Waiting on Wednesday #21 Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  Darker Still (Magic Most Foul #1)
Author:  Leanna Renee Hieber
Release Date: 1st November 2011
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart's latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing...
Jonathan Denbury's soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.

Why I want it: Victorian fantasy, curses, magic, and a little bit of Jekyll and Hyde? Looks good to me. The cover’s pretty as well. And on a side note, it’s released on my birthday. Any book that shares a birthday with me (and there’s a few), I must check out.
