#ScifiMonth Waiting on Wednesday 11/23/22

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

Capture the Sun by Jessie Mihalik (June 20, 2023 by HarperVoyager)

While this one is billed as the conclusion to the Starlight’s Shadow trilogy, technically all the books in the series can be read as standalones. And a good thing too, because I still need to get caught up with the second book (on my list to read for Sci-Fi Month, hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze it in before the end of November). The thing I love most about Jessie Mihalik’s books is that they’re unapologetically romance, so they typically make for great mood reads when you’re just down for a bit of fun.

“Acclaimed author Jessie Mihalik returns with the thrilling conclusion to her Starlight’s Shadow trilogy. An intergalactic thief must join forces with the charming teleporter who stole her last job–and may now be her only hope for saving her former crew.

As a recovery specialist, Lexi Bowen’s jobs typically require more trickery and thievery than honest work. Her former captain might not approve of her flexible morals, but stealing artifacts for rich assholes pays the bills, and Lexi’s had enough of war and death. The FHP left her to die once; she doesn’t plan to give them a chance to finish the job.

Unfortunately, her latest contract takes her to Valovia itself–and right back into the orbit of Nilo Shoren, a Valovian teleporter who already cost her one payday and nearly stole her heart.

Armored against his clever charm, Lexi plans to get in, get the job done, and get out. But when her former crew goes missing in Valovian space, Lexi will have to work with Nilo to figure out what happened–and stop it–before the galaxy’s two superpowers can use the disappearance as an excuse to return to war.”
