Where did it go?

A number of months ago, I remember reading about a new book from Melissa de la Cruz that wasn't part of her Blue Bloods series and that looked incredibly interesting. Naturally, I jotted it down onto my "to-read" list and then forgot about it for a while.

I know, the whole point of keeping track of the books you want to read on a list is so that you don't forget about them. But to be honest, there are so many books on the list that the ones not regularly mentioned around the blogosphere kind of fade into the background until I manage to drag them up again.

It's a book by Melissa de la Cruz, though. It shouldn't have been one to fade into the background. Especially not with this gorgeous cover:

"The Angels Practice, or TAP as it's known to its members is the kind of cult that doesn't exist. Not that anyone can see, anyway. It's not a religion, so there are no churches; it's not a science so there are no rules; it's not written in a book or on pamphlets and there are no preachers, salesmen, magicians or prophets.

All you need to know is that it will define who you are and what you will become, so you had better get it right. TAP can give you everything, but it wants everything in return: money, loyalty, absolute obedience.

Taj and Nick seem to be the only people who aren't buying into the TAP culture, and when the people closest to them start to disappear into its vortex, they discover something far more sinister. It appears that TAP has plans for its members, and like it or not, there's no way out.

As Taj and Nick frantically search for a way to reach the lost souls who have been tapped, the Angels Practice tightens its hold. Can they resist the lure of TAP's dark side and uncover the truth before they too disappear? TAP mythology began with Angels on Sunset Boulevard, and now this great new bind-up completes the edgy and compelling story." -From

The synopsis defintiely sounds exciting enough, and Goodreads says that it came out back in October of 2009. And yet there are zero reviews for it and Amazon has nothing except an "out of print/limited availability" stamp on it.

Does anyone have any idea what happened?
