Waiting on Wednesday #45 - Under the Final Moon by Hannah Jayne

"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 anticipating Under the Under the Final Moon by Hannah Jayne (book 6 in the Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles featuring Sophie Lawson). It's due to be released August 5, 2014 by Kensington Books.

From the publisher:
It's not the end of the world--until it is.
Sophie Lawson may be a mere human with no special abilities except a strong immunity to magic. But the havoc she's wreaked on the supernaturals who come up against the Underworld Detection Agency have earned her plenty of enemies. Still, a girl can't freak out every time a horribly barbecued corpse is found with her business card in its hand. Or see a sudden glut of earthquakes, wildfires and three-headed dogs as just another day in California. But Alex Grace, her favorite fallen angel, is concerned--or saying he is to see more of her. Getting Sophie to see all the signs of the Apocalypse is an interesting way to heat things up. Or maybe what's making everyone hot under the collar is the fact that all Hell is about to break loose. . .
It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Sherlock Holmes in this feisty, funny Urban Fantasy series. Meet "breather" Sophie Lawson, her vampire-fashionista roommate Nina, the brooding eternally sixteen-year old Vlad, and the two men making up Sophie's sweet and sexy love triangle - fallen angel Alex Grace and Vessel Guardian Will Sherman.
What draws me to this book is that it's supposed to be humorous and Urban Fantasy. RT Book Reviews gave it 4 stars and said that Sophie was a strong, likable character. And that there is sharp,funny dialogue that brings levity when needed and the supporting characters add even more amusement and plot development. Looking forward to checking this series out.
