Waiting on Wednesday: A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is A DARKNESS STRANGE AND LOVELY by Susan Dennard.   It releases on July 23, 2013 from Harper Teen.

Following an all-out battle with the walking Dead, the Spirit Hunters have fled Philadelphia, leaving Eleanor alone to cope with the devastating aftermath. But there’s more trouble ahead—the evil necromancer Marcus has returned, and his diabolical advances have Eleanor escaping to Paris to seek the help of Joseph, Jie, and the infuriatingly handsome Daniel once again. When she arrives, however, she finds a whole new darkness lurking in this City of Light. As harrowing events unfold, Eleanor is forced to make a deadly decision that will mean life or death for everyone.
I am just loving the covers for this series.  The dresses and the colors are gorgeous!  Something Strange and Deadly was my first zombie book, and it was my first brush with steampunk.  I was saddened a bit by the ending of the first book, so I am very excited to see what happens next and if things get better!
