Waiting on Wednesday 04/08/20
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!
I had mixed feelings for Adrian Selby’s first book, Snakewood, but I loved, loved, LOVED his second book The Winter Wood. While Brother Road will be the third book set in the same world, like the others it will be a stand alone, and from its synopsis which teases adventure and mystery, I think I will enjoy this one a lot as well.
“From one of the most exciting new voices in dark epic fantasy comes a novel that is both intensely brutal and brilliantly cinematic; the story of a soldier torn between loyalty to her family and loyalty to her calling in her quest to preserve a kingdom’s future.
She was their hope, their martyr, their brother…
Driwna Marghoster, a soldier for the powerful merchant guild known as The Post, is defending her trade caravan from a vicious bandit attack when she discovers a dead body hidden in one of her wagons.
Born of the elusive Oskoro people, the body is a rare and priceless find, the center of a tragic tale and the key to a larger mystery.
But as Driwna investigates who the body was meant for, she finds herself on a trail of deceit and corruption…a trail that will lead her to an evil more powerful than she can possibly imagine.”
