“Waiting On” Wedneday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.
Not a YA pick this week, but Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series is one I follow faithfully (even if I think the early books were a lot better, though I did think the last one was getting back to the early roots), and I’m so excited to see the next book being released in February!
When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her re-animate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn’t the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs. Bennington’s grave would not be the lovely Mrs. Bennington. Not really. And not for long.
