Waiting on Wednesday (36): Plague in the Mirror

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Alright, I fully admit that this book has a lot of ways it could go wrong, but I'm hoping it doesn't, because it sounds dark, creepy and sexy. I mean, "sensual power"? That doesn't tend to be a YA plot line and I am curious. Also, I love reading books set in Florence, because A Room with a View.

Plague in the Mirror

Author: Deborah Noyes
Expected Publication Date: July 9, 2013
Publisher: Candlewick

Synopsis from Goodreads:
In a sensual paranormal romance, a teen girl’s doppelgänger from 1348 Florence lures her into the past in hopes of exacting a deadly trade.

It was meant to be a diversion — a summer in Florence with her best friend, Liam, and his travel-writer mom, doing historical research between breaks for gelato. A chance to forget that back in Vermont, May’s parents, and all semblance of safety, were breaking up. But when May wakes one night sensing someone in her room, only to find her ghostly twin staring back at her, normalcy becomes a distant memory. And when later she follows the menacing Cristofana through a portale to fourteenth-century Florence, May never expects to find safety in the eyes of Marco, a soulful painter who awakens in her a burning desire and makes her feel truly seen. The wily Cristofana wants nothing less of May than to inhabit each other’s lives, but with the Black Death ravaging Old Florence, can May’s longing for Marco’s touch be anything but madness? Lush with atmosphere both passionate and eerie, this evocative tale follows a girl on the brink of womanhood as she dares to transcend the familiar — and discovers her sensual power.

Hold the phone. Is this YA? This sounds very sexy and mysterious. I've never heard of this one, but I may just have to add it to my TBR shelf.

Yup, according to GR, this one's for ages 14 and up. I always love seeing that on Amazon, because I know the read will be more intense. :)

I don't think it could go either way. I think it could only go the awesome way! I am so sold on this one...Why have I never hear of it before? It sounds so good! And seriously, there needs to be more out there with doppelgangers. Thanks for sharing!

Probably because I try to scare up books that have been flying under the radar for my WoW posts. ;)

This one sounds so intense-I hadn't heard of it before and I'm a bit surprised to read that it's YA but it sounds like it's meant to be on the older side so that explains it all. Thanks for sharing!
