Waiting on Wednesday (191)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

This week, I'm waiting on:

The Smoke Hunter by Jacquelyn Benson
Release date: September 13, 2016

Frustrated suffragette and would-be archaeologist Ellie Mallory stumbles across a map to a city that shouldn't exist, a jungle metropolis alive and flourishing centuries after the Mayan civilization mysteriously collapsed. Discovering it would make her career, but Ellie isn't the only one after the prize. A disgraced professor and his ruthless handler are hot on her heels, willing to go any extreme to acquire the map for themselves.

To race them through the uncharted jungle, Ellie needs a guide. The only one with the expertise is maverick surveyor Adam Bates. But with his determination to nose his way into Ellie's many secrets, Bates is a dangerous partner.

As Ellie gets closer to her goal, she realizes it's not just her ambitions at stake. A powerful secret lies hidden in the heart of the city - and if it falls into the wrong hands, it could shake the very fate of the world.

"Fans of spirited heroines, dashing heroes, and perilous mysteries will love this rollicking adventure. A thoroughly engaging debut!"—New York Times bestselling author Deanna Raybourn

I think this sounds like a fun adventure, similar to some of Deanna Raybourn's own novels. I can't wait!

    My WoW post.

  2. Yes! It does sound like a Deanna Raybourn novel. I love a good story that has romance and adventure. Thanks for putting this one on my radar!

  3. Ooh this looks good. Totally haven't heard of it but I like the synopsis, will look into. Sounds like maybe an Indiana Jones vibe?
