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 & happy Wednesday! I hope you’ve all had a great start to the week. Today’s pick is a sequel to a Persian inspired fantasy I read last year. It was dark, filled with compelling characters, magic and scenes that were definitely not for the faint of heart. I am super excited to get my hands on the sequel & see what’s happening, especially after the shocking ending of the first book. (check out my review here.)
She must burn to rise. He must bleed to heal.
After a devastating loss that leaves her utterly alone, Roma has one thing on her mind. Revenge.
To become strong enough to punish the Firawn for his betrayal, she seeks out a notorious resistance of women warriors known as the Red Widows. But there comes a strange whispering along the desert winds that only Roma can hear, and answering the call may lead to a power unlike any other.
Meanwhile, Leviathan begins to destabilise his father’s army from his position as Commander, while struggling with his growing feelings for Roma. But in the midst of unstable alliances, it is a matter of time before the Firawn discovers that his own son is the serpent in his garden, and a terrible twist of fate may force Leviathan to make the ultimate sacrifice.
As foreign powers threaten the Firawn’s existence, he becomes desperate for the treasure and takes radical steps to get to Roma. With their destinies interlocking again, Roma and Leviathan must come together in a looming battle that will make or break the rebellion. Yet, uncovering the treasure could be the only way to defeat the Firawn.
