I’m following Bookshelf Fantasies‘ lead by doing my Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday post for two fabulous book memes, Wishlist Wednesday (hosted by Pen to Paper) and Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine).
Today I’m waiting for Long Black Curl by Alex Bledsoe, with an expected publication date of 5/26/15. This is the third novel in his rural fantasy series about the Tufa, a mysterious group of people — or ?? — living in the hills in Tennesee. The books are infused with music and Appalachia and magic, and are the most wonderful antidote to too much urban fantasy.
I think you could jump in anywhere in the series, or start with the first book, The Hum and the Shiver.
