Waiting on Wednesday: Lunarmorte by Samantha Young

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
______________________________

Lunarmorte (Book #1) by Samantha Young
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: Available Now
Publisher: Vanguard Press
Pages: 298

Summary: Existing in the shadows of our world are supernatural races; children blessed by the ancient Greek gods with unimaginable gifts, and at present they are fighting a two-thousand-year old war with one another. The Midnight Coven, an alliance of dark magiks faeries, and daemons born of black magik, believe that the vampyres and lykans are lesser supernaturals and a threat to mankind. They are at war with the Daylight Coven, a confederate of light magiks, faeries, vampyres and lykans who believe in the equality of the races. Into this war seventeen-year-old Caia Ribeiro is born...a lykan with a heritage unlike any other. A heritage that, whether she wants it to or not, will put her into the very heart of battle...

My Thoughts: When Sam first approached me about Lunarmorte, I was blown away by the unique, refreshing concept. I mean Greek Gods, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures combined in one book sounds amazing! I've always liked Greek mythology (and no, not because I'm Greek haha.) So, to see it used in a different way is very impressive. I can't wait to read it and I look forward to seeing how this trilogy progresses.

Sounds really good. I'm also a Greek mythology fan! The spelling kind of threw me off though...I've never seen "lykan" before, and rarely "magik" or "vampire" Sounds good, though!
