Can't Wait Wednesday - Fury from the Tomb by S A Sidor (@sa_sidor)

"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.

Fury from the Tomb (The Institute for Singular Antiquities Book I) by S A Sidor
Expected publication: May 1st 2018 by Angry Robot

Mummies, grave-robbing ghouls, hopping vampires, and evil monks  beset a young archaeologist, in this fast-paced Indiana Jones-style adventure

Saqqara, Egypt, 1888, and in the booby-trapped tomb of an ancient sorcerer, Rom, a young Egyptologist, makes the discovery of a lifetime: five coffins and an eerie, oversized sarcophagus. But the expedition seems cursed, for after unearthing the mummies, all but Rom die horribly. He faithfully returns to America with his disturbing cargo, continuing by train to Los Angeles, home of his reclusive sponsor. When the train is hijacked by murderous banditos in the Arizona desert, who steal the mummies and flee over the border, Rom – with his benefactor’s rebellious daughter, an orphaned Chinese busboy, and a cold-blooded gunslinger – must ride into Mexico to bring the malevolent mummies back. If only mummies were their biggest problem…


Damn, but what a year this is turning out to be for adventure novels. If you think you're seeing a trend in the Ruins - The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh, Forsaken, Owl and the Tiger Thieves, Tomb of the God King, etc. - you are, and I like it!

  2. This sounds like fun. Gonna have to add it to the wishlist. I don't know that the cover pulled me in but the synopsis definitely did.

  3. This one caught my eye as well, and I'm so tempted to request it. But I'm a little apprehensive when it comes to Angry Robot books these days, so I'll wait to see what you think before I take the leap!

  4. I was literally thinking this reminded me of the Owl series. I hope it works out just as well.
