Waiting on Wednesday #24
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.
For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:
Maplecroft by Cherie Priest
Set For Release On: September 2nd, 2014
Summary From Goodreads:
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one….
The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny.
But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean’s depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness.
This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe.
As usual I was alerted to this title thanks to Cover Snark, a feature on A Reader of Fictions that I adore, and had to make it this WoW! Look at the prettiness that is this cover!!! There is elegance mixed with brutality, refinement combined with savagery, it’s beautiful! *stares* O_O
*still staring* O_O Seriously though, the cover is amazing, and on top of it the premise sounds awesome. What forms will this “evil” take? How many cool battles will ensue? Whatever will she wear as she attempts to slay it?! So many questions!
What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
