Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: February 15, 2011

The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger. 

I read the first book, The Body Finder, only a week or so ago and it was good! After finishing it, I couldn't believe I had waited so long to read it... but on the other hand, now I don't have to wait so long for the second book!! I loved the relationship that forms in the first book between Jay and Violet, and I'm also looking forward to seeing if Violet will learn more about her abilities in this book!

And if you haven't checked out the cool book trailer for Desires of the Dead yet, you can watch it here
