Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about but haven’t yet read. Most of the time they’re books that have yet to be released, but not always. It’s based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme, which was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

This week my Can’t-Wait-For Book is Wolf, Willow, Witch  by Freydís Moon!

A vicious romance imbued with magic, thievery, and necromancy…

When Tehlor Nilsen stumbles upon an abandoned corpse hidden in her friend’s empty house, she can’t ignore the energy lingering around the broken albeit familiar body. Entranced by the promise of ritualistic power, she seizes her chance to secure a vorðr. Miraculously, Hel, the goddess of death, grants Tehlor an audience.

But Lincoln Stone has no interest in becoming a magical sentry and raising him from the dead comes with violent consequences.

When a mysterious neo-church arrives in Gideon, Tehlor catches wind of a rare relic. Despite Lincoln's troubling enthusiasm for demonology, she strikes a deal with her unruly vorðr, hoping to mend their strained relationship…

Work together. Steal the Breath of Judas. Control the dead.

As the magically bound pair infiltrate Haven and their heist becomes a hunt, Tehlor isn't sure if she's the predator or prey…

Moon is one of my auto-buy authors – one who consistently proves that self-published books can be as epic or better than anything trad-pubbed! So far every book they’ve released has delighted me, and I don’t expect this one to break that winning streak.

Wolf, Willow, Witch is the second book in the Gideon Testaments trilogy. Book one, Heart, Haunt, Havoc, was awesome – all Catholic magic and exorcisms with deliciously complicated haunter-hauntee dynamics – and we met Tehlor in it, briefly. She made one Hel of an impression (sorry-not-sorry, I couldn’t resist) so I wasn’t shocked to hear she’d be starring in the sequel. She definitely deserves a book of her own!

But Lincoln? LINCOLN I WAS NOT EXPECTING TO SEE AGAIN! And I can already tell I’m going to be eating up his and Tehlor’s dynamic with a spoon.

M.E. Morgan knocked it out of the park again with the cover, which was revealed yesterday. I mean – hi, SO MUCH YES. But even without the gorgeous cover, that BLURB!!! A church heist and infiltrating Heaven?! HOW DO YOU INFILTRATE HEAVEN AND WHAT ARE THE RAMIFACATIONS OF THAT, PLEASE AND THANK YOU???

Bonus: we have been promised nothing bad will happen to Tehlor’s rat. I was pretty sure the rat would be okay, but it’s a relief to have confirmation.

Wolf, Willow, Witch releases in just under two weeks, which gives you plenty of time to read Heart, Haunt, Havoc if you haven’t already! If you’re into unapologetic queer supernatural-horror, this is definitely a series (and an author!) you should be keeping an eye on.
