Time for some mid-week fun with Waiting on Wednesday. This meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, looks ahead at the books we’re looking forward to adding to our to-be-read pile.
Listening to the first couple of installments of Tor Studio’s Steal the Stars (if you haven’t listened yet, give it a try!), there was an ad for David Mack‘s The Midnight Front. It sounds like an intriguing blend of lots of different things I like. And I’ve read a lot of Mack’s Star Trek tie-in novels and enjoyed them.
This one will be a two-for-one for Sci-Fi Month!
Here’s what Goodreads has to say about The Midnight Front.
The epic first novel in the Dark Arts series.
On the eve of World War Two, Nazi sorcerers come gunning for Cade but kill his family instead. His one path of vengeance is to become an apprentice of The Midnight Front–the Allies’ top-secret magickal warfare program–and become a sorcerer himself.
Unsure who will kill him first–his allies, his enemies, or the demons he has to use to wield magick–Cade fights his way through occupied Europe and enemy lines. But he learns too late the true price of revenge will be more terrible than just the loss of his soul–and there’s no task harder than doing good with a power born of ultimate evil
The Midnight Front hits shelves and e-readers in January 2018.
