Wishlist Wednesday: Geist

A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.
(hosted by Book Chick City & Breaking the Spine)

Book of the Order #1:
by Philippa Ballantine
release date: 26 October 2010
Between the living and the dead is the Order of the Deacons, protectors of the Empire, guardians against possession, sentinels enlisted to ward off the malevolent haunting of the geists...
Among the most powerful of the Order is Sorcha, now thrust into partnership with the novice Deacon, Merrick Chambers. They have been dispatched to the isolated village of Ulrich to aide the Priory with a surge of violent geist activity. With them is Raed Rossin, Pretender to the throne that Sorcha is sworn to protect, and bearer of a terrible curse.
But what greets them in the strange settlement is something far more predatory and more horrifying than any mere haunting. And as she uncovers a tradition of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history, Sorcha will be forced to reconsider everything she thinks she knows.
And if she makes it out of Ulrich alive, what in Hell is she returning to?

Why it's on my wishlist
A combination of: it's lack of any paraphrasing of "and she meets a hot dark stranger who will put her life at stake", the whole "pretender to the throne" thing, and my weakness for badass chicks in capes(??).

RL Update
I'm currently very very sick with the flu so I probably won't be able to do anything productive (read: reviews) for a while, but the upcoming giveaway will still be held. Hopefully I'll be able to crawl out of bed for longer than 2-hour intervals by next week orz
