Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
The Dire King
by William Ritter

hitting shelves August 22d, 2017
from Algonquin Young Readers
The fate of the world is in the hands of detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook. An evil king is turning ancient tensions into modern strife, using a blend of magic and technology to push Earth and the Otherworld into a mortal competition. Jackaby and Abigail are caught in the middle as they continue to solve the daily mysteries of New Fiddleham, New England — like who’s created the rend between the worlds, how to close it, and why zombies are appearing around. At the same time, the romance between Abigail and the shape-shifting police detective Charlie Cane deepens, and Jackaby’s resistance to his feelings for 926 Augur Lane’s ghostly lady, Jenny, begins to give way. Before the four can think about their own futures, they will have to defeat an evil that wants to destroy the future altogether.

The epic conclusion to the New York Times best-selling Jackaby series features sly humor and a quirky cast of unforgettable characters as they face off against their most dangerous, bone-chilling foe ever.

My thoughts:  Eeeee! We have a cover..we have an awesome synopsis...and..."epic conclusion??? Nooooo. I love this fun series and I would easily have welcomed 3 or 4 more. Not ready to reach the end. Still, very much looking forward to this book. Haven't read them yet? You can check out my previous reviews here, here, and here to convince you that YOU MUST. :)

What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
