Hot on the heels of the acclaimed first book in the series, Fire & Rain comes book two, Water & Wind. John F. D.

Josh Malerman (Bird Box) says “The Fearing isn’t only John F.D. Taff’s best book to date, it’s the kind you put on the shelf reserved for the ones that really did something to you, emotionally, intellectually, physically.” The Fearing Book Two: Water & Wind is available for pre-order now.
