Waiting on Wednesday (39): Evernight by Kristen Callihan

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

Title: Evernight (Darkest London #5)
Author: Kristen Callihan
Publisher: Forever
Release Date: August 26, 2014

Once the night comes . . .

Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can't control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.

Love must cast aside the shadows . . .

Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she's the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.

I just finished Shadowdance (Thanks Kayla!!) and really enjoyed it! I love this series! (even though I ALWAYS confuse it with the London Steampunk series by Bec McMaster! If you love this series, then you should definitely check out the London Steampunk series too! And vice versa.) I'm so glad that Callihan continued with the series past the original three sisters, even though I wasn't sure at first if I would like it. And, from what we see of Will Thorne in Shadowdance, I can't help but feel sorry for him.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I actually have never heard of this series. It does sound interesting but also a little heavy on the romance which isn't my cup of tea at all!?

    1. It is quite heavy on the romance - it's much more paranormal romance than urban fantasy/steampunk.

  2. Hmm, I haven't seen this series before, but I'm not too big of a fan of steampunk at the moment! Great pick, though! I hope you enjoy it! :D Have an amazing day Amber!

  3. I have never heard of this, but it sounds pretty awesome, although Steampunk is not so my genre. I think I'll check this out anyway.
    Thanks for sharing and stepping by my WoW!

  4. I love the cover! Hope you can stop by mine.

  5. I’ve read all the books in this series and they were all 5 star reads for me, this one being one of my favorites along with Firelight.
