Waiting on Wednesday: The Twilight Pariah by Jeffrey Ford

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

The Twilight Pariah by Jeffrey Ford
Expected publication: September 12, 2017 by Tor.com

Three friends go looking for treasure and find horror in Jeffrey Ford's The Twilight Pariah.

All Maggie, Russell, and Henry wanted out of their last college vacation was to get drunk and play archaeologist in an old house in the woods outside of town. When they excavate the mansion's outhouse they find way more than they bargained for: a sealed bottle filled with a red liquid, along with the bizarre skeleton of a horned child

Disturbing the skeleton throws each of their lives into a living hell. They feel followed wherever they go, their homes are ransacked by unknown intruders, and people they care about are brutally, horribly dismembered. The three friends awakened something, a creature that will stop at nothing to retrieve its child.

I actually landed an ARC of this earlier in the month, so I won't be waiting quite as long as many of you, but I think you'll agree this sounds like a damned creepy adventure.


  1. I think this one sounds pretty good. Must add to wishlist!

    1. I'm halfway through and enjoying it. Dark and creepy.
