Waiting on Wednesday: SCOWLER by Daniel Kraus

Jill at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.  I am always on the searching for a read that can get under my skin and SCOWLER by Daniel Kraus seems to be that book. I am a big fan of his work i.e. ROTTERS and upon meeting him this year I was informed of his newest novel due out early next year. Once I did my research by reading the synopsis and getting creeped out by the cover (hello! scary dude) I knew that I would be pining away for this book until it gets into my hands. Next year is soo far way.... Now that you know of my WoW, what is yours?

Imagine your father is a monster. Would that mean there are monsters inside you, too?

Nineteen-year-old Ry Burke, his mother, and little sister scrape by for a living on their dying family farm. Ry wishes for anything to distract him from the grim memories of his father's physical and emotional abuse. Then a meteorite falls from the sky, bringing with it not only a fragment from another world but also the arrival of a ruthless man intent on destroying the entire family. Soon Ry is forced to defend himself by resurrecting a trio of imaginary childhood protectors: kindly Mr. Furrington, wise Jesus, and the bloodthirsty Scowler.
