Waiting on Wednesday 06/06/18

“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

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon (February 26, 2019 by Bloomsbury Publishing)

Looks like Samantha Shannon is taking a little departure from her usual work with this upcoming epic fantasy novel, and to be honest, since I’m not really feeling the The Bone Season series anymore with its weird mix of paranormal and dystopian vibes (I haven’t even read the latest book), I’m kind of curious to see what she will bring instead to my favorite genre. At almost 900 pages, The Priory of the Orange Tree is going to be quite a tome, which admittedly makes me feel a bit intimidated but also excited at the same time.

“From the internationally bestselling author of The Bone Season, a trailblazing epic fantasy about a world on the brink of war with dragons—and the women who must lead the fight to save it.

A world divided.
A queendom without an heir.
An ancient enemy awakens.

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.”

  1. Been seeing a lot of hype for this one. Oddly I feel like it might not be my kind of read. Even though I do love my fantasy reads. I hope you will thoroughly enjoy this one once you get to read it!

    Here’s my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Omg I’m so excited for this one as well!!
    I haven’t read her more recent bone season book either because I forgot so much about the first two and don’t feel like re reading them…
    All the pictures of the people who got this beast of a book make me drool for it! so big!


  3. That cover is AMAZING. But I really didn’t like The Bone Season very much, I feel like that series just sort of disappeared? And 900 pages, it would have to be exceptional for me to devote that kind of time to one book.


  4. Ohhhh…so this is the author who wrote The Bone Season? I haven’t read any of her books yet, but I have been seeing the hype for Priory everywhere, so maybe I’ll check it out sometime. 😛 By the way, this cover is absolutely stunning!


  5. That cover is great – really eye catching. I read the first two in the Bone Season – not sure where the series is now up to or if I’ve fallen behind (probably).
