Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let readers share their excitement for books coming out soon, and the novel I’m eagerly awaiting is . . .


stranger of tempestStranger of Tempest by Tom Lloyd 

Genre: Fantasy

Series: The God Fragments #1

Publisher: Gollancz (June 16, 2016)

Author Information: Website | Twitter

Length: 320 pages

Lynx is a mercenary with a sense of honour; a dying breed in the Riven Kingdom. Failed by the nation he served and weary of the skirmishes that plague the continent’s principalities, he walks the land in search of purpose. He wants for little so bodyguard work keeps his belly full and his mage-gun loaded. It might never bring a man fame or wealth, but he’s not forced to rely on others or kill without cause.

Little could compel Lynx to join a mercenary company, but he won’t turn his back on a kidnapped girl. At least the job seems simple enough; the mercenaries less stupid and vicious than most he’s met over the years.

So long as there are no surprises or hidden agendas along the way, it should work out fine.

Purchase the book at Amazon.

  1. Was lucky enough to get a copy from Netgalley quite a while ago, it was my first Tom Lloyd book and I found it to be a great read and the covers awesome.

  2. That cover reminded me of a mash-up between Diablo and The Lords of the Rings.

  4. Agreed with Lisa, this one needs a US release date. Though I guess I can always hit up The Book Depository…
