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 . . .
Series: Poison Wars #1
Publisher: Tor Books (July 3, 2018)
Length: 560 pages
This amazing epic fantasy debut is perfect for fans of Robin Hobb and Naomi Novik.
I was seven years old the first time my uncle poisoned me… Outwardly, Jovan is the lifelong friend of the Chancellor’s charming, irresponsible Heir. Quiet. Forgettable. 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.
