Wishlist Wednesday #23

Hosted by Pen To Paper
Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.

Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build.
There are several Fury-related books coming out this year, but I think I'm the most excited for this one. The description on Goodreads describes it as Greek mythology meets Dexter. I haven't watched Dexter, but the idea of a vigilante for justice has its appeal. I love that she used to live in an asylum, that she only works at night, and that she learns to doubt the voices in her head. I predict some major drama to come.

I sort of cheated on this one, since it's not a book I'm technically wishing for. The ARC is sitting on my shelf, waiting patiently to be read closer to the release date. But still, I'm excited and wanted to share this book with all of you!

What book are you wishing for this Wednesday?
