Magic of Wind and Mist by Cassandra Rose Clarke (October 24, 2017 by Saga Press)
This is actually a two-novel volume containing the books of the Hanna Duology. Sadly I never got to check out book one The Wizard’s Promise back when it was first published by Strange Chemistry, right before the imprint’s shutdown. After that, it got hard to justify picking it up when the fate of the sequel was in question, as much as I adore CRC. But now, Saga Press has given the series a new home…and book two The Nobleman’s Revenge is finally happening! It will be included with the first book in this omnibus, which I’ll most definitely be checking out.
Hanna has spent her life hearing about the adventures of her namesake Ananna, the lady pirate, and assassin Naji, and dreams to have some adventures of her own.
One day when Hanna is with her apprentice—a taciturn fisherman called Kolur—the boat is swept wildly off course during a day of storms and darkness. In this strange new land, Kolur hires a stranger to join the crew and, rather than heading home, sets a course for the dangerous island of Jadanvar. As Hanna meets a secretive merboy—and learns that Kolur has a deadly past—she soon realizes that wishing for adventures can be deadly…because those wishes might come true.”
