"Waiting On" Wednesday - April 20

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted each week over at Breaking the Spine and it's a great way to find upcoming books to read (when they come out) as the meme is all about books we're waiting to see be published. Some weeks there's too many books to choose between for this meme, and others, well my memory's not perfect and I can forget which of my favourite authors have books that are due to be published soon sometimes.

This week, I had to choose between about four books by Mercedes Lackey and the latest book by Sherrilyn Kenyon. The latter won out due to the description, and the fact that the cover is following the standard Dark Hunter style for the latest books (this choice because Amazon.com has still disabled the image-only linking code).

Retribution
Sherrilyn Kenyon
St Martin's Press

The amazon.com product description:
Harm no human…
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief—Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.
A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster…
Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.
Even though I have yet to read No Mercy, the last book in the Dark Hunter series, this looks like a book that I'm going to have to read. I'm definitely looking forward to Retribution.
