Waiting on Wednesday 08/08/18

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 Wolf in the Whale by Jordanna Max Brodsky January 29, 2019 by Redhook)

After wrapping up her Olympus Bound trilogy, looks like Jordanna Max Brodsky has turned her attention from Greek mythology to something a bit different in her upcoming historical epic fantasy!

“A young Inuit shaman’s epic quest for survival in the frozen lands of North America in 1000 AD.

Born with the soul of a hunter and the language of the gods, Omat is destined to become a shaman like her grandfather. To protect her people, she invokes the spirits of the sky, the sea, and the air.

But the gods have stopped listening, the seals won’t come, and Omat’s family is starving.
Desperate to save them, Omat journeys through the icy wastes, fighting for survival with every step. When she meets a Viking warrior and his strange new gods, together they set in motion a conflict that could shatter her world…or save it.
The Wolf in the Whale is a powerful tale of magic, discovery and adventure, featuring an unforgettable narrator ready to confront the gods themselves.”

  1. Wow, this sounds both really different yet similar to her last series, not sure why I got that vibe. I didn’t know she had a new book coming out, thanks for sharing!


  2. Wow. Very different from her Olympus Bound series. But this is something I would absolutely read. The only times I’ve seen the Inuit or indigenous Arctic peoples portrayed in fantasy literature weren’t very favorable, so I hope this will be more fair toward them.
