Waiting on Wednesday (03) - Darker Still



"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, host by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week we decided to let me have a pick. I picked a great one that might get us all reading.

It's 1880 in New York City and eighteen-year-old Natalie Stewart's quiet world is entirely turned upside down in one dangerous fell swoop. Chosen for a fate she can hardly begin to understand, she is beset by strange whispers, nightmares, curses, a haunted painting and an evil doppelganger. A dangerous demon has trapped a young man with whom she's immediately smitten, and Natalie is the only one who can help. Her eerie destiny is made frighteningly clear.

Spirited as Natalie is, her newfound fate is a lot to handle considering she has a major disability to overcome. Suffering from Selective Mutism due to a childhood trauma, Natalie must navigate between two realities; the New York she's always known, and the haunted room inside a painting where the soul of charming, young Lord Denbury has been trapped while his possessed body roams New York with impunity. Natalie must solve the pieces of a grim supernatural mystery as it unfolds, follow an inhuman murderer into the dark underbelly of New York, reverse the curse and find her voice... or else she'll be the next casualty of a magic most foul.



Mystery, history, and some demons, all mixed into a very interesting read. I can't wait to get our hand s on this. November just seems to long of a wait.... What's on your WoWs this week?
