Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is the weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I am eagerly waiting for... 
The Gray Wolf Throne  
(Seven Realms Series, Book 3) 

It's been a long time since I've come across such good 'coming of age' / 'sword & sorcery' kind of story. I found the characters charming and easy to relate to, the villains are hate worthy, and the plot is driven. The narrative just grabs you and won't let go until you've finished the whole 500+ pages. This is the third in the series, so go grab the first two (The Demon King and The Exiled Queen) and get ready for the release on August 30!

Summary from Goodreads: 
Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisa ana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.

Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it—he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron-hard will to survive—and even that might not be enough.

The Gray Wolf Throne is an epic tale of fierce loyalty, unbearable sacrifice, and the heartless hand of fate.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, new follower. I read the 'Heir Chronicles' Trilogy by the same author, but not this one. I'll give it a try.
