In My Mailbox (48)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I have included links to Goodreads should you want more information on the books.

I had pre-ordered this months ago, so was a nice surprise when As Lies the Dead by Kelly Meding showed up in my mailbox!

Evangeline Stone, a rogue bounty hunter, never asked for a world divided between darkness and light……or the power to die and live again in someone else's borrowed body. After a murder plot meant to take her out leaves an entire race of shapeshifters nearly extinct, Evy is gnawed by guilt. So when one of the few survivors of the slaughter enlists her aid, she feels duty-bound to help—even though protecting a frail, pregnant shifter is the last thing Evy needs, especially with the world going to hell around her.

Unholy Magic by Stacia Kane called out to me from the shelf as I was happily wandering Barnes and Noble. How could I resist?

For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill.

Can't wait to see what everyone received this week!


  1. I have that first book on my amazon wishlist and I don't remember when or why I put it there. ha! I think it's a series, right? I think I did it because it's one I'd like to try out at some point but never remember it when I am in a store!

  2. Have fun with your new books. I keep hearing great things about the Stacia Kane book.

  3. Oo these both sound like exciting reads! I had heard of As Lie the Dead, but Unholy Magic is a new one! I'll be interested to hear what you think! Enjoy!
