Waiting on Wednesday: The Glass Casket

The Glass Casket
Author: McCormick Templeman 
Publisher: Delacourt Press
Expected Publication: Feb 11, 2014

Death hasn’t visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders’ bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.
Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.
Rowan’s village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan’s door once again.

My Thoughts: This novel sounds deliciously creepy! I'm intrigued by who exactly death is going to take form Rowan and what it means for the village. Hopefully the novel is just as eerie as the cover. 


  1. I haven't heard of this one before, but "deliciously creepy" is a really good way of putting it! The blurb has hooked me. I love haunting premises :D

  2. The synopsis sounds really good but I don't really get how the cover fits with it? Maybe all will be explained inside!

    Here's our WoW!

  3. This sounds awesome and it's a fairy tale retelling (of sorts, at least), and I LOVE fairy tales!
