Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you spotlight a highly anticipated book.
Happy Wednesday, Bookworms!
A highly anticipated book I want to spotlight this week is Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard.
The only book by Victoria Aveyard that I’ve read is Red Queen and never finished the series. But I really enjoyed Red Queen and loved how masterfully Aveyard told the story, constructed the world, and crafted her characters. Maybe I’ll have better luck finishing this upcoming series because it sounds like a fantastic read!
I like stories of the ordinary discovering they’re extraordinary and double like that we get a contrasting group of secondary characters to aid the MC. The whole premise is enticing. The cover is stunning in gold. And I’m very intrigued by the hand gripping the sword by the blade. Realm Breaker was an instant-add to my wish list.
This YA fantasy is set to be released May 4, 2021.
ABOUT: A strange darkness grows in Allward.
Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea.
She soon discovers the truth: She is the last of an ancient lineage—and the last hope to save the world from destruction. But she won’t be alone. Even as darkness falls, she is joined by a band of unlikely companions:
A squire, forced to choose between home and honor.
An immortal, avenging a broken promise.
An assassin, exiled and bloodthirsty.
An ancient sorceress, whose riddles hide an eerie foresight.
A forger with a secret past.
A bounty hunter with a score to settle.
Together they stand against a vicious opponent, invincible and determined to burn all kingdoms to ash, and an army unlike anything the realm has ever witnessed.
