Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre

Release Date: August 5, 2014

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn't imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She's not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he's impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly... bad things are happening. It's a heady rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil's bargains, she isn't sure who—or what--she can trust. Not even her own mind...

I can't say that I have read any of Ann Aguirre's books, but this one piqued my interest. You've got your hefty plate of revenge, payback, events right after another, bad luck, deals, beautiful people, emotions running amok, pranks, secrets, and a little bit of mystery. That's a lot of things to go through in one's senior year, and I just can't wait to see it all unfold and how Edie comes out of this.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
