Waiting on Wednesday is a meme I’ve participated in for years which lets readers share their excitement for books coming out soon, and for those who are frequent visitors here, I think this week’s pick will be a little surprising until you recall that, though I had lots of problems with book one of this series, I did enjoy certain aspects of it. Plus, you know I’m a huge optimist when it comes to books. Anyway, the novel I’m eagerly awaiting is . . .
Series: Of Blood and Bone #1
Publisher: Orbit (February 20, 2018)
Length: 480 pages
The Ben-Elim, a race of warrior angels, once vanquished a mighty demon horde. Now they rule the Banished lands. But their dominion is brutally enforced and their ancient enemy may not be as crushed as they thought.
In the snowbound north, Drem, a trapper, finds mutilated corpses in the forests – a sign of demonic black magic.
In the south, Riv, a young, tempestuous soldier, discovers a deadly rift within the Ben-Elim themselves.
Two individuals with two world-changing secrets. But where will they lead? And what role will Drem and Riv play in the Banished Land’s fate? Difficult choices need to be made.
In the shadows, dark forces are gathering, waiting for their time to rise. . .
