"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D' Lacey
Angry Robot (February 25, 2014)
It is the Black Dawn, a time of environmental apocalypse, the earth wracked and dying.
It is the Bright Day, a time long generations hence, when a peace has descended across the world.
The search for the shadowy figure known only as the Crowman continues, as the Green Men prepare to rise up against the forces of the Ward.
The world has been condemned. Only Gordon Black and The Crowman can redeem it.
Black Feathers, the first book of this duology, was a great read, well-told, with a narrative style that flowed quickly and easily (check out my review). I was hooked by the end of the first chapter, and kept finding it harder and harder to put the book down. I suspect this second volume will be a very different story, but I'm anxious to see how it all gets resolved.
