Waiting on Wednesday 10/19/2022
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 Tyranny of Faith by Richard Swan (February 14, 2023 by Orbit)
The Justice of Kings is currently leading on my list of favorite books of 2022 and I have been eagerly awaiting news of this sequel since early in the year. I’m so excited that the cover was just officially revealed and it is glorious, I can’t wait to read it!
“From a major new debut author in epic fantasy comes the second book in a trilogy where action, intrigue, and magic collide. Sir Konrad Vonvalt is an Emperor’s Justice: a detective, judge, and executioner all in one. But these are dangerous times to be a Justice….
A Justice’s work is never done.
The Battle of Galen’s Vale is over, but the war for the Empire’s future has just begun. Concerned by rumors that the Magistratum’s authority is waning, Sir Konrad Vonvalt returns to Sova to find the capital city gripped by intrigue and whispers of rebellion. In the Senate, patricians speak openly against the Emperor, while fanatics preach holy vengeance on the streets.
Yet facing down these threats to the throne will have to wait, for the Emperor’s grandson has been kidnapped – and Vonvalt is charged with rescuing the missing prince. His quest will lead him – and his allies Helena, Bressinger and Sir Radomir – to the southern frontier, where they will once again face the puritanical fury of Bartholomew Claver and his templar knights – and a dark power far more terrifying than they could have imagined.”
Oh a nice cover!
I love that cover. I was a bit disappointed in Justice of Kings so I’m not sure if I will bother with the sequel.
That’s about as anachronistic as a writer could get.
OOoh intriguing! That cover is pretty amazing! Hope you enjoy it once you get to read it!
Here’s my CWW

I saw this yesterday and had a feeling it would be popular today. I haven’t read the first book but I’m going to try and catch up!
OMG – give me this book. I’m not even joking. I want it.
I picked up The Justice of Kings a couple months back. Can’t wait to try it, if it doesn’t get lost in my stacks as so many other books have. 🙂
Ohhh sounds good
