Waiting on Hemlock

Waiting-On-Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we simply cannot wait for.

About a year ago, I heard about this book called Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock. It sounded intriguing and as an aspiring author myself (note the term aspiring), I was fascinated by Kathleen's journey into publishing. I feel like her book is finally coming out in an attainable future. I can't wait to read it.

400 pages
Expected publication: May 8th 2012 
by HarperCollins Children's Books

Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered. 

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love. (Goodreads summary)

The cover is beautiful, the plot fascinating, and though I don't know her, I've decided that I love Kathleen Peacock. I am very excited for this book. If you also can't wait to read Hemlock, Kathleen is offering a chance to win a copy on her blog -- go here and enter to win.
