Waiting on Wednesday #18 – “Revenge and the Wild”

I have really no idea how I manage to find these books, everytime I’m on Goodreads (which is not as often as I want to be. You know … unfortunately, there is a tiny piece of life outside of the World of Books and Bloggers.)


Title: Revenge and the Wild
Author: Michelle Modesto
Pages: 384
will be released on February 2nd 2016

Dark Magic, Monsters, Cannibals (?!) and seeking Revenge. Sounds good?

“The two-bit town of Rogue City is a lawless place, full of dark magic and saloon brawls, monsters and six-shooters. But it’s perfect for seventeen-year-old Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.

Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.
But Westie’s search ceases when a wealthy family comes to town looking to invest in Nigel’s latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold—which Rogue City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start to fail. There’s only one problem: the investors look exactly like the family who murdered Westie’s kin. With the help of Nigel’s handsome but scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt. But if she’s not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the family she has now.”

from here.

WHY?

The better question: Why not? Yes, sure, the cannibals were something I didn’t really expect (and I’m not into cannibal-stories, really. Maybe Hannibal, but that’s a completely different type of story, isn’t it?)
Okay, the plot isn’t something totally new and mind-blowing, but I like books which deal with revenge and magic (or both).
I think it has potential to be great, but we all know how easily anticipated books can disappoint us, right?
Well, we’ll see.
