Can't Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday #352: The Conductors by Nicole Glover


Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event that had been hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlighted upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. I'm now linking up with "Can't-Wait Wednesday" hosted over at Wishful Endings.

As an escaped slave, Hetty Rhodes helped dozens of people find their own freedom north using her wits and her magic. Now that the Civil War is over, Hetty and her husband, Benjy, still fight for their people by solving the murders and mysteries that the white authorities won't touch.

When they discover one of their friends brutally murdered in an alley, Hetty and Benjy mourn his loss by setting off to find answers. But the mystery of his death soon brings up more questions, more secrets, more hurt. To solve his death, they will have to not only face the ugly truths about the world but the ones about each other.

Perfect for fans of Victor LaValle and Zen Cho, The Conductors is a compelling debut by a fresh voice in fantasy fiction that will leave you longing for more.

The Conductors by Nicole Glover is expected out March 4th, 2021 from Del Rey.

Why am I waiting on this book? I like the idea of mysteries and magic in the same story. I don't think I've read a fantasy type book set in this time period from quite this angle before. I find the originality intriguing.

What book are you waiting on this week? Share it or a link in the comments so we can check it out and maybe add it to our TBR lists. Thanks for coming by and Happy Reading!


  1. This is one I am eager to read too, Laura. Like you, I am not sure I've read a book like this in that particular setting, that adds to my interest in giving it a try. I hope we both enjoy it when we read it!

    1. Me too! I'm also waiting on one of your picks, The Wife Upstairs. Hope we both enjoy that one too!
