Waiting on Wednesday 10/07/20
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!
The Empire’s Ruin by Brian Staveley (July 6, 2021 by Tor Books)
I’m a big fan of Brian Staveley, so his next novel, the first of a new series set in the same world of his Chronicle of the Unhewn Thrown series is definitely going on the reading list.
“Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor’s Blades, gives readers the first book in a new epic fantasy trilogy based in the world of his popular series the Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne, The Empire’s Ruin.
The Annurian Empire is disintegrating. The advantages it used for millennia have fallen to ruin. The ranks of the Kettral have been decimated from within, and the kenta gates, granting instantaneous travel across the vast lands of the empire, can no longer be used.
In order to save the empire, one of the surviving Kettral must voyage beyond the edge of the known world through a land that warps and poisons all living things to find the nesting ground of the giant war hawks. Meanwhile, a monk turned con-artist may hold the secret to the kenta gates.
But time is running out. Deep within the southern reaches of the empire and ancient god-like race has begun to stir.
What they discover will change them and the Annurian Empire forever. If they can survive.”
I‘ve read the first of his Unhewn Throne back in 2015, but never made it any further – it was a relaxing read with some weaknesses, and I liked it.
I have a couple of his books languishing on my TBR and I need to start reading his works soon, because I’ve seen only positive reviews of it!
I always get this author and McClellan mixed up. Too many “Brians” in the author world 😉
OOh nice! That’s a new to me one! Hope you enjoy it once you get to read it!
Here’s my WoW
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
So, I’m guessing this can be read without having read the previous series? I’m so far behind with ALL the books.
Great pick! I l knew he was working on a new series, but had no idea it was in the same world until the cover reveal last month. So excited!
I haven’t read this series, but I’m seeing a lot of excitement for this book😁
Yesss!! I featured this today too!
I haven’t read any of his books yet, but I just checked and found I have the first two in the Chronicle of the Unhewn Thrown series. I’ll have to try to get to those. I love the artist who’s done his covers, very interesting style.
Oh it looks fun!
New one! Wishlist
Hope you enjoy this one, it looks pretty interesting!
Ugggghhhhh, this series has been in my “Must Start ASAP” for two or three years now!! Hopefully next year……
