Waiting On Wednesday (37)

Other by Karen Kincy (July 1st 2010--Flux)

"Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.

When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive."

  2. I'm highly confused by your "polka" reference. Of course it's a dance!

    She's half "pooka", which I guess is close to the spelling of polka. :)

  4. Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a good one, I've added to my wishlist :)

    From the cover I would have guessed that a pooka is some kind of shifter but I'll guess we'll find out when the book comes out(or someone gets an ARC).
