Waiting on Wednesday #145


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.

Brimstone

Summary: 

A new dark historical fantasy from the supremely gifted * Cherie Priest, author of Mapelcroft and Boneshaker.
In the trenches of Europe during the Great War, Tomas Cordero operated a weapon more devastating than any gun: a flame projector that doused the enemy in liquid fire. Having left the battlefield a shattered man, he comes home to find yet more tragedy for in his absence, his wife has died of the flu. Haunted by memories of the woman he loved and the atrocities he perpetrated, Tomas dreams of fire and finds himself setting match to flame when awake....
Alice Dartle is a talented clairvoyant living among others who share her gifts in the community of Cassadaga, Florida. She too dreams of fire, knowing her nightmares are connected to the shell-shocked war veteran and widower. And she believes she can bring peace to him and his wife s spirit.
But the inferno that threatens to consume Tomas and Alice was set ablaze centuries ago by someone whose hatred transcended death itself.... *Christopher Golden, #1 New York TimesBestselling Author"

Why I'm Waiting:

I really enjoyed Maplecroft when I read it a couple of years ago and though I still have to read the second book Chapelwood, I can't help but be excited about this new book from Cherie Priest! It  has asuper creepy cover and I can't wait to see what thrills she has in store.

The Bear and the Nightingale

Summary:

A young woman’s family is threatened by forces both real and fantastical in this debut novel inspired by Russian fairy tales.

In a village at the edge of the wilderness of northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, a stranger with piercing blue eyes presents a new father with a gift - a precious jewel on a delicate chain, intended for his young daughter. Uncertain of its meaning, Pytor hides the gift away and Vasya grows up a wild, willful girl, to the chagrin of her family. But when mysterious forces threaten the happiness of their village, Vasya discovers that, armed only with the necklace, she may be the only one who can keep the darkness at bay.

Why I'm Waiting: 

This one besides having an amazing cover has tons of reviews and people are raving about it but I just discovered it and as soon as I saw it and read the summary I knew this would be this week's picks. I love a good book that spotlights fairy tales especially Russian ones!

What are you waiting on?
