This week I am waiting on. . . 

Devils Unto Dust
By: Emma Berquist
Publisher: Greenwillow
Release Date: April 10, 2018

Ten years ago, a horrifying disease began spreading across the West Texas desert. Infected people—shakes—attacked the living and created havoc and destruction. No one has ever survived the infection. Daisy Wilcox, known as Willie, has been protecting her siblings within the relatively safe walls of Glory, Texas. When Willie’s good-for-nothing father steals a fortune from one of the most dangerous shake-hunters in town, she finds herself on the hook for his debt. With two hunters, including the gruff and handsome Ben, to accompany her, she sets out across the desert in search of her father. But the desert is not kind to travelers, and not everyone will pass through alive.

Western meets horror for this riveting story about survival, family, and inner strength. Tense, short chapters propel readers from one action-packed scene to the next, while Willie’s distinctive, introspective voice deepens the emotional stakes with every turn of the page. High concept and character-driven, Emma Berquist’s debut will satisfy fans of The Magnificent Seven, Rae Carson’s Walk on Earth a Stranger, and HBO’s Westworld.


  1. Oooo, I think I just saw this book on Edelweiss! It was the first I'd seen the book. It definitely sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Andrea. =)

    1. I also saw it on Edelweiss and was able to get an ARC. I won't be able to read it until the new year, but it sounds like a fabulous read.
