Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I have a weakness for Fantasy. Magic, supernatural powers, faes and witches, tyrannical kingdoms – just say any of those words and you have my attention, which is probably the reason why books under the fantasy genre dominated my 2017 reads.
And I’m not about to stop.
Today’s feature book for CWW is another fantasy book I’m really excited for.
Not you without me, not me without you.
Two proud kingdoms stand on opposite shores, with only a bloody history between them.
As best friend and lady-in-waiting to the princess, Branwen is guided by two principles: devotion to her homeland and hatred for the raiders who killed her parents. When she unknowingly saves the life of her enemy, he awakens her ancient healing magic and opens her heart. Branwen begins to dream of peace, but the princess she serves is not so easily convinced. Fighting for what’s right, even as her powers grow beyond her control, will set Branwen against both her best friend and the only man she’s ever loved.
Sweet Black Waves is the first book in a planned trilogy by Kristina Pérez. It’s a retelling of the legend of Tristan and Iseult so I’m expecting this one to have strong romance elements. But that’s just a bonus for me because with or without romance I’m getting my grabby hands on this.
Sweet Black Waves is out now. (It was released yesterday) I urge you to check it out on Goodreads.
What book (or should I say books) are you looking forward to this week?
