Waiting on Wednesday – Touch

November 26, 2014

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.

So, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August just didn’t quite work for me. So, why am I waiting on a new book by that author? Because when it came down to it, it was the concept that didn’t work for me, I actually quite enjoyed North’s prose. So, this book sounds much more interesting to me than the other one. In fact, it sounds like it could be an amazing and exciting story. Really looking forward to reading it when I get the chance.

Expected Publication: February 24, 2015 by Orbit Books

Kepler had never meant to die this way — viciously beaten to death by a stinking vagrant in a dark back alley. But when reaching out to the murderer for salvation in those last dying moments, a sudden switch takes place.

Now Kepler is looking out through the eyes of the killer himself, staring down at a broken and ruined body lying in the dirt of the alley.

Instead of dying, Kepler has gained the ability to roam from one body to another, to jump into another person’s skin and see through their eyes, live their life — be it for a few minutes, a few months or a lifetime.

Kepler means these host bodies no harm — and even comes to cherish them intimately like lovers. But when one host, Josephine Cebula, is brutally assassinated, Kepler embarks on a mission to seek the truth — and avenge Josephine’s death.
