Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week the novel I am anxiously awaiting for is….
The first in a thrilling new four-book fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author Cinda Williams Chima, set in the same world as her beloved Seven Realms series, a generation later
Adrian sul’Han, known as Ash, is a trained healer with a powerful gift of magic—and a thirst for revenge. Ash is forced into hiding after a series of murders throws the queendom into chaos. Now Ash is closer than he’s ever been to killing the man responsible, the cruel king of Arden. As a healer, can Ash use his powers not to save a life but to take it?
Abandoned at birth, Jenna Bandelow was told that the mysterious magemark on the back of her neck would make her a target. But when the King’s Guard launches a relentless search for a girl with a mark like hers, Jenna assumes that it has more to do with her role as a saboteur than any birth-based curse. Though Jenna doesn’t know why she’s being hunted, she knows that she can’t get caught.
Eventually, Ash’s and Jenna’s paths will collide in Arden. Thrown together by chance and joined by their hatred of the king, they will come to rescue each other in ways they cannot yet imagine.
Set in the world of the acclaimed Seven Realms series a generation later, this is a thrilling story of dark magic, chilling threats, and two unforgettable characters walking a knife-sharp line between life and death.
Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
To be Released on April 5th by HarperCollins.
I’m not sure if we’ve already featured Flamecaster as a WOW, but I don’t care. I am SO EXCITED for this book. I have heard, though, that you need to have read all of the Seven Realms books before you read this. So, of course, I already have a copy of this but am unable to start it until I convince myself to read the last Seven Realms book, because I don’t want to be spoiled. It’s SO HARD, though, because I know the last Seven Realms book is probably going to make me cry…..It’s also been a long time since I’ve read books 1, 2, & 3…… I’m so excited for this one, though! I’m probably going to start book 4 this month if I get some extra free time! (laughs hysterically at that thought!)
Make sure you go read EVERYTHING by Cinda Williams Chima! Seriously…..she never disappoints!
