Waiting on Wednesday: Darker Still

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

My selection for this week is:

Darker Still (Magic Most Foul,#1) by Leanna Renee Hieber
Publication Date: November 1st 2011
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

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.

What I think:
I can't help but feel intrigued when the premise of a story promises that combines The Picture of Dorian Gray, Pride and Prejudice and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!I just can't resist such a premise!I'm eager to see how such a combination of elements will work out and I only hope it will be as good as I imagine it it will be!
