Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at @Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

 thrilling new urban fantasy filled with magic and motorcycle gangs from Jennifer Rush, author of the Altered saga–perfect for fans of Beautiful Creatures.

Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called “kindled,” and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn’t help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.

When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all.

No idea how Devils & Thieves managed to slip from under my radar but it did & so now I sit and wait til release day lol. A motorcycle crew that just so happen to wield magic? YES PLEASE! Set in a quiet New York town? aka my home city? YES PLEASE! threat of forbidden magic aka black magic? MHMMM, I’LL TAKE THAT! a main protagonist with untapped/unknown magic of her own? MY KRYPTONITE! As a big fan of the AMC tv series Sons of Anarchy, this book is practically shouting for me to read it & I shall heed the call 😉

Honestly, they had me atthrilling new urban fantasy filled with magic and motorcycle gangs”  I’m hoping to love this 1st installment because I’ve been missing Sons of Anarchy something bad & the thought of those guys having magic at their disposal is a scary yet humorous thought. I’d welcome this new series (if I enjoy the 1st book) to fill the void SOA left in my little ❤ 😉

Any readers out there who have read Jennifer’s Altered series? I’m curious about her writing style & very excited to read Devils & Thieves *insert excited emoji*

  3. Great pick for this week Lilly, this sounds like a really interesting book and now I’ve read the blurb thanks to your WoW post I’ve definitely added this one to my to-read list! 😀 I think I have read some of Jennifer Rush’s Altered series, I don’t remember much so it likely wasn’t a stand out book for me but at the same time it means I didn’t have any issues with the plot or the writing either. I tend to only clearly remember the really good and the really bad. 🙂

    1. Nice Beth! I’m very excited for this title. Although I’ve never read Jennifers other series, i did check it out on Goodreads & saw that it had a high # of high ratings lol. I’m the same, only remember the terrible & the great which makes sense given the amount of books we read lol 🙂

      1. Maybe if you enjoy this one you can get started on her other series then. If it has a high number of high ratings it must be pretty good right?
        Ha, yeah when you read a hundred books a year on average you just can’t remember them all can you! 🙂

  4. Okay, this sounds fantastic. I haven’t heard of it until now, either! But it’s got so many good things going for it. A motorcycle gang with magical powers?? Count me in. I haven’t watched Sons of Anararchy but this is making me want to haha. Great pick, Lilly! Thanks for bringing it to my attention 😀

  5. I am honestly not sure how I feel about this one haha. I don’t think I have read much urban fantasy though. Maybe I need to change that? I will wait for you and Gretchen to clue me in. *Goes to hide in corner because I have yet to start SOA*
