"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
* * *Liar's Moon by Elizabeth C. Bunce
Release Date: November 1, 2011
Prisons, poisons, and passions combine in a gorgeously written fantasy noir.
As a pickpocket, Digger expects to spend a night in jail every now and then. But she doesn't expect to find Lord Durrel Decath there as well--or to hear he's soon to be executed for killing his wife.
Durrel once saved Digger's life, and when she goes free, she decides to use her skills as a thief, forger, and spy to return the favor. But each new clue only opens up new mysteries. Durrel's late wife had an illegal business on the wrong side of the civil war raging just outside the city gates. Digger keeps finding forbidden magic in places it has no reason to be.
And for a thief in a town full of liars, sometimes it doesn't pay to know the truth.
Wow I haven't done a WoW in a while! This book is the sequel to StarCrossed which was a pretty fantastic book. The writing style was different from what I was used to reading & I probably would not have picked up the book on my own but I'd signed up for a book tour so... And I found that I really liked the book a lot. So I can't wait for the next installment of Digger's adventures! Gorgeous cover too, right?
What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
