The Obsidian Chamber by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

"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 Obsidian Chamber by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
Expected publication: October 25th 2016 by Grand Central Publishing

A TRAGIC DISAPPEARANCE
After a harrowing, otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachussetts, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is missing, presumed dead.

A SHOCKING RETURN
Sick with grief, Pendergast's ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive--only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.

AN INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT
Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, springs to action, chasing Constance's kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.

BUT IN A WORLD OF BLACK AND WHITE, NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS
And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying engine has stirred-and it may already be too late . . .


While I had issues with the final third of Pendergast's last adventure, he's such a fantastic character that it would take a lot more than one awkwardly forced story arc to keep me away.

  1. I hadn't even heard of this series, but you had me at 'otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachussetts.' Nice pick.

  2. I'll definitely give this one a try. Pendergast is an awesome character.

  3. Preston and Child's books are always fun, seeing this makes me wish I had more time for personal reads outside the SFF genre.
