Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -

Hot Lead, Cold Iron - Ari Marmell
ISBN - 9781781168226
Publisher - Titan
Expected release date - May 13th 2014
Find - Goodreads/Book Depository

Hot Lead, Cold Iron is the first novel in a brand-new fantasy detective series that will appeal to fans of Rivers of London and The Dresden Files 

'Chicago, 1932. Mick Oberon may look like just another private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he's got pointy ears and he's packing a wand.

Oberon's used to solving supernatural crimes, but the latest one's extra weird. A mobster's daughter was kidnapped sixteen years ago, replaced with a changeling, and Mick's been hired to find the real child. The trail's gone cold, but what there is leads Sideways, to the world of the Fae, where the Seelie Court rules. And Mick's not really welcome in the Seelie Court any more. He'll have to wade through Fae politics and mob power struggles to find the kidnapper – and of course it's the last person he expected.'

Every now and then I come across a book that sounds like it's been written just for me. Hot Lead, Cold Iron is one such book and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! What sold me? This part of the synopsis, 'beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he's got pointy ears and he's packing a wand' and had me itching to read the whole book now! I'm already a fan of Ari Marmell, I read Thief's Covenant back in 2012 when it first came out when a friend let me borrow her copy as I'd forgotten to bring a book with me (le gasp of horror, this never happens!). I've been waiting for it to come out in paperback along with the next books in the series but so far no luck, I may well have to concede and buy the hardcovers... Back to Hot Lead, Cold Iron - it's the start of a series (yes!), for fans of Rivers of London (yes!) and The Dresden Files (yes!) so if you too are a fan of both/either then add this to your wishlists! Yet another Titan title I'm impatiently waiting for :)
