Can't Wait Wednesday (113)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. 






FROM GOODREADS:  
Three friends go looking for treasure and find horror in Jeffrey Ford's The Twilight Pariah.

All Maggie, Russell, and Henry wanted out of their last college vacation was to get drunk and play archaeologist in an old house in the woods outside of town. When they excavate the mansion's outhouse they find way more than they bargained for: a sealed bottle filled with a red liquid, along with the bizarre skeleton of a horned child

Disturbing the skeleton throws each of their lives into a living hell. They feel followed wherever they go, their homes are ransacked by unknown intruders, and people they care about are brutally, horribly dismembered. The three friends awakened something, a creature that will stop at nothing to retrieve its child.


WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I am really stoked to find out more about the creature that gets awakened and the horned child.  Doesn't  this sound AWESOME!

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK???

    1. The cover is almost perfect for the description. I love creepy covers almost as much as I love creepy books.

  6. This one sounds great! And Tor is one of my insta-buy publishers, so it is likely going to be very good.

    I am currently waiting for The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert.
