Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tressa 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.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
I missed CWW for a couple of weeks. Life has been keeping me busy, I’m afraid. There were a few changes at my work. Nope, still doing the same thing – being a nurse and all that – but I was given a new clinic to establish and manage, which is a good thing though I haven’t gotten to feeling excited about it yet. I’ll get there eventually, I think.
Anyway, to get me back to the CWW track, I’m featuring a sequel to a book I loved last year.
Title: Wild Savage Stars
Series: Sweet Black Waves #2
Author: Kristina Pérez
Publication Date: August 27, 2019
Pre-order: IndieBound | Book Depository | Barnes and Noble | Books-a-Million | Amazon | Kobo | Apple Books
Branwen has a secret powerful enough to destroy two kingdoms.
Her ancient magic led to a terrible betrayal by both her best friend, the princess Essy, and her first love, Tristan. Now this same magic is changing Branwen. Adrift in a rival court, Branwen must hide the truth from the enemy king by protecting the lovers who broke her heart―and finds herself considering a darker path.
Not everyone wants the alliance with Branwen’s kingdom to succeed―peace is balanced on a knife’s edge, and her only chance may be to embrace the darkness within…
I really loved Kristina Pérez’s take on Tristan and Iseult Sweet Black Waves when it came out last year. She created such an interesting character in Branwen – someone still coming to grips with her newfound power, someone divided between her duties and her own wants. The first book ended in a sort of cliffhanger and I’m excited to see how things pan out for her, for Tristan, maybe a bit about Iseult as well, (but if you read my review of the Sweet Black Waves you’ll know how I feel about her.)
I was lucky enough to get a chance to read an ARC of this book. I can’t get to it right now because I still have a couple more books on my schedule, but you bet I will get to this book as quick as I can.
What book/s are you excited for this week?
