Synopsis
Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name—but no memories of her past. She’s been told that she's in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access—and there is nothing they won’t say—or do—to her to get her to remember.

At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things—things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed—and she’s lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her—but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
The whole "buttons being sewn into her skin" line promises enough creepy factor to have me extremely intrigued. Also, I can't deny the allure of a "dangerous magic-wielding serial killer." I have yet to read Durst's Vessel, though I fully intend to sometime in the future. I'm definitely excited for Conjured! It sounds like a thrilling read that I can't wait to get my hands on.

What is everyone else waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Yes! I'm so excited for this one, too. The buttons. *shivers* As soon as I read the words magic-wielding serial killer I was sold. I haven't read Vessel either, but I really liked Eat, Slay, Love. And I love this Hellraiser cover. Great pick!

  9. READ VESSEL. I don't care if this one sounds like more of a "you" book, Vessel is just too good for you to keep putting it off. Although I suppose you could read both and make both of us happy then. :)
