Waiting on Wednesday 07/18/18

“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!

We Are Mayhem by Michael Moreci (April 9th, 2019 by St. Martin’s Press)

Earlier this year, comic book writer Michael Moreci made the leap to novels with Black Star Renegades, his sci-fi debut that has been compared to Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy. Next spring, the saga will continue in this sequel which will no doubt be another love letter to these popular franchises while offering even more rollicking adventures through the galaxy.

“The second entry in the Star Wars-inspired series that Nerdist calls “the next big thing.” 

Though the ragtag group of misfits known as the Black Star Renegades won a decisive battle by destroying Ga Halle’s War Hammer, the war is far from over. In response to losing the crown jewel of its fleet, the evil Praxis empire has vengefully reinforced its tyranny across the galaxy–but its rule won’t be had so easily. Led by hotshot pilot Kira Sen, a growing rebel force stands in the way of Praxis’s might. Not only do they possess the will to fight for galactic freedom, they also possess the ultimate ace in the hole: The mythical Rokura, the most powerful weapon ever known.

Too bad Cade Sura hasn’t figured out to use it.

As Kira wages an increasingly bloody war against Praxis, Cade is left with only once choice: With Ga Halle scouring every star system for the coveted weapon, Cade embarks on a dangerous mission into uncharted space to discover the Rokura’s origins. Only then can he learn how it can be wielded. Because if he doesn’t, all hope for the galaxy might be lost.”

  1. I remember a lot of the reviews for the first book put me off enough that I pretty much passed on this author. I’ll wait and see if this turns into a trilogy or series and judge it as a whole I guess.


    • Yeah, I had some misgivings about the first book too – mainly that as a homage, it still wandered a little too close into “rip-off” territory for my liking. The author has a ton of passion though, and the book was fun as hell, so I’ll give the sequel a go!

  2. Cool, I hadn’t seen this yet. I had fun with the first book, I’m looking forward to more! Not sure about the cover, though. The art style is completely different and it’s a little…weird?


  3. We Are Mayhem – could be a tagline for book bloggers! I actually kind of the like the cover, even though it’s a bit crazy chaotic and I’m not entirely sure I know whats going on.
