key to peace is never going to be easy…


  1. I like that term - gaslight fantasy - and have to admit this sounds a bit more interesting than the usual urban fantasy. I'll check it out.

    Here's my WOW

  2. I've been meaning to read the fist book in this series-- I have it, just haven't gotten to it. Now I'm thinking I need to bump it up on the list.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great pick! This sounds really good. I haven't heard of this series yet but I will definitely have to check it out soon!

    Thanks for stopping by my post!
