Waiting on Wednesday (25)...



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.





This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is: Dust City by Robert Paul Weston

Publication Date: September 30, 2010

Synopsis:
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

His son, that's who.


Ever since his father's arrest for the murder of Little Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves . . . until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe his father may have been framed.

Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate, Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City: a rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved by everyone and controlled by a dangerous mob of Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner.

Can Henry solve the mystery of his family's sinister past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined for life as a big bad wolf?

I am looking forward to this fairy tale retelling of sorts.

Swords are for fighting,

  3. I hadn't heard of this one before and it sounds awesome!! I really love it when people put a new twist on an old tale =) Plus, this kind of reminds me of that SyFy show Alice - have you seen it? Except they drink potions of emotions (say that 5 times fast) instead of fairydust. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this!
