Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. There are only two Wednesdays left in 2013 after today, and one of those is Christmas! It’s hard to believe this year went by so fast. But luckily for us readers, there will always be a steady supply of new books to read. This week I’m waiting on:
Peacemaker by Marianne de Pierres. Release date: April 29 2014 (Angry Robot). Those Angry Robots are at it again. They have the coolest covers and the wackiest mash-ups of genres of almost any publisher I know. If you live in Australia, you may recognize de Pierres’ name, since she’s written some books for Random House Australia (Night Creatures series), plus she lives there! Check out this story description:
When an imaginary animal from her troubled teenage years reappears, Virgin takes it to mean one of two things: a breakdown (hers!) or a warning. When the dead bodies start piling up around her and Nate, she decides on the latter. Something terrible is about to happen in the park and Virgin and her new partner are standing in its path…
Virgin Jackson is the senior ranger in Birrimun Park – the world’s last natural landscape, overshadowed though it is by a sprawling coastal megacity. She maintains public safety and order in the park, but her bosses have brought out a hotshot cowboy to help her catch some drug runners who are affecting tourism. She senses the company is holding something back from her, and she’s not keen on working with an outsider like Nate Sixkiller.
Not sure how I feel about a character’s name being “Virgin,” but perhaps it will all make sense when I read it. What do you think? Let me know your WOW link in the comments!
