Waiting on Wednesday is a meme I’ve participated in for years which lets readers share their excitement for books coming out soon, and for those who are frequent visitors here, I think this week’s pick will be a little surprising until you recall that, though I had lots of problems with book one of this series, I did enjoy certain aspects of it.  Plus, you know I’m a huge optimist when it comes to books.  Anyway, the novel I’m eagerly awaiting is . . .

Genre: Fantasy

Series: Book of the Ancestor #2

Publisher:  Ace (April 19, 2017)

Author Information: Website | Twitter 

Length: 400 pages

In Mystic Class Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.

All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a thwarted assassin, the ambition of a would-be empress wielding the Inquisition like a blade, and the vengeance of the empire’s richest lord.

As the world narrows around her, and her enemies attack her through the system she has sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pull of friendship, revenge, ambition, and loyalty.

And in all this only one thing is certain.
There will be blood.

  1. I’m really looking forward to Grey Sister, also! I felt similarly about Red Sister, but I have high hopes that this one will have a bit more to it. Great pick!

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but I hope you hate it. Because that’ll probably mean it’s more my kind of book 🙂
    Your review of Red Sister [along with all the others I read here on WP] convinced me to give this series a try once it’s done. And since you and I are pretty opposite on the ye ol’ grimdark’ometer, I think I can judge it accurately by the laws of opposites 😀

  3. Have you read Grey Sister yet?
    You and I had very similar feelings about Red Sister so I’m curious to see what you will make of Grey Sister. I’ve decided whether to read it or not yet.
