Waiting on Wednesday 5/4

Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisa ana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.

Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it—he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron-hard will to survive—and even that might not be enough.

The Gray Wolf Throne is an epic tale of fierce loyalty, unbearable sacrifice, and the heartless hand of fate.

Do you like epic fantasy? Do you enjoy powerful women, amazing world-building, dark plans and danger all around? The first two novels in this series, The Demon King and The Exiled Queen were absolutely wonderful. I've requested this one from netGalley, but I haven't been approved yet. Oof, I don't know if I can hold out until the publish date!

I listened to the first as an audiobook, and it was amazingly well-done. One of the few where I think the book actually benefits from being in audio format. I read the second in book format because we got the hardback in before the cd book and I couldn't wait if you paid me. It definitely was great as a book as well, but I think I'll check out the audiobook and listen to it before I read The Gray Wolf Throne in order to get into the mood! 

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
