WoW: Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where we can post our links and see what books others are waiting for. It spotlights upcoming releases.

I am eagerly waiting for Dark Currents: Agent of Hel by Jacqueline Carey to be released on October 2. Here is the description:
Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Kushiel’s Legacy novels, presents an all-new world featuring a woman caught between the normal and paranormal worlds, while enforcing order in both. Introducing Daisy Johanssen, reluctant hell-spawn… 

The Midwestern resort town of Pemkowet boasts a diverse population: eccentric locals, wealthy summer people, and tourists by the busload; not to mention fairies, sprites, vampires, naiads, ogres and a whole host of eldritch folk, presided over by Hel, a reclusive Norse goddess.

To Daisy Johanssen, fathered by an incubus and raised by a single mother, it’s home. And as Hel’s enforcer and the designated liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, it’s up to her to ensure relations between the mundane and eldritch communities run smoothly.

But when a young man from a nearby college drowns—and signs point to eldritch involvement—the town’s booming paranormal tourism trade is at stake. Teamed up with her childhood crush, Officer Cody Fairfax, a sexy werewolf on the down-low, Daisy must solve the crime—and keep a tight rein on the darker side of her nature. For if she’s ever tempted to invoke her demonic birthright, it could accidentally unleash nothing less than Armageddon.  
I have really enjoyed the Kushiel books and am eager to see how she handles contemporary urban fantasy.

How does this one sound to you?


  1. I still need to catch up on the rest of the Kushiel series, but this looks like fun too!

  2. I'm generally not a fan of urban fantasy, but from what I've read of Carey to-date, she may just tempt me into reading this.

    Nice pick.

  3. Nice! Haven't heard of this one!

    Here's my WoW
