"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
King Breaker by Rowena Cory Daniells
Sept 30, 2013 (Solaris)
The conclusion to the hugely popular King Rolen's Kin series!
The story of Byron, Fyn and Piro picks up immediately where the cliff-hanging ending of The Usurper let off! When Cobalt stole the Rolencian throne, Byren, Fyn and Piro were lucky to escape with their lives, now they’ve rallied and set out to avenge their parents' murder.
Byren is driven to defeat Cobalt and reclaim the crown, but at what cost? Fyn has sworn to serve Byren’s interests but his loyalty is tested when he realises he loves Byren’s betrothed. And Piro never wanted to win a throne, now she holds the fate of a people in her hands.
I've been waiting for this one for almost a year now, having mentioned in my review of The Usurper that "the story really does demand one more volume." Well, Rowena promised that one more volume was coming - two, if your count The King's Man, this winter's surprise novella - and I finally have a release date and cover to share. Definitely looking forward to this!
