Waiting on Wednesday 06/29/16

“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

Chasing Embers by James Bennet (September 6, 2016 by Orbit)

My pick this week is another book inspired by myth and legend. The description is teasingly vague, but the “Not all stories are made up” tagline gives a nice hint of what’s to come!

Chasing Embers“Behind every myth, there’s a spark of truth…

There’s nothing special about Ben Garston. He’s just a guy with an attitude in a beat-up leather jacket, drowning his sorrows in a downtown bar. Or so he’d have you believe.

What Ben Garston can’t let you know is that he was once known as Red Ben. That the world of myth and legend isn’t just a fantasy, as we’ve been led to believe. And he certainly can’t let you know the secret of what’s hiding just beneath his skin…

But not even Ben knows what kind of hell is about to break loose. A centuries-old rivalry has just resurfaced, and the delicate balance between his world and ours is about to be shattered.”

  1. Yes, pretty vague description! But very cool cover and it sounds like it’s going to have humorous elements, which is always a good thing.


  2. I actually really love the vague description! Sometimes it’s nice to go in with few expectations about the plot – although I’m really hoping that there are dragons involved. Because dragons!


  3. Oooooh, this sounds VERY intriguing Mogsy! The blurb is sort of vague but what it hints at sounds excellent! Thanks for putting this on my radar my friend 🙂
