"Waiting on" Wednesday is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.
This week I am featuring a book that comes out soon, but not soon enough. Also, I don't know why I am so anxious for this book, but I am. The premise sounds good and it is blurbed by Patricia Briggs, whom so I figure it can't be too bad.
The Hanged Man (Her Majesty's Psychic Service #1): P.N. Elrod
From Goodreads: On a freezing Christmas
Eve in 1879, a forensic psychic reader is summoned from her Baker Street
lodgings to the scene of a questionable death. Alexandrina Victoria
Pendlebury (named after her godmother, the current Queen of England) is
adamant that the death in question is a magically compromised murder and
not a suicide, as the police had assumed, after the shocking revelation
contained by the body in question, Alex must put her personal loss
aside to uncover the deeper issues at stake, before more bodies turn up.
Turning to some choice allies—the handsome, prescient
Lieutenant Brooks, the brilliant, enigmatic Lord Desmond, and her
rapscallion cousin James—Alex will have to marshal all of her magical
and mental acumen to save Queen and Country from a shadowy threat. Our
singular heroine is caught up in this rousing gaslamp adventure of
cloaked assassins, meddlesome family, and dark magic.
mayhem and tea—a well-bred Victorian urban fantasy thriller. Prepare, o
reader, to be enthralled."—Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times Best
Selling Author of the Mercy Thompson series on P.N. Elrod's The Hanged Man
Doesn't it sound good? What are you waiting for?
