“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
I love Barry Lyga’s I Hunt Killers series and the final chapter in the series, Blood of My Blood, is coming out this September! The second book in the series, Game, left us with some mighty cliffhangers and I can’t wait to see what happens next. SPOILERS AHEAD!
Jazz Dent has been shot and left to die in New York City. His girlfriend Connie is in the clutches of Jazz’s serial killer father, Billy. And his best friend Howie is bleeding to death on the floor of Jazz’s own home in tiny Lobo’s Nod. Somehow, these three must rise above the horrors their lives have become and find a way to come together in pursuit of Billy. But then Jazz crosses a line he’s never crossed before, and soon the entire country is wondering: “Like father, like son?” Who is the true monster?
The chase is on, and this time Jazz is the hunted, not the hunter. And beyond Billy there lurks something much, much worse. Prepare to meet…the Crow King.
If you can’t wait until September, you can check out a recently released prequel to the series, Lucky Day, which was released as an ebook in April 2014.
Four years before Jazz started hunting, his father was still on the loose. This is the story of the small town sheriff who captured one of the world’s most ruthless and cunning murderers.
It all started with Dead Girl #1 and Dead Girl #2, the first killings in the sleepy town of Lobo’s Nod in decades. Two murders: just a coincidence, or something more sinister? One thing’s for sure — it was definitely inconvenient in a year when Sheriff G. William Tanner, a mourning widower, had to run for reelection.
With a trail gone cold, it’s only luck that links the murders to the most notorious serial killer in memory. And in a town like Lobo’s Nod, the killer must be someone Tanner already knows….
Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga is scheduled for a September 9, 2014 release from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. Add it to your TBR list and let me know what titles you think I should add to mine!
