Waiting on Wednesday (95)

Posted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

Waiting on Wednesday (95)Unwept by Laura Hickman, Tracy Hickman
Series: The Nightbirds #1
Published by Tor Books on July 1st 2014

Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herselfโ€”but she doesnโ€™t remember any of them.

Unknown events have robbed Ellis of her memory. Concerned individuals, who purport to be her friends and loved ones, insist that she simply needs to recuperate, that her memories may return in time, but refuse to divulge what has brought her to this state. For her own sake, so they say.

Ellis finds herself adrift in a town of ominous mysteries, cryptic hints, and disturbingly familiar strangers. The Nightbirds, a clique of fashionable young men and women, claim her as one of their own, but who among them can she truly trust? And what of the phantom suitor who visits her in her dreams? Is he a memory, a figment of her imagination, or a living nightmare beyond rational explanation?

Only her lost past hold the answers she seeksโ€”if she can uncover its secrets before she fall prey to an unearthly killer.

This sounds like my kind of creepeh! Plus just knowing it’s from the horror guru themselves – Tor Books – makes me want to read it all the more! The authors described it as “dark and disturbing” on a cover reveal post I saw. Cmon, y’all know me by now! How could I not want to read this? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Love the cover for Unwept except for that moth – it’s creepy. Amnesia stories can be intriguing when done right and based on the summary this sounds it will be interesting.
    Nice pick, Giselle.

    Tracy and Laura Hickman are also the freaking bomb! I’m used to epic fantasy from Tracy, so I’m so excited to see them branching out ๐Ÿ˜€

    Dark and disturbing, never being sure whom to trust? Small town secrets? Phantoms and other creepiness? Yes please ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks so much for highlighting it, Giselle! This is my first time seeing this one.
