Waiting on Wednesday 12/24/14

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall: April 14, 2015 (Orbit)

No doubt you’ll see me talking about this book a lot more before its release date in April of next year. While I always try not to hype something up for myself to keep expectations realistic, I can’t help but be excited about this one, not the least because the handful of people I know whose opinions I value and who have read it already all loved it. It has been described to me as similar to Joe Abercrombie, and that if I like gritty stories and dark humor then I should be very pleased. It features a female warrior as its protagonist to boot!

It’s proving difficult to resist digging into the ARC right away, but the publisher has requested reviews to be held until at least a month before release so I’ll be reading this at a later date. Til then, I shall bide my time and patiently wait.

A Crown for Cold Silver“An outstanding, game-changing epic fantasy debut featuring an unforgettable female warrior.


Twenty years ago, feared general Cobalt Zosia led her five villainous captains and mercenary army into battle, wrestling monsters and toppling an empire. When there were no more titles to win and no more worlds to conquer, she retired and gave up her legend to history.

Now the peace she carved for herself has been shattered by the unprovoked slaughter of her village. Seeking bloody vengeance, Zosia heads for battle once more, but to find justice she must confront grudge-bearing enemies, once-loyal allies, and an unknown army that marches under a familiar banner.

A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER is an outstanding epic fantasy debut featuring an unforgettable warrior.”

  1. I have never been good at waiting. I have a couple reviews sitting in a folder until they are closer to review date. I foresee this one taking the same path.


    • I’m in the same boat – behind on books and behind on reviews. I’ll probably start digging into this one in February and take my time to savor it 🙂
