Waiting on Wednesday 11/15/17

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Moon Rising by Ian McDonald (July 31, 2018 by Tor Books)

In honor of Sci-Fi November, I’m featuring sci-fi picks for my Waiting on Wednesday posts this month. Up next is the third book of Ian McDonald’s Luna series, which has been described by many as “Game of Thrones on the Moon”. What most of us thought was a duology turned out to require one more book to round out the ending, and this is the highly anticipated conclusion we’ve been waiting for.

“The continuing saga of the Moon’s Five Dragons, already under option from CBS, a fast-paced, intricately plotted space opera pitched as Game of Thrones meets The Expanse

A hundred years in the future, a war wages between the Five Dragons—five families that control the Moon’s leading industrial companies. Each clan does everything in their power to claw their way to the top of the food chain—marriages of convenience, corporate espionage, kidnapping, and mass assassinations. 

Through ingenious political manipulation and sheer force of will, Lucas Cortas rises from the ashes of corporate defeat and seizes control of the Moon. The only person who can stop him is a brilliant lunar lawyer, his sister, Ariel.

Witness the Dragons’ final battle for absolute sovereignty in Ian McDonald’s heart-stopping finale to the Luna trilogy.”

  1. OOh intriguing pick! That’s a new to me one! I’m always a little hesitant about space books because they can be confusing for me sometimes. I hope you will love this one once you read it!
