Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. I know it’s been quiet lately here on the blog, but I’m now back from San Diego Comic Con and ready to start posting again. I had an amazing time, and a recap is coming soon, but I literally got home Sunday around 5:00 p.m. and immediately had to go back to work the next day, so not much will happen between now and the weekend.
However, at the Harper panel this past weekend, I was introduced to this book, and I cannot wait to read it:
Black Dog by Caitlin Kittredge. Releases in October from HarperVoyager. You guys, I am so into urban fantasy at the moment. Having just finished the wonderful California Bones, I’m searching out new UF books to read. This one looks like it will be just the thing:
The first installment in a fabulous dark urban fantasy series—think Kill Bill with demons and gangsters instead of martial arts—from the award-winning author of the Iron Codex trilogy and Vertigo comic Coffin Hill
Ava has spent the last hundred years as a hellhound, the indentured servant of a reaper who hunts errant souls and sends them to Hell. When a human necromancer convinces her to steal her reaper’s scythe, Ava incurs the wrath of the demon Lilith, her reaper’s boss.
As punishment for her transgression, Lilith orders Ava to track down the last soul in her reaper’s ledger . . . or die trying.
But after a hundred years of servitude, it’s time for payback. And Hell hath no fury like an avenging Ava.
What do you think? Will you be adding this to your TBR? Let me know what your WoW is!
