Can’t Wait Wednesday #36: The Lantern’s Ember by Colleen Houck

January 17, 2018 Uncategorized 18

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight
and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on
Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  My pick this week is by an author that I’m a fan of another series she’s written.  When I saw she had a new book coming out, I was very excited.  I’ve been waiting for the cover to be released to do one of these posts, and the author sent it out this week.  So here you go:


Welcome to a world where nightmarish creatures reign supreme.

Five hundred years ago, Jack made a deal with the devil. It’s difficult for him to remember much about his mortal days. So, he focuses on fulfilling his sentence as a Lantern—one of the watchmen who guard the portals to the Otherworld, a realm crawling with every nightmarish creature imaginable. Jack has spent centuries jumping from town to town, ensuring that nary a mortal—or not-so-mortal—soul slips past him. That is, until he meets beautiful Ember O’Dare. 

Seventeen, stubborn, and a natural-born witch, Ember feels a strong pull to the Otherworld. Undeterred by Jack’s warnings, she crosses into the forbidden plane with the help of a mysterious and debonair vampire—and the chase through a dazzling, dangerous world is on. Jack must do everything in his power to get Ember back where she belongs before both the earthly and unearthly worlds descend into chaos.

Have you read anything by this author?  How does this one sound to you?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    This cover is amazing! I have not read Houck's other series, but I think I may have a copy of the first book. I'll have to add this to the list!
