Waiting on Wednesday #27

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted at Breaking the Spine. Here is the upcoming release that I'm not-so-patiently waiting for! 

A Darkness Strange and Lovely
By: Susan Dennard
Release Date: 07/23/13
Following an all-out battle with the walking Dead, the Spirit Hunters have fled Philadelphia, leaving Eleanor alone to cope with the devastating aftermath. But there’s more trouble ahead—the evil necromancer Marcus has returned, and his diabolical advances have Eleanor escaping to Paris to seek the help of Joseph, Jie, and the infuriatingly handsome Daniel once again. When she arrives, however, she finds a whole new darkness lurking in this City of Light. As harrowing events unfold, Eleanor is forced to make a deadly decision that will mean life or death for everyone.

Why I'm waiting:
I simply adored Something Strange and Deadly. I thoroughly enjoyed reading a steampunk/zombie book set in Philadelphia. As much as I love Europe and want to go there one day, it's much easier for me to picture the setting when it's in a place I know. Furthermore, this book was extremely unique. Yes, there are other steampunk zombie books out there (Dearly, Departed anyone?), but this one stood out. I can't wait to see what Eleanor and the Spirit Hunters get into next!


  1. Loved Something Strange and Deadly. I can't wait to read what will happen next. And what to say about the cover. It's so gorgeous! Great pick.

  5. I've not read this series yet, nor have I heard of it! I'm not hugely keen on historical books, but I may have to check out the first book. The cover for this one is absolutely GORGEOUS!
