Waiting on Wednesday (50)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. We hadn't done Waiting on Wednesday since early last year, but we recently decided it's about time to bring it back.  So here's this week's WOW pick:

I have a confession to make.

I've never read a Jim Butcher book.

I know. I love urban fantasy but yet I haven't picked any of the Dresden Files books. I am kind of ashamed of that. I do have have the first nine books scattered throughout Mount TBR. I just need to read them.

I decided earlier this year that The Aeronaut's Windlass will be my first Jim Butcher book and I'm going to stick to that decision. It's the start of a new series plus it's a steampunk book with airships! It sounds like a great starting place to me! I don't know much about this book other than that but I'm so excited to read it! So many of my blogger friends who got ARCs have loved it! I need this book in my hands ASAP! I hear it even has a talking cat in it.

The Aeronaut's Windlass
(The Cinder Spires #1)
Jim Butcher
Release: September 29, 2015
Links: Goodreads Amazon
Jim Butcher, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files and the Codex Alera novels, conjures up a new series set in a fantastic world of noble families, steam-powered technology, and magic-wielding warriors…

Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity, towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the peace.

Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship, Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy’s shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion—to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory.

And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity’s ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake…
What book are you waiting on?

  1. I think you'll like this one. It has a very SciFi feel to me, along with the epic scale of a fantasy novel. And yes, it has a talking cat (sort of.)


I love to read comments!
