I have been buying books like they're going out of style (not anymore, thanks to the new Amazon Book Store in Seattle!!), so I DO have some time before my pick for this week's WoW comes out...
Title: Revenge and the Wild
Author: Michelle Modesto
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Expected Publiction: February 2, 2016
Synopsis (via goodreads.com):The two-bit town of Rogue City is a lawless place, full of dark magic and saloon brawls, monsters and six-shooters. But it’s perfect for seventeen-year-old Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.
Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.
But Westie’s search ceases when a wealthy family comes to town looking to invest in Nigel’s latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold—which Rogue City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start to fail. There’s only one problem: the investors look exactly like the family who murdered Westie’s kin. With the help of Nigel’s handsome but scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt. But if she’s not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the family she has now.
This thrilling novel is a remarkable tale of danger and discovery, from debut author Michelle Modesto.
I'm sorry, but as if that's not squee-worthy!! A sci-fi western YA. I think I saw this on a WoW a few W's ago, and damn if I couldn't not add it to my TBR!! Couldn't not. I only have a few hundred books to read before Groundhog's Day, but that shouldn't be a problem!! O.o
WoW me, WoW'ers! And I'll check out your WoW's!!...Wow... that was... a lot....
