Waiting on Wednesday 03/21/18

“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!

Mogsy’s Pick

Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst (December 4, 2018 by Crown Books for Young Readers)

This winter, from the author of The Queens of Renthia series (which I enjoy quite a bit) comes a new tale about a young woman from family of thieving were-dragons. At this point, I’m not sure what is more exciting to me – the fact that we’ll have shapeshifting dragons, or the fact that this is a heist story. I guess it’s all good.

“In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.

Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.

With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.”

  1. Thieving were- dragons is probably good enough for me. 🙂 Ack though I still haven’t read Queens of Renthia. Nice to know she’s writing fast though. 🙂


  2. Oh cool! I love this idea and I also love the simplicity of the cover. The story blurb sounds a little juvenile to me (me way it’s written) but hopefully it’s more YA than MG.
