"Waiting on" Wednesday: This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW pick this week is:

This Wicked Game
Title: This Wicked Game
Author: Michelle Zink
Publisher: Dial (Penguin Teen)
Publication Date: November 14th 2013
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
ISBN13: 9780399164224


Blurb:
Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

I LOVED Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters series, and I am super curious to see how she tackles the creepy world of voodoo. 

Link me up to your WoW pick this week, and I will be sure to stop by!
