Waiting on Wednesday 04/29/15

“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:

The Paradox by Charlie Fletcher: August 18, 2015 (Orbit)

I’m very excited for this! The first book The Oversight was an ARC that unexpected landed on my doorstep last year, and not knowing anything about it I nonetheless gave it a try. Well, I ended up loving it. It won me over with it many twists and turns and an incredibly atmospheric setting, and characters that stayed with me for a long time. I can’t wait to catch up with them in the sequel, which sounds just as lovely.

The Paradox“From HBO scriptwriter Charlie Fletcher comes a wildly original and hugely entertaining new fantasy series for a generation that has grown up with Harry Potter and Neil Gaiman.

The Last Hand of the Oversight still patrols the border between the natural and supranatural, holding a candle to the darkness. But this new Hand is unproven, its fresh members untrained, its veterans weary and battle-scarred. Their vulnerability brings new enemies into the city, and surprising new allies from across the sea.

But most surprising of all are new revelations about the Oversight’s past, revelations that will expose the true peril of the world in which Sharp and Sara are trapped — the secret of the Black Mirrors, and what lies beyond. And the catastrophic danger that will follow them home, if they ever manage to return.

The dark waters rise. The candles are guttering. But the light still remains.

For now…”

 Tiara’s Pick: 

Rat Queens, Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe: May 6, 2015 (Image Comics)

For my birthday last year, Wendy so graciously sent me a copy of the first volume which I enjoyed very much. It was a fun romp following an all female mercenary group who liked to drink, party, and cause general chaos. I managed to resist the temptation of having it pulled for me, but now I am pleased to learn that the second volume is right around the corner. Also, since I am a tentacles enthusiast (yeah, we exist), I know this is a must buy.

Rat Queens v2

“This booze-soaked second volume of RAT QUEENS reveals a growing menace within the very walls of Palisade. And while Dee may have run from her past, the bloated, blood-feasting sky god N’rygoth never really lets his children stray too far. Collects RAT QUEENS #6-10.”
