"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
The Dragon Engine by Andy Remic
Expected publication: September 1st 2015 by Angry Robot
Five noble war heroes of Vagandrak get drunk one night and sign a contract – to journey to the Karamakkos in search of the Five Havens where, it is written, there is untold, abandoned wealth and, more importantly, the three Dragon Heads – jewels claimed to give unspeakable power and everlasting life to those who wield them.
But the Dragon Heads aren't what they think, and the world has not encountered their like in generations!
Think Smaug was fierce? You ain't seen nothing!
While I already had this on my most-anticipated list for 2015, last week's reveal of the cover pushed my excitement to 11 and turned a must-read into a give-me-the-book-now-and-nobody-gets-hurt title! The Dragon Engine (and it's follow-up, Twilight of the Dragons) are set in the same world as The Iron Wolves and The White Towers, which I enjoyed immensely, and Remic himself has said "these books will hit new levels in fantasy violence and anti-heroic depravity."
Update: Self-imposed ARC ban be damned . . . just downloaded the ARC. :)
