Budding illionist Ann Van Housen is on top of the world; after scoring a spot on a prestigious European vaudeville tour, she has moved to London to chase her dream ad to join an underground society for people like her with psychic abilities. Along with her handsome beau, Cole Archer, Anna is prepared to take the city by storm.
But when Anna arrives in London, she finds the group in turmoil. Sensitives are disappearing and, without a suspect, the group's members are turning on one another. Could the kidnapper be someone within the society itself-or has the nefarious Dr. Boyle followed them to London?
As Cole and Anna begin to unravel the case and secrets about the society are revealed, they find themselves at odds, their plans for romance in London having vanished. Her life in danger and her relationship fizzling, can Anna find a way to track down the killer before he makes her his next victim-or will she have to pay the ultimate price for her powers? (Summary from Goodreads)

Ah, magic! Illusion, psychic ability, mystery and a really cool heroine. I'm excited for this sequel.

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.
The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is--although he doesn't know it--one of the MC's programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family? (Summary from Goodreads)

I LOVE the concept of this book and have been following Lindsey's blog for a long time, so this is just TOO COOL to finally be SO CLOSE to actually seeing it in real life! WOOT! WOOT! Atta girl Lindsey! YAY! :D I cannot wait to find out what happens between Meadow and Zephyr!

What are you waiting on this week?
