Waiting on Wednesday 26/02/2014

“Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

A Southern girl. A wounded soldier. A chilling force deep in the forest.
All collide at night’s darkest hour.

Seventeen-year-old Violet Dancey has been left at home in Mississippi with a laudanum-addicted stepmother and love-crazed stepsister while her father fights in the war—a war that has already claimed her twin brother.
When she comes across a severely injured Union soldier lying in an abandoned lodge deep in the woods, things begin to change. Thomas is the enemy—one of the men who might have killed her own brother—and yet she's drawn to him. But Violet isn't Thomas's only visitor; someone has been tending to his wounds—keeping him alive—and it becomes chillingly clear that this care hasn't been out of compassion.
Against the dangers of war and ominous powers of voodoo, Violet must fight to protect her home and the people she loves.
From the author of Strands of Bronze and Gold comes a haunting love story and suspenseful thriller based on the ancient fairy tale of "Tam Lin."
Expected publication: 11/04/2014

I really like Tam Lin (basically it's about a badass girl who defeats the fairy queen to get her lover back) and the historical backdrop of this retelling looks really interesting. I really hope "The Mirk and Midnight Hour" will live up to the original version.

What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I have never heard of it, but it sounds really great. Need to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Interesting. I haven't heard of this one and I don't usually read historical-y things, but this sounds really good. Must add to TBR list!

  3. OOoh yes! I so cannot wait for this one! Loved Strands of Bronze and Gold and am eager for the next tale retold!! Already preordered it too!

    Thanks for visiting my WoW!

  4. Ooh yay! Strands of Bronze and Gold was so lovely and so good, so of course I'm excited to The Mirk and Midnight Hour! I don't think I'm very familiar with the story of Tam Lin (though you make it sound awesome!) but I'll read anything set in Mississippi (where I'm from), especially when it involves voodoo. :) Great pick!

    My WoW!
