Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Release Date: 2nd February 2017
This is not about blood or love. This is about treason.
Nearly a year has passed since Amani and the rebels won their epic battle at Fahali. Amani has come into both her powers and her reputation as the Blue-Eyed Bandit, and the Rebel Prince’s message has spread across the desert—and some might say out of control. But when a surprise encounter turns into a brutal kidnapping, Amani finds herself betrayed in the cruellest manner possible.
Stripped of her powers and her identity, and torn from the man she loves, Amani must return to her desert-girl’s instinct for survival. For the Sultan’s palace is a dangerous one, and the harem is a viper’s nest of suspicion, fear and intrigue. Just the right place for a spy to thrive…But spying is a dangerous game, and when ghosts from Amani’s past emerge to haunt her, she begins to wonder if she can trust her own treacherous heart.
Although it had some problems, mainly the fact that the plot was so slow to kick into action, I really loved Rebel of the Sands. It was one of my most anticipated releases for this year and it lived up to my expectations.
Once I’d finished book two immediately went on my to-read list, and now Traitor to the Throne has a cover (a really gorgeous one that both matches and stands out from the first book) and a blurb (which makes the book sound like the action will be present from the very beginning) I’m even more excited for its release.
So what does everyone think; is Traitor to the Throne a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
