Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books you’re excited about with other readers and bloggers! Tor seems to have so many cool books coming out next year, that I’m going to have to clear my reading schedule. Here’s my latest Tor “can’t wait” book:
Unwrapped Sky by Rjurik Davidson. Release date: April 15 2014 (Tor Books). I can’t pronounce Mr. Davidson’s first name, but I sure love the cover of this book. Minotaurs, people! I’m getting a Max Gladstone vibe from this description:
Caeli-Amur: an ancient city perched on white cliffs overlooking the sea; a city ruled by three Houses, fighting internecine wars; a city which harbours ancient technology and hidden mysteries. But things are changing in Caeli-Amur. Ancient minotaurs arrive for the traditional Festival of the Sun. The slightly built New-Men bring their technology from their homeland. Wastelanders stream into the city hideously changed by the chemical streams to the north. Strikes break out in the factory district.
In a hideout beneath the city, a small group of seditionists debate ways to overthrow the Houses. How can they rouse the citizens of the city? Should they begin a campaign of terror? Is there a way to uncover the thaumaturgical knowledge that the Houses guard so jealously? As the Houses scramble to maintain their rule, it becomes clear that things will change forever in Caeli-Amur.
I also adore the UK cover of Unwrapped Sky:
I may have to purchase both versions of this book, I honestly can’t decide which I love better! What are you waiting on this week?
