Pre-pub Book Buzz: The Watchtower by Lee Carroll

I'm a big fan of Carol Goodman and when I heard that she was teaming with her husband for a paranormal series, I did a little dance! I bought Black Swan Rising when it was released, and then lost it in the TBR stack. But found it again in May and read it as part of one of Literary Escapism's New Author Mini-Challenges. It was fantastic! So of course I was super excited to see that the second book would be coming in just a few months.

Well, that time is here! The Watchtower comes out this Tuesday (Aug 2) and I'm pre-ordering my copy.

Here's the synopsis on Amazon:

What secrets are hidden in her past . . . ?

Jewelry designer Garet James is still coming to terms with the astounding revelation in BLACK SWAN RISING that she is the last in a long line of women sworn to protect the world from evil. Now she has received a sign from Will Hughes, the 400-year-old vampire who once helped her defeat the evil threatening to destroy New York City. Hughes, tortured by his own violent history which is vividly reenacted here, has asked her to join him on a quest to rid himself of his curse of vampirism. While looking for Will in Paris, Garet encounters a number of mysterious figures-an ancient botanist metamorphosed into the oldest tree in Paris, a gnome who lives under the Labyrinth at the Jardin des Plantes, a librarian at the Institut Oceanographique, and a dryad in the Luxembourg Gardens.

Each encounter leads Garet closer to finding Will Hughes, but she realizes that she’s not the only one who’s trying to find the way to the magical world called the Summer Country. As Garet struggles to understand her family legacy, each answer she finds only leads to more questions—and to more danger.…

Yay! Seriously, Black Swan Rising was one of the best paranormals I've read in a while. I can't wait to get my hands on this one so I can continue the story!
