New series by 'Double Dead' and 'Blackbirds' writer to debut in 2013

From the press release...

Don't look up. Don't send your prayers skyward. Because the gods aren't in the sky. They're here. All of them.
After publishing Chuck Wendig’s debut novel Double Dead, in 2011 Abaddon Books is proud to announce that it is set to publish a brand new title from the inimitable author of Blackbirds.
Gods and Monsters: Unclean Spirits, the first title in a brand new shared world series, will debut in summer 2013 with Wendig’s characteristically sharp, take-no-prisoners style sure to win him even more fans.
Exiled to Earth, the gods now walk amongst us, bringing with them their children and their servants and their monsters. Their power is a mere fraction of what it once was, but even a mote of divine magic is awesome - in the truest sense of the word.
Cason Cole knows this firsthand. He's been serving the gods for the better part of a decade, their leash fastened tight around his neck. But when his most recent divine master gets killed - a thing Cason didn't even know could happen - he finds himself once more a free man. All he's got left is a burning need for vengeance against the very gods who forced him to kneel, but he'll soon discover that getting revenge against the gods is no easy feat. He'll have to put his life, love, sanity and soul on the line. Will he pay the cost? How priceless is his wrath?

I am all over this new series when it comes out. Chuck Wendig has done right by me with the books of his that I've read ('Double Dead', 'Blackbirds', started reading 'Mockingbird' last night...) so I'm looking forward to more of the same. Don't let me down Chuck... ;o)

P.S. Because Joey Hi-Fi's covers are consistently awesome, here's the cover art for 'Mockingbird'...

 Told you it was awesome :o)

I loved Blackbirds, so this news has me excited. The cover for Mockingbird is great, but Blackbirds really knocked it out of the park.
