Waiting on Wednesday 12/21/22
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!
Night Angel Nemesis by Brent Weeks (April 25, 2023 by Orbit)
I first read the Night Angel trilogy around the time I started this blog, so that was quite a while ago! Super excited about Weeks returning to the world though, and sounds like it’s the beginning of a brand new adventure.
“Brent Weeks returns to the New York Times bestselling world of the Night Angel in Night Angel Nemesis, following master assassin Kylar on a new adventure as the High King Logan Gyre calls on him to save his kingdom and the hope of peace.
After the war that cost him so much, Kylar Stern is broken and alone. He’s determined not to kill again, but an impending amnesty will pardon the one murderer he can’t let walk free. He promises himself this is the last time. One last hit to tie up the loose ends of his old, lost life.
But Kylar’s best–and maybe only–friend, the High King Logan Gyre, needs him. To protect a fragile peace, Logan’s new kingdom, and the king’s twin sons, he needs Kylar to secure a powerful magical artifact that was unearthed during the war.
With rumors that a ka’kari may be found, adversaries both old and new are on the hunt. And if Kylar has learned anything, it’s that ancient magics are better left in the hands of those he can trust.
If he does the job right, he won’t need to kill at all. This isn’t an assassination—it’s a heist.
But some jobs are too hard for an easy conscience, and some enemies are so powerful the only answer lies in the shadows.”
Ooh nice pick! That’s a new to me one! Sounds like an intriguing read! Hope you love it once you get to read it!

I have the original trilogy as an all-in-one volume but have yet to read it. I recall my brother loved it but a friend hated it. 🙂
I remember the writing being really rough, but that was years ago when I started reading fantasy so maybe I just didn’t know any better lol!
Whaaaat?! Must have
I know, this is exciting!
So, this is a sequel to the original trilogy? I guess I have to read the trilogy (I own the 3-in-1 omnibus)!
I think chronologically it does follow the original trilogy, but sounds like it can be read without it!

I hope so.
Me too!!! 😀 I can’t wait! I don’t want to know anything about it going in so that my expectations aren’t crazy high.
I was so excited when I found out! And great plan, I’m just happy to know it’s about Kylar.
I haven’t read this author yet and although this is a return to the same world as his previous books I’m thinking maybe I could dive in here.
I think that will be the case. It’s been years!
