Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.
There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing Waiting on Wednesday. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.
Title: Mask of Shadows
Author: Linsey Miller
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Publication date: August 29, 2017
Summary (via Goodreads): Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class and the nobles who destroyed their home.
When Sal Leon steals a poster announcing open auditions for the Left Hand, a powerful collection of the Queen’s personal assassins named for the rings she wears — Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, and Opal — their world changes. They know it’s a chance for a new life.
Except the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. But Sal must survive to put their real reason for auditioning into play: revenge.
Why I Chose This Book:
This one sounds really interesting. I haven’t really read assassin books besides Throne of Glass, so it’ll be interesting to see another author’s writing. I got an eARC from Netgalley, and then was asked to audition for The Queen’s Left Hand. So that’s been a fun weekly activity to help promote Linsey’s book. I’m planning on reading this one really soon for #TheReadingQuest challenge as my book with a weapon on its cover.
