On My Wishlist #17: Dark Oracle and Rogue Oracle by Alayna Williams

WishlistOn My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s a meme where participants list books they want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

I still cannot belive I hadn’t heard anything about either one of these books before this week, but thanks to a fabulous giveaway from All Things Urban Fantasy, this horrible wrong has (at last) been made right!

Dark Oracle (Oracle, #1)     Rogue Oracle (Oracle, #2)

Here’s the Summary for Dark Oracle: As a criminal profiler, Tara used science and her intuitive skill at Tarot card divination to track down the dangerous and depraved, including the serial killer who left her scarred from head to toe. Since that savage attack, Tara has been a recluse. But now an ancient secret society known as Delphi’s Daughters has asked for her help in locating missing scientist Lowell Magnusson. And Tara, armed with her Tarot deck, her .38, and a stack of misgivings, agrees to try.

Tara immediately senses there is far more at stake than one man’s life. At his government lab in the New Mexico desert, Magnusson had developed groundbreaking technology with terrifying potential. Working alongside the brusque but charismatic agent Harry Li, Tara discovers that Magnusson’s daughter, Cassie, has knowledge that makes her a target too. The more Tara sees into the future, the more there is to fear. She knows she has to protect Cassie. But there may be no way to protect herself—from the enemies circling around her, or from the long-buried powers stirring to life within…

Tarot cards, crime scenes, and serial killers? Count me in! What’s on your Wishlist this week?

    Sounds like a manga series I’m reading called Zodiac PI. I like their cover art.

    My featured wish comes from the Armchair BEA interview I conducted earlier in the week. Come see who I interviewed and what book I’ve added.
