Waiting on Wednesday: The Thirteen Hallows by Michael Scott and Colette Freedman

>>Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine. Here's a great looking upcoming release. The premise sounds fantastic and the cover is gorgeous!


Title: The Thirteen Hallows
Authors: Michael Scott and Colette Freedman
Publication Date: December 6th, 2011
Publisher: Tor Books

From Goodreads:

The Hallows. Ancient artifacts imbued with a primal and deadly power. But are they protectors of this world, or the keys to its destruction? 

A gruesome murder in London reveals a sinister plot to uncover a two-thousand-year-old secret.

For decades, the Keepers guarded these Hallows, keeping them safe and hidden and apart from each other. But now the Keepers are being brutally murdered, their prizes stolen, the ancient objects bathed in their blood. Now, only a few remain.

With her dying breath, one of the Keepers convinces Sarah Miller, a practical stranger, to deliver her Hallow—a broken sword with devastating powers—to her American nephew, Owen.  
The duo quickly become suspects in a series of murders as they are chased by both the police and the sadistic Dark Man and his nubile mistress. 

As Sarah and Owen search for the surviving Keepers, they unravel the deadly secret the Keepers were charged to protect. The mystery leads Sarah and Owen on a cat-and-mouse chase through England and Wales, and history itself, as they discover that the sword may be the only thing standing between the world… nd a horror beyond imagining.  

The Thirteen Hallows is the beginning of a spellbinding new saga, a thrilling tale of ancient magic and modern times by a New York Times bestselling author and an award-winning playwright.

  1. I see we have some very similar reading tastes. Don't you love Sharon Kay Penman. I hated it when her mystery series was dropped.

  2. The premise sounds really interesting, but I'm always wary of books with multiple authors. I think I might wait to read some reviews on this one. Great pick!
