"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
This sequel to The Blackhope Enigma is imbued with alchemy and intrigue. During what seems like an ordinary museum visit, tour guide Throgmorton lures Sunni and Blaise through a painted doorway into eighteenth-century London. When Throgmorton demands secret information from the pair about their Blackhope escapades, they attempt to flee, encountering body snatchers, art thieves and forgers in this gripping time-travel adventure.
Why I can't wait to read it:
I really enjoyed Flavin's first novel, the Blackhope Enigma, which stood out in the crowded field of YA fantasy thanks to its unique setting of a world within a set of enchanted paintings, the glimpses we got of the police investigation into the children's disappearance, and a great dynamic between Blaise, Sunni, and painter Corvo's apprentic Marin which approached love triangle territory without focusing on the romance much. For my full review, take a look here (on the Bookbag) and if you like the look of it, grab it before October so you're ready for the sure-to-be fantastic sequel!
