Waiting on Wednesday #111: The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week the book I am waiting on is The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden. It's due out November 17, 2015 from Skyscape.

Synopsis from

Revised edition: This edition of The Casquette Girls includes editorial revisions.

Seven girls tied by time.
Five powers that bind.
One curse to lock the horror away.
One attic to keep the monsters at bay.


After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne wants nothing more than her now silent city to return to normal. But with home resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition. 

As the city murder rate soars, Adele finds herself tangled in a web of magic that weaves back to her own ancestors. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, who can she trust when everyone has a secret and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless . . . you’re immortal.

Why am I waiting on this book? 
The early reviews look really good. For example: ★ “In this Southern Gothic love letter, Arden spins a moody tale of magic and mystery. A thoroughly satisfying page-turner. A strong debut.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review.  And, I'm a sucker for Southern Gothic.
