Synopsis: Numb, a man who feels no pain and has no memory of how he came to be this way, travels to New York City after a short stint in the circus to search for the answers to his past. But when word of his condition spreads—sparked by the attention he attracts from letting people nail his hands to bars for money—he quickly finds himself hounded on all sides by those who would use his unique ability in their own pursuits of fame and fortune.
There’s the best friend who doesn’t quite know how to handle Numb’s newfound celebrity, the savvy talent agent who may or may not have Numb’s best interests in mind, the sadistic supermodel whose idea of a good time involves lion claws and can openers, and the blind girlfriend who might actually see something in Numb others don’t. As Numb navigates this strange world, and as he continues to search for clues from his past, he is forced to confront one of life’s toughest questions: Who am I?
I've been looking forward to this one for awhile now. It sounds so interesting that I really can't wait to read it. Anyone else looking forward to this one as much as I am? What do you guys think?

Promise the Novel
Synopsis: Alexis Ames has a life full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.
When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.
Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.
I've seen this book popping up here and there and being added to friends shelves on Goodreads so I just had to see what it was all about. Sounds pretty interesting and one I'd love to read. I've added to this my wishlist, how about anyone else? Think this one looks pretty good? Anyone looking forward to reading this first in a series?
