Waiting on Wednesday #17 - A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I am waiting on A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey. It is the first book in a new series, The Lovegrove Legacy. I really enjoy stories about witches. I have ever since I went to Salem, MA. when I was small. When I grew up, I realized that most if not all of those accused of witchcraft in the Salem trials were not witches at all, simply odd or a victim of politics. A Breath of Frost promises witches of the more fictional type with dangers of the more paranormal kinds.

Here is what Goodreads has to say about it:
"In 1814, three cousins-Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope-discover their unknown family lineage of witchcraft. Beyond the familiar manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, a dangerous, alluring new underworld visible only to those with power is now open to the cousins. 
But unbeknownst to them, by claiming their power, the three cousins have inadvertently opened the gates to the Underworld. 
Now the dead, ghouls, hellhounds-and the most terrifying of all: the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters-are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. 
And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders...because she keeps finding the bodies. 
Can the cousins unravel the clues and mystery behind their heritage and power before their gifts are stripped away ...or even worse, another witch is killed?"

A Breath of Frost is due out January 7, 2014 from Walker Children's. The author has book trailers on her website at  http://alyxandraharvey.com/lovegrove/
