Can't Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday #357: No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell Turnbull


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.

One October morning, Laina gets the news that her brother was shot and killed by Boston cops. But what looks like a case of police brutality soon reveals something much stranger. Monsters are real. And they want everyone to know it.

As creatures from myth and legend come out of the shadows, seeking safety through visibility, their emergence sets off a chain of seemingly unrelated events. Members of a local werewolf pack are threatened into silence. A professor follows a missing friend's trail of bread crumbs to a mysterious secret society. And a young boy with unique abilities seeks refuge in a pro-monster organization with secrets of its own. Meanwhile, more people start disappearing, suicides and hate crimes increase, and protests erupt globally, both for and against the monsters.

At the center is a mystery no one thinks to ask: Why now? What has frightened the monsters out of the dark?

The world will soon find out.

No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell Turnbull is expected to be published September 7th, 2021 by Blackstone Publishing.

Why am I waiting on this book? I like the premise. What would happen if the monsters came out of the closet? And why would it be happening then? How would people react? What kind of consequences would follow this revelation?

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. It is a long wait, but it looks really good. Love the crow character in your pick this week!

  2. What an interesting premise! I love it and now I'm dying to know why the monsters chose now and what they want exactly. I hope you enjoy No Gods, No Monsters when you read it, Laura!

    1. Thanks! I hope you enjoy your picks as well. They sound thought provoking, especially the one about the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
