Can't Wait Wednesday (321) - A Double Dog Dose!

 

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.




SYNOPSIS: XK9 Rex is a dog who knows too much. Now his past is gunning for him.


Rex and his Packmates were bio-engineered and cyber-enhanced to be cutting edge law enforcement tools. So smart they’re considered uplifted sapient beings on Rana Habitat Space Station. Rex may be the Leader of the Pack on Rana, but his past is still gunning for him.

Before Rex came to Rana Station, he ran afoul of Transmondian spymaster Col. Jackson Wisniewski. He deliberately flunked out of the espionage program and threatened Wisniewski’s life. Now Wisniewski wants Rex dead. Transmondian agents watch and wait for any opportunity to strike.

Rex takes pains to evade his old enemy. His human partner, Charlie, faces a different struggle. He works to recover from catastrophic injuries – and comes face-to-face with a once-in-a-lifetime love he thought he’d lost forever.

Can Rex and Charlie confront their pasts and secure their futures? Or will events force them to sacrifice everything?

WHY I CAN'T WAIT: I feel like I've been waiting for years for this book.  When Jan contacted me last week and said it was getting ready to roll out, I actually squealed as bit.  And how awesome is that cover?  You can find my review for the first one HERE.

CASSIUS'S PICK:


SYNOPSIS: It's scary being the new dog.

In this suspenseful new series, readers meet Sophie, a dog who can't remember what happened. She doesn't know how she ended up in this house. She doesn't recognize any of these other dogs. She knows something terrible happened but she just... can't... recall... Wait! Where's her lady? It's all coming back to her now, and it's enough to raise Sophie's hackles. Now Sophie has to figure out where she is, what's happening and how she's going to survive this.

They say there's no such thing as a bad dog, just bad owners.

STRAY DOGS is a heartbreakingly adorable suspense thriller by My Little Pony comic artists TONY FLEECS and TRISH FORSTNER. It's Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs.

Collects STRAY DOGS #1-5

WHY CASSIUS CAN'T WAIT:  I'm a very visual dog so I love reading graphic novels with Mom.  I'm super curious about the tag of Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs.  I can't imagine what that's all about.

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

  1. Both of these sound good! The second one has a cover that makes me all sad and wanting to pick up and comfort that poor dog. Hope you get these soon!

  4. A Bone to Pick sounds really interesting. Sounds like a series worth checking out! I'm really curious about Stray Dogs. "Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs" is quite a comparison! Two very different types of stories. I hope you enjoy both of these books, Barb!
