Waiting On Wednesday:The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher
Expected publication: September 29th 2015 by Roc

Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity, towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the peace.

Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship, Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy's shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion—to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory.

And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity's ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake.

Butcher is another of those authors where I've missed my spot on the bandwagon, but have multiple titles lingering on my must-read list. With a new series just getting started, I'm looking forward to the chance to get in on the ground floor.


  1. Nice! I have yet to read this author despite hearing so many good things over the years! Should fix that!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I agree, I'm a Butcher newbie too, and I love that there's a new series to get started with. Great choice!

  3. YES I'm looking forward to this too! I'm very curious as to what I'll think of it. I'm a Dresden Files junkie, but I could not do his Codex Alera series at all.

  4. I started the first Dresden book and set it aside, but I keep thinking I should try again, and a new series is way less intimidating!

  5. I haven't read any of his before, but this looks very good! I love a little adventure in my stories.
