WoW: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge (Paul Krueger)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge: A Novel
Title: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge
Author: Paul Krueger
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: Quirk Books
A sharp and funny urban fantasy for “new adults” about a secret society of bartenders who fight monsters with alcohol fueled magic.

College grad Bailey Chen has a few demons: no job, no parental support, and a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend who’s around when she moves back home. But when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monster-fighting bartenders, her demons get a lot more literal. Like, soul-sucking hell-beast literal. Soon, it’s up to Bailey and the ragtag band of magical mixologists to take on whatever—or whoever—is behind the mysterious rash of gruesome deaths in Chicago, and complete the lost recipes of an ancient tome of cocktail lore.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: Finally a New Adult book that's not completely about relationships, and a fantasy to boot!! (Urban fantasy, granted, but I'll take it.) And with such a unique magic system, and a secret society thrown in for good measure, I'm stoked to finally give New Adult a try with this title!

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. I can't wait to read this one either. Great choice!

  2. Sounds really interesting ~ Hope you enjoy it!
