Wishlist Wednesday #35

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paperwhere we tell you about a book that is currently on our wishlist that we are excited for!

This week on Phil's Wishlist:


Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

Cover lust was part of the initial want for this book, and then when I read the synopsis and found out that it was about voodoo it peaked my interest even more. I'm currently caught up with the current season of American Horror Story, which has some voodoo aspects interwoven into the story line, and I really am enjoying this season. I'm worried because this story line sounds awesome, but I'm scared the amazingness that it could be will be watered down because it is YA. Then again I thought the same thing about Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I love that series more than literally anything in the world. So we will see, but I hope it'll be good, if not I will be upset.
