Waiting On Wednesday #85 - Gleam

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 -

Gleam - Tom Fletcher
ISBN - 9781848662520
Publisher - Jo Fletcher Books
Expected release date - September 4th 2014

In this Gormenghastian world the Factory is the law – but that does not
mean justice.
The Gargantuan factory of Gleam has seen a millennia of decreasing population. Now the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard; the home of Wild Alan. He’s convinced that the Gleam authorities were behind the disaster that killed his parents and his ambition is to prove it. But he’ll uncover more secrets than he bargained for. - Goodreads

As soon as I read 'this Gormenghastian world' this book went straight onto my wishlist! I love the Gormenghast books and how weird they are so if this is half as good as I'm expecting I shall probably love it. I've also read The Leaping, The Thing on the Shore and The Ravenglass Eye by the same author, a perfectly creepy horror trilogy with some great writing so I've been looking forward to seeing what came next.
