I Can't Wait for... Ebony Gate by Julia Vee & Ken Bebelle (Can't-Wait Wednesday) #CWW #WOW #booktwitter #newbooks #fantasy @torbooks

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. Find out more here.

I need to apologize for completely missing last week! The end of school was crazy and then plans I had were changed a bunch of times and my whole week just ended up being all over the place. That's the first time I've missed like that and I plan on it being the only time.

This one had me at the tagline, although I love the cover as well and obviously that's what grabbed my attention first. It's my pick this week...

Julia Vee and Ken Bebelle's Ebony Gate is a female John Wick story with dragon magic set in contemporary San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Emiko Soong belongs to one of the eight premier magical families of the world. But Emiko never needed any magic. Because she is the Blade of the Soong Clan. Or was. Until she’s drenched in blood in the middle of a market in China, surrounded by bodies and the scent of blood and human waste as a lethal perfume.

The Butcher of Beijing now lives a quiet life in San Francisco, importing antiques. But when a shinigami, a god of death itself, calls in a family blood debt, Emiko must recover the Ebony Gate that holds back the hungry ghosts of the Yomi underworld. Or forfeit her soul as the anchor.

What's a retired assassin to do but save the City by the Bay from an army of the dead?
