Waiting on Wednesday

Other by Karen Kincy
Release Date: July 1, 2010

From the author's site:
Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves. When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive.

The cover is officially here! Augh, I love how her shoulder just shifts from skin to feather; plus the woodsy background. This sort of reminds me of Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (which is amazing-read. it.)

2010-why do you feel so close yet so far?!


  1. I missed the feathers, I thought it was a weird print on her shirt! X9
