Waiting on Wednesday

This is a wonderful weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that features upcoming new releases that we are anxiously awaiting. I know myself I am getting to the point that I am somewhat vexed at a novel that leaves you hanging by a thread at the end, and you realize you have to wait until the next one to find out what happens. This is the case with Laurie R. King's The Language of Bees and I am thrilled to know that The God of The Hive is soon to be released.

The Golden Spiral (Book 2 in the Hourglass Trilogy)

May 10, 2010

His eyes. His touch. His kiss. Dante was unlike anyone Abby had ever met. Now he is gone and Abby will do anything to get him back.

The hourglass door has closed behind Dante, sending him back in time to hunt down Zo, Tony and V. Abby knows that Dante, as the Master in Time, is the only person capable of stopping them from destroying time itself. She also knows that he will need her help. But, almost immediately, things start to change, and Abby's worst fears are realized when Zo begins targeting her past specifically. As Abby's world fractures around her, she must face a terrible truth: either Dante didn't make it through the door, or he is lost forever. So with Dante's blueprints in hand, she begins construction on a new door, another machine through time that will either save Dante or doom him.

The God of The Hive (Book 10 in the Mary Russell Series)
by Laurie R. King
April 27, 2010

It began as a problem
in one of Holmes' beloved beehives, led to a murderous cult, and ended - or so they'd hoped - with a daring escape from a sacrificial altar. Instead, Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, have stirred the wrath and the limitless resources of those they've thwarted. Now they are separated and on the run, wanted by the police, and pursued across the Continent by a ruthless enemy with powerful connections.

Unstoppable together, Russell and Holmes
will have to survive this time, maintaining tenuous contact only by means of coded messages and and cryptic notes. With Holmes' young granddaughter in her safekeeping, Russell will have to call on instincts she didn't know she had. But has the couple already made a fatal mistake by separating, making themselves easier targets for the shadowy government agents sent to silence them?


  1. I am not familiar with either of these series but they both look good, particularly The Golden Spiral. I enjoy the original Sherlock Holmes stories but haven't read any of the spin-off literature. Nice picks!
