This week, I'm waiting on...
as Silas eagerly explores his father’s town and its many abandoned
streets and overgrown cemeteries, he grows increasingly wary of his
uncle. There is something not quite right going on in Charles Umber’s
ornate, museum-like house—something, Silas is sure, that is connected to
his father’s disappearance. When Silas’s search leads him to his
father’s old office, he comes across a powerful artifact: the Death
Watch, a four hundred year old Hadean clock that allows the owner to see
Death Watch in hand, Silas begins to unearth
Lichport’s secret history—and discovers that he has taken on his
father’s mantle as Lichport’s Undertaker. Now, Silas must embark on a
dangerous path into the Shadowlands to embrace his destiny and discover
the truth about his father—no matter the cost."
How amazing and intriguing does that sound? I'm also digging the Death-Note-like cover, and okay, fine, if I have to be totally honest, half the reason I want to read this is that it looks like Death Note.
