Waiting on Wednesday: New Pompeii by Daniel Godfrey

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week I’m highlighting: New Pompeii by Daniel Gordon due out in June this year.  Because – replica Pompeii, hidden in central Asia and filled with Romans!

NewPomp.jpgIn the near future, energy giant Novus Particles develops the technology to transport objects and people from the deep past to the present. Their biggest secret: New Pompeii. A replica of the city hidden deep in central Asia, filled with Romans pulled through time a split second before the volcano erupted.

Historian Nick Houghton doesn’t know why he’s been chosen to be the company’s historical advisor. He’s just excited to be there. Until he starts to wonder what happened to his predecessor. Until he realizes that NovusPart have more secrets than even the conspiracy theorists suspect.

Until he realizes that NovusPart have underestimated their captives…

    OK, this does sound intriguing. Also reminds me of The Just City, but different. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, like an experimental city but in the future! I think the next Jo Walton book should be out fairly soon – Necessity??

    This one had caught my eye too, but for some reason I thought it was a part of a series? I must be mixing it up with another book that has a similar cover and color scheme. Regardless, this sounds good!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Maybe it is part of a series – Ooops!! I should tell you about my most recent book bungle! Sometimes I can’t believe myself. I will have to DM you!
