"Waiting On" Wednesday - Nightshifted

"Waiting On"  Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on...



Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander


* Book will be released May 22, 2012


Check out the description from Goodreads:
"From debut author Cassie Alexander comes a spectacular new urban fantasy series where working the nightshift can be a real nightmare.

Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine—from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond…

Edie’s just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed.  But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she’s haunted by the man’s dying words—Save Anna—and before she knows it, she’s on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. Grey’s Anatomy was never like this…"


This book looks like a really fun mix of medical and supernatural elements.  It's always interesting to see a well known job shown and then to add in supernatural elements.  I really like the cover too with its kind of cheesy standard heroine pose and that background with a dragon or demon that looks to be attacking someone.  Can't wait to see if this book is as good as it looks.
