Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to discuss books we can’t wait to get our hands on.
Title: The Dog In The Dark (Noble Dead: Series 3 #2)
Author: Barb & J.C Hendee
Expected Publication Date: December 31, 2012
Hardcover, 464 pages
Barely escaping the city of Calm Seatt—and those hunting them—Magiere, Leesil, and the elven dog Chap sail south to continue their quest to find the powerful Orb of Air before their enemies do. But they are not alone, much to their chagrin.
The aging elfin assassin Brot’an has forced his company on them while also offering his protection. Chap doesn’t believe his ruse, however, and seeks to uncover the elf’s true agenda—as well as the cause of a war that has torn the elfin world asunder.
As they sail, Magiere struggles with her own dark nature, using Leesil’s love as an anchor to keep her grounded. For the personal price she paid to procure the Orb of Fire was more than she thought—and more than she wants to reveal to anyone.
But that is exactly what the cunning Brot’an wants to know. And he is willing to do whatever it takes—even if he must reveal his own dreaded secrets that may cost the entire party their lives…and their very souls.
While I have to wait until December, if not later, to get my hands on this book I don’t mind the wait so much, as it gives me time to catch up on the last few books in the series that I have yet to read.
