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, hello! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week so far. My weeks still a little hectic as we are still learning a new system at work, but that should finish soon and I can’t wait for it to be over. The book I’m choosing to spotlight this week is one that’s new to my TBR, I actually found it last week via Twitter, but it sounds right up my street. YA fantasy, written by a Filipino author described as ‘a girl cursed by the sins of her past lives enters a deadly competition in a desperate attempt to save her imprisoned mother, only to come face to face with her immortal enemy who is tasked with destroying her once and for all’
I promised my mother I would never come to Bato-Ko…and yet here I am.
Narra Jal is one of the cursed, cast aside her whole life, considered unlucky. But with her mother’s life on the line, she will return to the city where she was born to face the trials: a grueling, bloodthirsty series of challenges designed to weed out the weak, the greedy, and the foolish. Trials to select the next ruler of Tigang.
Narra has nothing. No weapons. No training. No magic. No real chance of leaving with her life. Just her fierce grit and a refusal to accept the destiny she’s been handed. Even the intense, dark-eyed Guardian she feels a strangely electric connection with cannot help her. Narra is on her own. But she’ll show everyone what the unlucky can do.
Let the bloodbath begin.
