The Time Will Come #1

The Time Will Come is a new weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company every Thursday, which spotlights a book that we've had for ages and really want to read/keep meaning to get to. This idea is perfect for me because I've got lots!
My Time Will Come choice this week is 'The Fetch' by Laura Whitcomb. I've had this book sat on my shelves for about a year and a half now, and still haven't got to it yet. I asked for this book for my birthday (last year) with only really a vague idea of what it was about- but I absolutely loved Laura Whitcomb's other YA book 'A Certain Slant of Light', and seeing that this one was supernatural and had a forbidden love story to it I was sold. It's a beautiful hardback book as well, with an embossed cover and deckled pages, that is sadly gathering dust on my bookshelf while I'm too busy lining up newer books to read. One day I will pick up this lovely book, and hopefully write a review on it... eventually!

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Calder is a Fetch, a death escort, the first of his kind to step from Heaven back to Earth.The first to fall in love with a mortal girl. But when he climbs backwards out of that Death Scene, into the chaos of the Russian Revolution, he tears a wound in the ghost realm, where the spirits begin a revolution of their own.

  1. I've just been to check this one out. I'd not heard of it before you mentioned it here. Sounds really good and I loved A Certain Slant of Light too.
