Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Here's this week's WOW pick:
I spotted The Dark Days Club on Penguin's First to Read site, but not soon enough to snag an early copy. I don't read a lot of historicals, but what I like about them is the strong heroines that buck the system. Lady Helen seems to do just that. This also sounds a little like Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate world, which I love.
The Dark Days Club
(Lady Helen #1)
Release: Jan. 26, 2016
New York Times bestseller Alison Goodman’s eagerly awaited new project: a Regency adventure starring a stylish and intrepid demon-hunter!
London, April 1812. On the eve of eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Wrexhall’s presentation to the queen, one of her family’s housemaids disappears-and Helen is drawn into the shadows of Regency London. There, she meets Lord Carlston, one of the few who can stop the perpetrators: a cabal of demons infiltrating every level of society. Dare she ask for his help, when his reputation is almost as black as his lingering eyes? And will her intelligence and headstrong curiosity wind up leading them into a death trap?
