Waiting on Wednesday: Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

I saw this book over at The Story Siren and fell in love with the cover! PLUS! Don’t forget that today’s your last change to win a copy of Divergent by Veronica Roth!

Title & Author: Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

Genre: YA- Fantasy

Publication Date: November 1, 2011

Description: “The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart’s latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing…

Jonathan Denbury’s soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.”

Why I’m Stoked: The description had me at “The Picture of Dorian Grey meets Pride and Prejudice.” Who knew romance and creepiness could blend so well together!

What are your WoW picks?
