Waiting on Wednesday: Brimstone by Cherie Priest

“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.  My book this week is : A dark historical fantasy!  You know you want this.  I’ve just read another of Cherie Priest’s books: The Family Plot – and loved it.  I have to have this book.  I have *all the wants* and *grabby hands*.

A new dark historical fantasy from the supremely gifted Cherie Priest, author ofMapelcroft and Boneshaker.

brimstone.jpgIn the trenches of Europe during the Great War, Tomas Cordero operated a weapon more devastating than any gun: a flame projector that doused the enemy in liquid fire. Having left the battlefield a shattered man, he comes home to find yet more tragedy for in his absence, his wife has died of the flu. Haunted by memories of the woman he loved and the atrocities he perpetrated, Tomas dreams of fire and finds himself setting match to flame when awake….

Alice Dartle is a talented clairvoyant living among others who share her gifts in the community of Cassadaga, Florida. She too dreams of fire, knowing her nightmares are connected to the shell-shocked war veteran and widower. And she believes she can bring peace to him and his wife s spirit.

But the inferno that threatens to consume Tomas and Alice was set ablaze centuries ago by someone whose hatred transcended death itself….

Due out in April 2017.

    Hmm, sounds like an interesting read. Priest has been hit or miss for me, but I like the story here.

      I really enjoyed The Family Plot to be honest. I’ve not read too much by her – although I read the first in her steampunk series.

    I featured this one 2-3 week ago after finishing The Family Plot. This one sounds really good and I love Priest’s writing. Too bad it’s such a long wait!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I just loved The Family Plot and this one sounds excellent. It’s not too bad a wait – we’ll have Christmas and then time will just fly! Plus – there’s the TBR to be tackled in the meantime.

    I seriously cannot wait for this book:-) I’m a new Cherie Priest fan so I guess I should go back and catch up with her other books while I wait!

    Oooo, historical fantasy! I’d not heard of this book or author before, but this sounds really great. Plus that cover is AMAZING. 😀 I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. 🙂

    Check out my WoW post!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hope so too and given how much I loved her last one I’m hopeful that this will be excellent! Have a great week yourself 😀

    Between this one and “The Family Plot” there is just too much talk about Cherie Priest lately, which increases my curiosity toward this author about whom I hear only great things.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really did like The Family Plot so I want to read this one very much.

    I’m reading The Family Plot right now and I am so hooked – looks like I’ll be reading more Cherie Priest, and this one sounds right up my alley 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s so good isn’t it – I was hooked too – virtually from page 1. The writing is great and I never thought I’d find myself so curious about the salvage business.

    That cover is gorgeous! I hope you enjoy this one. 🙂

  8. Danya @ Fine Print

    I’ve been seeing this book everywhere over the past week! Clearly it’s a sign that I need to read Brimstone ASAP. 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      And The Family Plot – the Family Plot was a great read, chilling and gothic.
