Drum roll please…!
Well, well, well! Certainly been waiting awhile for this one! Since my initial post about this title, I have stalked the pages of author Kirby Crow’s personal page and GoodReads account for updates. This was a VERY welcome surprise! Definitely getting me all anxious and excited for the next installment to the Scarlet and the White Wolf series TBR October of this year.
Hammer and Bone is slated for next year, March 2nd, published by Riptide Press, in both eBook and Print format. It’ll be 250 pages of delightful fun. …I hope. *fingers crossed*
Here’s the latest change of synopsis info:
“The purest evil lives in the hearts of men.
Carnival mystics. Zombie tribes. Bad magic in the Bayou. Mage-princes, alien cities, and soul-stealing priests. The grim monsters in the worlds of these dark, speculative tales are true horrors, but it’s the people you should fear the most.
People like Michel, a boy pining for his best friend, Ray. But a presence in the swamp calls Michel to avenge another lost love, and he must decide which summons to answer. Or Angelo, a prescient cop who denies his visions until they endanger the man he loves. Or Bellew, an overseer in a shantytown of criminals sheltering a revenant and feeding it from their ranks.
From ruined lands of steam and iron, to haunted Southern forests, to brutal city streets where hope and damnation flow from the same spring, only a few stubborn souls possess the heart to challenge evil on its own terms. Some wield magic, some turn to rage or even love, but the ones left standing will survive only if they find the courage to carve their own paths to freedom.
Even if it means carving through flesh.”
