Waiting on Wednesday 09/17/14

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

Cherry Bomb by Kathleen Tierney/Caitlín R. Kiernan: Feb 3, 2015 (Roc)

This is the third installment of Caitlín R. Kiernan’s (writing as Kathleen Tierney) Siobhan Quinn series, continuing the eponymous heroine’s adventures as a half-werewolf-half-vampire (werepire!) through a side of the urban fantasy world you don’t usually see!

Cherry Bomb“Three years have passed since Quinn turned her back on Providence, Rhode Island’s seedy supernatural underbelly, walking out on Mr. B. and taking a bus headed anywhere. She hoped her escape would give her some peace from the endless parade of horrors. But a dead girl who quarrels with the moon can’t catch a break, and, on the streets of Manhattan, Quinn finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place. Again.

What do you do when you’re stuck in the middle of a three-million-year-old grudge match between the ghouls and the djinn, accidentally in possession of a hellish artifact that could turn the tide of the war, all the while being hunted by depraved half-ghoul twins intent on taking the object and ushering in a terrifying Dark Age?

Especially when you’ve fallen in love with the woman who got you into this mess—and you ain’t nobody’s hero…”

  1. I’ve only read the first book! I do love Caitlín R. Kiernan, though. These books are written very differently from her usual style, but I will be continuing with the series.

    • I have to check, but I think they’d done that since the first book, except back then listed both names like they were co-authors, and only started the “writing as” thing from the second book, odd indeed!

  2. I am not familiar with the Siobhan Quinn series. I haven’t heard of the author too. But werepire is definitely a funny term. Greatly reminded me of Underworld’s Michael Corvin.

    Lovely pick, Mogsy! I hope this one will be as enjoyable or better than the first two books. 😀

    • Caitlin R. Kiernan is pretty big in the fantasy/horror genre, but she’s definitely adopted a whole different form and style for these books! I think I like them better 🙂
