Waiting on Wednesday #35: Immortal City by Scott Speer

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Immortal City by Scott Speer
Publisher: Razorbill
Expected Publication: April 3rd, 2012
Pages: 336
Goodreads Summary:
Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

This sounds soooo amazing. I'm very jealous of everyone who has received an ARC of this, because I'd love to read this right now.

Also remember to follow Fictional Distraction via NetworkedBlogs or FeedBurner.

Today's also the last day to enter two of my international giveaways:
One of 8 YA November releases (e.g. Shatter Me, The Space Between, Darker Still...).
A copy of Unlovable by Sherry Gammon.
