Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about! A bunch of new Tor covers were revealed this past week, and this one especially caught my eye:
Unwept (Book One of the Nightbirds) by Tracy Hickman & Laura Hickman. Release date: July 1 2014 (Tor Books). This cover…it’s creepy, it’s beautiful, it’s making me fidget with all those moths…Hickman’s written a bunch of books, and I’m sorry to admit I haven’t read any of them. Laura is his wife! Here’s the description from Goodreads:
Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herself—but she doesn’t remember any of them.
Unknown events have robbed Ellis of her memory. Concerned individuals, who purport to be her friends and loved ones, insist that she simply needs to recuperate, that her memories may return in time, but refuse to divulge what has brought her to this state. For her own sake, so they say.
Ellis finds herself adrift in a town of ominous mysteries, cryptic hints, and disturbingly familiar strangers. The Nightbirds, a clique of fashionable young men and women, claim her as one of their own, but who among them can she truly trust? And what of the phantom suitor who visits her in her dreams? Is he a memory, a figment of her imagination, or a living nightmare beyond rational explanation?
Only her lost past hold the answers she seeks—if she can uncover its secrets before she fall prey to an unearthly killer.
Sounds good, right? What are you waiting on this week?
