Waiting on Wednesday 02/07/18

“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!

For the Killing of Kings by Howard Andrew Jones (July 17, 2018 by St. Martin’s Press)

Howard Andrew Jones has written some very fun fantasy adventure novels, including a couple for Pathfinder Tales. His upcoming new trilogy sounds like another rollicking good time, having been described as a cross between Roger Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber and The Three Musketeers.

Their peace was a fragile thing, but it had endured for seven years, mostly because the people of Darassus and the king of the Naor hordes believed his doom was foretold upon the edge of the great sword hung in the hall of champions. Unruly Naor clans might raid across the border, but the king himself would never lead his people to war so long as the blade remained in the hands of his enemies.

But when squire Elenai’s aging mentor uncovers evidence that the sword in their hall is a forgery she’s forced to flee Darassus for her life, her only ally the reckless, disillusioned Kyrkenall the archer. Framed for murder and treason, pursued by the greatest heroes of the realm, they race to recover the real sword, only to stumble into a conspiracy that leads all the way back to the Darassan queen and her secretive advisors. They must find a way to clear their names and set things right, all while dodging friends determined to kill them – and the Naor hordes, invading at last with a new and deadly weapon.

Howard Andrew Jones’ powerful world-building brings this epic fantasy to life in this first book of his new adventure-filled trilogy.”

  2. Not familiar Howard Andrew Jones with at all, but I am loving the synopsis! I did get a bit of MJS The Crown Conspiacy: a duo (sounds like Jone’s made quite the characters too) being framed for something the didn’t do, then going on the run to prove otherwise, and find out it part of some big conspiracy.
