Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Angel of the Crows by Katherine Addison

A fascinating sounding historical fantasy alternate world

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

The Angel of the Crows

by Katherine Addison

Series: Unknown

Published by Tor Books

Publication date: June 23

Genre: Historical Fantasy, Alternate World

Synopsis: This is not the story you think it is. These are not the characters you think they are. This is not the book you are expecting.

In an alternate 1880s London, angels inhabit every public building, and vampires and werewolves walk the streets with human beings under a well-regulated truce. A fantastic utopia, except for a few things: Angels can Fall, and that Fall is like a nuclear bomb in both the physical and metaphysical worlds. And human beings remain human, with all their kindness and greed and passions and murderous intent.

Jack the Ripper stalks the streets of this London too. But this London has an Angel. The Angel of the Crows.

I’ve read at least one book by Katherine Addison and this sounds fascinating!

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I’ve seen this one around and am very tempted but historically have not had the best luck with angel-based books. I’ll see what you have to say about it first! Great choice though and the cover is lovely.

  2. The world building in this sounds like it will be phenomenal. I hadn’t heard of this before, but it’s going on my wishlist right now. I hope you love it when you read it. Happy Reading!
