Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine. Here is another Angry Robot upcoming release that caught my attention!
Title: The Alchemist of Souls
Author: Anne Lyle
Publication Date: February 28th, 2012
Publisher: Angry Robot
When Tudor explorers returned from the New World, they brought back a name out of half-forgotten Viking legend: skraylings. Red-sailed ships followed in the explorers’ wake, bringing Native American goods--and a skrayling ambassador--to London. But what do these seemingly magical beings really want in Elizabeth I’s capital?
Mal Catlyn, a down-at-heel swordsman, is seconded to the ambassador's bodyguard, but assassination attempts are the least of his problems. What he learns about the skraylings and their unholy powers could cost England her new ally--and Mal his soul.
