Now this is the kind of thing that I like to hear...

I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't be posting this if I hadn't seen Mihai post about it first. Thanks for being so on the ball Mihai! :o)

I loved Alden Bell's 'The Reapers are the Angels', absolutely loved it, but never thought I'd see another book in the same setting (given how it all ended...) Shows how wrong I can be... September will see Tor UK release 'Exit Kingdom', a prequel to 'The Reapers are the Angels' that focuses on the story of a main character from that book. I'm in and you should be too. Check out the blurb,

In a world where the undead outnumber the living, Moses Todd roams the post-apocalyptic plains of America. His reprobate brother, Abraham - his only companion - has known little else. Together, they journey because they have to; because they have nowhere to go, and no one to answer to other than themselves. Travelling the bloody wastelands of this ruined world, Moses is looking for a kernel of truth, and a reason to keep going. And a chance encounter presents him with the Vestal Amata, a beguiling and mysterious woman who may hold the key to salvation. But he is not the only one seeking the Vestal. For the Vestal has a gift: a gift that might help save what is left of humanity. And it may take everything he has to free her from the clutches of those who most desire her.

Publication is a few months off but that gives everyone who hasn't read 'Reapers' time to get all caught up with the rest of us. The month of September just got even better than it already is... :o)

The Reapers has been on my wishlist a while - you've just prompted me to finally buy it!

Thanks for the heads-up, Graham. Loved the Reapers are the Angels, so am looking forward to this. Also - and I did mean to say this earlier - all the very best luck with the job-hunting front. It's tough everywhere right now, but your cheerful posts are a good example to us all on how to carry on, and not let things grind us down.

Loved The Reapers but Temples voice was so beguiling that it will be hard for Moses Todd to keep me as intrested but if any one can do that Mr Gaylord can.
