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!
Hello! I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far. The book I’m going to talk about this week is a 2022 release that’s said to contain a swoon worthy lover story and some immense world building. It’s got a really unique premise and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.
How can you find your soul mate, when you don’t have a soul?
Iris lives in a world ruled by The Order. Inspectors police the population by keeping careful watch over people’s souls. If they shine their lanterns on you, your soul is projected for the world to see… and judge. But Iris has a deadly secret … she is a hollow, a person with no soul.
She must hide from the Order at all costs, scraping a living in the shadows. But when she’s sent to steal a ring from a lady of nobility, she is reunited with her Spark – one of the five parts that make up her own missing soul.
Now she must rely on the help of a young scholar named Evander Mountebank to track down the other four missing pieces of her soul, all the while evading The Order. Will she be able to protect her heart as well as find her soul?
