Can’t-Wait Wednesday: No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell Turnbull

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.

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.

I have yet to read any of this author’s work however he was at a local book event a couple of years ago and I’ve been keen to check out his writing ever since. I like stories that have a more literary bent to them sometimes, books with strong themes and that make you think, and I think this will definitely be one of those. Very much looking forward to this. No Gods, No Monsters is expected September 7th, 2021.

    I love that question about what frightened the monsters out of the dark – it’s just so creepy isn’t it? Like, if it can frighten the monsters what’s it going to do to everyone else.
