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 new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author.
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.
To Be Released: August 9th, 2016
OH MY GOD JUST GIVE IT TO ME NOW! How fantastic does this book sound? Also, how creepily awesome is that cover? And it’s by Jay Kristoff? ENOUGH SAID, TAKE MY MONEY. If you have read the Stormdancer series (I would also say Illuminae but I haven’t read it yet-bad Pavan) you probably don’t even need me to say why I am excited by this book. I honestly cannot wait to read this!
