I started this book Friday night and was sorry I’d made any other plans for the weekend. This novel isn’t out until January, which is driving me crazy because I just want people to READ IT.

Julie at BookPeople is just a little bit excited about Descent, the upcoming novel by Tim Johnston. More than a little bit. A lot. Whoa, excited! Get caught up in the rest of Julie’s excitement in her blog post for Austin’s finest, BookPeople.

Can’t say that we blame her. Descent is one heckuva read!
