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.”

  1. 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.


  2. 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.
