Waiting on Wednesday–Delia’s Shadow


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!

Delia’s Shadow

by Jaime Lee Moyer

Published by Tor

Date Published – 9/17/2013

A dark, romantic fantasy set against the backdrop of San Francisco devastated by the Great Quake

It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side.

Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest.

It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again.
And who is now aware of Delia’s existence


This sounds absolutely amazing. What makes me so anxious to read Delia’s Shadow is that it is a combination of several of my favorite genres; historical fiction, ghost story, and serial killer thriller. Plus it just sounds deliciously dark & gothic, and definitely something I want to read.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

YES! I love the sound of this book too. I've been appreciating historical fiction a lot more lately, and I love that this has a dark and gothic touch to it too. And it's blurbed by Rae Carson? I can't belive I only just noticed that! I can't wait to pick this up. :)
