Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Souls

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Dark Souls by Paula Morris
Pub. Date: August 1, 2011


Goodreads says, "Welcome to York, England.  Mist lingers in the streets.  Narrow buildings cast long shadows.  This is the most haunted city in the world. . . .  Miranda Tennant arrives in York with a terrible, tragic secret. She is eager to lose herself amid the quaint cobblestones, hoping she won’t run into the countless ghosts who supposedly roam the city. . . . Then she meets Nick, an intense, dark-eyed boy who knows all of York’s hidden places and histories. Miranda wonders if Nick is falling for her, but she is distracted by another boy — one even more handsome and mysterious than Nick. He lives in the house across from Miranda and seems desperate to send her some sort of message. Could this boy be one of York’s haunted souls? Soon, Miranda realizes that something dangerous — and deadly — is being planned. And she may have to face the darkest part of herself in order to unravel the mystery — and find redemption."


*You had me at ghosts, England, narrow buildings, and cobblestone streets....this one sounds fascinating. I know many of my students read her other novel, Ruined, and loved it, so I need to get my hands on a copy of this one. Thankfully, it is coming out soon and I think it would look especially good in my beach bag.
