Waiting on Wednesday 04/19/23
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!
The Queen of Days by Greta Kelly (October 24, 2023 by HarperVoyager)
“From Greta Kelly, the author of the Warrior Witch duology, comes The Queen of Days, an epic adventure that weaves together a flawed-but-lovable family of thieves, a battle between fallen gods, and stakes high enough to cause vertigo—perfect for fans of The Lies of Locke Lamora and Six of Crows.
For Balthazar and his family of thieves, stealing a statue during the annual celebration of the god Karanis was just a good bit of fun…or a way to stick it to the governor who murdered his parents. And yeah, the small fortune in reward doesn’t hurt—even if his boss also hired the mysterious Queen of Days to join the crew as “the weapon of last resort…”
Whatever that means.
But Bal doesn’t know the ceremony isn’t simply empty words and dusty tradition; it’s true magic. The kind of magic that rips open a portal for the god himself. Only the idol that Karanis planned on using for a body now lies broken at the Queen of Days’ feet. And half of it is missing.
With the aid of a lovable brawler, a society lady turned bomb maker, a disgraced soldier, and a time-eating demon, Bal must hunt down the missing half of the statue if he has any hope of earning his money, keeping his crew alive…and perhaps even saving all of humanity. But as his journey sends him racing through the city—and across realities—he discovers that doing all this might just doom the city.
The city be damned. It’s time to kill a god.”
I’m not familiar with this author, but the description does have me curious.
She wrote the Warrior Witch duology which I loved! It’s why I’m super excited for this one 🙂
Nice pick! That’s a new to me one but looks very intriguing! Hope you enjoy this one once you get to read it!

This sounds really good. I haven’t read Kelly before but I’ve heard good things about her other series.
I adore her other series! I was so excited to find out about this one, I’ve been waiting on news on what she’s working on next!
This sounds like it could be great fun – I’m glad I read the premise, because the cover looks a bit on the grim side… Thank you for sharing, Mogsy:).
Yes, it’s a shame about the cover! Kind of dark and generic!
This sounds so good – definitely something I would enjoy going off the description.
I am interested for sure
