“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.com, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
The weeks pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” is:
Murder of Crows
A Novel of Others
by Anne Bishop
03 . 04 . 14
Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others—where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules…
After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.
The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.
As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.
I have always loved Anne Bishop’s work. I even made my husband drive 6 hours with me to go meet her. I was originally a bit skeptical about this series. Most of her other books are written in more traditional fantasy lands. However, once I gave Written in Red a chance, I could NOT put it down…and have actually re-read it since. Once after recommending Written in Red to one of my closest friends, I received a text that said “I finished the book, and I hate you. Did you know the sequel doesn’t come out until next year?!” Along with others, I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever (though its only been about a year) and have already requested off from work on March 4th so I don’t have to waste any time getting started.
What are you waiting on…?
P.S. So EXCITED!!
