Can’t Wait Wednesday : An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris.  I haven’t read Charlaine Harris since the Sookie series and this is a new series so I thought why the heck not!

an easy deathThe first thriller in a new trilogy that presents a chilling alternate history of the United States where everyone believes in magic—but no one is sure whether they can trust it.

Gunnie Lizbeth Rose has been hired by a pair of Russian sorcerers as both their local guide and muscle through the small towns of East Texas as they search for a distant relative of an infamous sorcerer whose bloodline can help save their emperor-in-exile as an ever increasing number of assassins tries to stop them.

After the assassination of FDR in the 1930s, the US collapses and is picked off by the UK, Canada, Mexico, and Russia. We find ourselves in the southwestern states now known as Texoma. It is here that the gunnie Lizbeth Rose tries to piece out a life, running security on runs from Texoma, across the border to Mexico where work and prospects are stronger. When two Russian magicians come looking for a man named Alex Karkarov, they hire Lizbeth to find him or his family, but there are problems: The man they’re looking for is dead, but he has a daughter they now need to find, as an ever-growing set of sorcerers and gunnies do not want them to succeed. It’s a good thing Lizbeth is a deadly gunfighter; too bad she hates sorcerers, even the ones she has to learn to rely on.

Due for publication October 2018

      I hope it’s good – knowing this author I’m expecting that it will be entertaining and fun.

    Oh my gosh. I loved the Midnight Texas series and was so sad to see it end. This one sounds great and it’s going straight on the wishlist. I also enjoyed the Sookie books but do believe her books have gotten better since that series was published. Thanks so much for putting this one on my radar!

      I thought the Sookie books were fun – I wasn’t in love with the ending though. I haven’t read the Midnight Texas series – I shall go and take a look at those.

    Whoa, I haven’t heard of this! So cool, I did read the first book in her last series (Midnight Crossroad) and it was pretty good. I LOVE the sound of this😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve not read that series but I might take a look.

    It sounds different, with magic, dystopia and assassins running the show. 😮 I hope it is as entertaining as it promises to be.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I suspect it will be entertaining from from Ms Harris – but time will tell.

    Thank you so much for sharing this one – I love Charlaine Harris’s writing:)).

      I enjoyed the Sookie books – lots of fun but not for everyone.

        No… I’m not sure whether True Blood really did this series any favours – while many of the storylines were reasonably accurate, there simply wasn’t so much sex or graphic violence in the series….

    I didn’t really like the Sookie book 1 but this one sounds more fun. Thanks for bringing it to me attention.

    I wasn’t crazy about her Sookie Stackhouse, but this looks so cool that I might just have to try it!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I do like the look of this one. I did read ALL the Sookie books – I kind of got addicted to them although I wasn’t in love with the conclusion.
      Lynn 😀
