Jill at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
I am always a fan of a good zombie story and DEAD RECKONING by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill seems to pique my interest and have an original edge that I admire.  I cannot wait to have this delicious read in my hands. Now that you know my WoW I am ever curious to know what is yours?

Coming 06/05/12
by Mercedes LackeyRosemary Edghill

ISBN-13: 978-1599906843
Bloomsbury USA CH, 336 pages.

The sun rises in the east . . . but the dead rise in the West in this fantastic zombie-western mashup!

Jett is a girl passing as a boy, living as a cowboy in the old West as she searches for her long-lost brother. When the book opens, she's just rolled into a new town, where she stops by the saloon. Things are relatively calm, although she suspects there will be Trouble from at least one of the locals. Sure enough, Trouble starts to mosey over, when-- 

The saloon is invaded by zombies.

Barely escaping with her life, Jett hightails it out of town and soon falls into the company of Honoria Gibbons, a smart, self-sufficient young woman who also happens to be a fabulous inventor. Together with White Fox, a young man they meet, they set out to discover what's caused the zombie uprising. Turns out these zombies aren't rising from the dead of their own accord… but who would want an undead army? And why?

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
