Waiting on Wednesday (117) THE SHADOW REVOLUTION by Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith

WOW 2014 copy

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. Click on that link and check out other WoW posts! I have been trying to find time to read the Vampire Empire books by Clay and Susan Griffith, but have failed miserably. However, they are starting a new series, and it makes me even more anxious to read their other books first. Here’s what I’m waiting on:

The Shadow RevolutionThe Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith. Releases June 2015 from Del Rey. I love this cover! Victorian urban fantasy! With werewolves! I’ve heard nothing but good things about this writing duo, and I expect this will be just as good as their first series. Here’s the description from Goodreads:

A thrilling new Victorian-era urban fantasy for fans of Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles, the Showtime series Penny Dreadful, and the Sherlock Holmes movies featuring Robert Downey, Jr.
 
They are the realm’s last, best defense against supernatural evil. But they’re going to need a lot more silver.
 
As fog descends, obscuring the gas lamps of Victorian London, werewolves prowl the shadows of back alleys. But they have infiltrated the inner circles of upper-crust society as well. Only a handful of specially gifted practitioners are equipped to battle the beasts. Among them are the roguish Simon Archer, who conceals his powers as a spell-casting scribe behind the smooth veneer of a dashing playboy; his layabout mentor, Nick Barker, who prefers a good pub to thrilling heroics; and the self-possessed alchemist Kate Anstruther, who is equally at home in a ballroom as she is on a battlefield.

After a lycanthrope targets Kate’s vulnerable younger sister, the three join forces with fierce Scottish monster-hunter Malcolm MacFarlane—but quickly discover they’re dealing with a threat far greater than anything they ever imagined.

  1. Ooh, I’ll have to check this one out. I’ve read 2 out of the 3 books in the Vampire Empire trilogy, will have to one day knock out that last one – it’s quite an interesting series and I enjoyed what I’ve read from them. And call me a sap, but I love it when I see couples write together 🙂

    I had always heard the best of things about Vampire Empire but I never got around to reading it myself. I’m very picky when it comes to steampunk. I love Victorian novels though.. and combine that with my love of Urban Fantasy and I will most definitely be seeking this one out. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I haven’t read the Vampire Empire books, but ooh this sounds so good! I haven’t come across many werewolves in Victorian London stories 😀 Definitely adding it to my TBR list. June seems so far away, though. Hope you love it when you read it!

  4. Oooh! A few weeks ago I was trying to find out if the authors had anything new coming out. I read the first two books of Vampire Empire and quite enjoyed them — the vampires are the farthest thing from sparkly, and the steampunk was done well. I’ve been meaning to reread the whole series now that it’s done. So I can’t wait to see what they will do with werewolves.
