Waiting on Wednesday 04/29/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Battle Ground by Jim Butcher (September 29, 2020 by Ace)

Hot on the heels of Peace Talks, which is due out in July, the seventeenth Dresden Files book will be releasing this fall. Now, I don’t usually feature sequels for Waiting on Wednesday unless I’m caught up with the series, but I think we can make an exception for this one because I pretty much devour Jim Butcher’s books as soon as I get my hands on them.

“THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET SERIOUS FOR HARRY DRESDEN, CHICAGO’S ONLY PROFESSIONAL WIZARD, in the next entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files.

Harry has faced terrible odds before. He has a long history of fighting enemies above his weight class. The Red Court of vampires. The fallen angels of the Order of the Blackened Denarius. The Outsiders.

But this time it’s different. A being more powerful and dangerous on an order of magnitude beyond what the world has seen in a millennium is coming. And she’s bringing an army. The Last Titan has declared war on the city of Chicago, and has come to subjugate humanity, obliterating any who stand in her way.

Harry’s mission is simple but impossible: Save the city by killing a Titan. And the attempt will change Harry’s life, Chicago, and the mortal world forever.”

  1. I think I’ve said this before, but I really need to start this series. I keep reading such great things about it, and though I sometimes shy away from urban fantasy I do like the sound of the character and everyone comments on how great a writer Jim Butcher is. Pushing it just a bit higher up the TBR…

  2. I got as far as Cold Days, but found the bleaker, darker mood hard to take… Glad this series is still going strong and maybe I’ll dive back in at some stage. I hope you love this offering, Mogsy:)

  3. I had a feeling you might pick this, in fact I thought I’d see more bloggers choose it since it was the “big” cover reveal last week😁

  4. I’ve read the first three in this series and really need to go back and reread them if I ever hope to read it again. I would like to catch up though someday and I know Stormi is really excited for this one because she is actually all caught up!

  5. Huh, as much as I love Dresden and am waiting for the series to continue, this sounds suspiciously like a Rick Riordan book, and in this particular context it’s not something I’m looking forward to! 😜
