Waiting on Wednesday 03/22/23

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!

Cassiel’s Servant by Jacqueline Carey (August 1, 2023 by Tor Books)

The big news of the week was of course the cover reveal for this retelling of Kushiel’s Dart told from Joscelin’s point of view. The original Kushiel trilogy had a lot to do with getting me into the fantasy genre in the first place, so it has a special place in my heart, and to this day it’s still one of my favorites of all time. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this book, now that there’s finally both a cover and description I could just cry.

“The lush epic fantasy that inspired a generation with a single precept: “Love As Thou Wilt.”

Returning to the realm of Terre d’Ange which captured an entire generation of fantasy readers, New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey brings us a hero’s journey for a new era.

In Kushiel’s Dart, a daring young courtesan uncovered a plot to destroy her beloved homeland. But hers is only half the tale. Now see the other half of the heart that lived it.

Cassiel’s Servant is a retelling of cult favorite Kushiel’s Dart from the point of view of Joscelin, Cassiline warrior-priest and protector of Phèdre nó Delaunay. He’s sworn to celibacy and the blade as surely as she’s pledged to pleasure, but the gods they serve have bound them together. When both are betrayed, they must rely on each other to survive.

From his earliest training to captivity amongst their enemies, his journey with Phèdre to avert the conquest of Terre D’Ange shatters body and mind… and brings him an impossible love that he will do anything to keep.

Even if it means breaking all vows and losing his soul.”

  1. I’m looking forward to this one too. I finished the Phedre trilogy wishing I could have had Joscelin’s POV on some of the events. Not sure if this will give me all I want, but I look forward to it.
