Waiting on Wednesday is a meme I’ve participated in for years which lets readers share their excitement for books coming out soon, and this week my pick is for a series which I’ve been enjoying for the last few years.  Anyway, the novel I’m eagerly awaiting is . . .

This amazing epic fantasy debut is perfect for fans of Robin Hobb and Naomi Novik.

In secret, he’s a master of poisons and chemicals, trained to protect the Chancellor’s family from treachery. When the Chancellor succumbs to an unknown poison and an army lays siege to the city, Jovan and his sister Kalina must protect the Heir and save their city-state.

But treachery lurks in every corner, and the ancient spirits of the land are rising…and angry.

  5. Hmm, I can definitely see the Robin Hobb influence in that blurb. Sounds like it could be an interesting read, but that cover needs to. I had to look twice to figure out it was a hand holding a dagger and not a deformed foot. LOL
