Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to highlight upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. I just had to feature an Angry Robot book this week, since AR is finally back on track with a whole new list of upcoming releases! Here’s one I’m SUPER excited about, having absolutely loved the first book in the series, The Bullet-Catcher’s Daughter:
Unseemly Science (The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire #2) by Rod Duncan. Releases in May 2015 from Angry Robot Books. I was surprised and delighted when I read the first book, so if you haven’t started the series, and you love awesome female characters and a fast-moving plot, you really should catch up before May. Here’s the description from Goodreads:
In the divided land of England, Elizabeth Barnabus has been living a double life – as both herself and as her brother, the private detective. Witnessing the hanging of Alice Carter, the false duchess, Elizabeth resolves to throw the Bullet Catcher’s Handbook into the fire, and forget her past. If only it were that easy!
There is a new charitable organisation in town, run by some highly respectable women. But something doesn’t feel right to Elizabeth. Perhaps it is time for her fictional brother to come out of retirement for one last case…? Her unstoppable curiosity leads her to a dark world of body-snatching, unseemly experimentation, politics and scandal. Never was it harder for a woman in a man’s world…
Have you started this series yet? Let me know what you’re waiting on:-D
