Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Hello, hello! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. This is my last day in week before I head off to Nottingham for the weekend for a catch up with my friends from University. The book I’ve chosen to focus on this week is one that popped up on my timeline recently and I just knew I had to get it on my TBR. described as John Wick with dragon magic set in contemporary San Francisco’s Chinatown. It sounds wholly fresh and I am hoping to get my hands on a copy soon. Click on the book cover if you want to add this one to your Goodreads TBR too.
Emiko Soong belongs to one of the eight premier magical families of the world. But Emiko never needed any magic. Because she is the Blade of the Soong Clan. Or was. Until she’s drenched in blood in the middle of a market in China, surrounded by bodies and the scent of blood and human waste as a lethal perfume.
The Butcher of Beijing now lives a quiet life in San Francisco, importing antiques. But when a shinigami, a god of death itself, calls in a family blood debt, Emiko must recover the Ebony Gate that holds back the hungry ghosts of the Yomi underworld. Or forfeit her soul as the anchor.
What’s a retired assassin to do but save the City By The Bay from an army of the dead?
