Waiting on Wednesday #44 - Black Rook by Kelly Meade

"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 the July 15, 2014 released of Black Rook by Kelly Meade by Intermix books. The loup garou or werewolves and magic users live side by side with humans. 

The trilogy is called Cornerstone Run. According to the author, the reason for this is: You’re probably curious what the heck Cornerstone Run means. Cornerstone is the name of the small Pennsylvania town where about eight hundred loup garou live and work and basically try to keep humans from knowing they exist in the world. Twelve other sanctuary towns like it are spread out throughout the country, each led by an Alpha. And a run is their word for “pack.”
This comes from her Kelley Meade tumblr blog, My Alter Ego.

The plot synopsis from Goodreads: 
She never saw this coming…

Brynn Atwood is a low-level Magus whose unpredictable precognitive powers have made her an outcast among her people—and an embarrassment to her highly-regarded father. After a frightening vision in which her father is murdered by a loup garou man, Brynn decides to prove herself by finding the killer, and stopping them at any cost.

Her target is Rook McQueen, the son of a small-town loup garou Alpha. Despite being the youngest of three, Rook is first in line to inherit the role of Alpha, a duty he isn't sure he's capable of fulfilling. When Brynn finally meets Rook, she doesn't expect the attraction that draws her to him—and him to her.

No longer believing him a murderer, Brynn and Rook strike an alliance to find her father's real killer. But when his older brother is targeted by an unknown enemy, Rook will have to choose between his growing feelings for Brynn and his duty as the future Alpha of his community.

You can read chapter one of Black Rook on her Kelly Meding blog now. And the book Black Rook has a preview of the next title in the trilogy, Gray Bishop, which should be available October 21, 2014. The third book, White Knight, is targeted for release January 1, 2015.
