Waiting on Wednesday 05/16/18

“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

Ship of Smoke and Steel by Django Wexler (January 22, 2019 by Tor Teen)

To my excitement, the cover to the first book of Django Wexler’s upcoming new YA series was revealed earlier this week. I’m a huge fan of the author, who has shown incredible versatility with a wide range of genres as well as writing for many different age groups, so I’m already confident I will love this one. Plus, it’s a heist story!

“Ship of Smoke and Steel is the launch of a cinematic, action-packed epic fantasy trilogy for fans of Leigh Bardugo and The Legend of Korra.

In the lower wards of Kahnzoka, the great port city of the Blessed Empire, eighteen-year-old ward boss Isoka comes to collect when there’s money owing. When her ability to access the Well of Combat is discovered by the Empire—an ability she should have declared and placed at His Imperial Majesty’s service—she’s sent on an impossible mission: steal Soliton, a legendary ghost ship—a ship from which no one has ever returned. If she fails, her sister’s life is forfeit.
