Can’t Wait Wednesday - Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes  
Expected publication: April 9th 2019 by Orbit

Acclaimed author Sam Sykes returns with a brilliant new epic fantasy that introduces an unforgettable outcast magician caught between two warring empires.

Her magic was stolen. She was left for dead.

Betrayed by those she trusts most and her magic ripped from her, all Sal the Cacophony has left is her name, her story, and the weapon she used to carve both. But she has a will stronger than magic, and knows exactly where to go.

The Scar, a land torn between powerful empires, where rogue mages go to disappear, disgraced soldiers go to die and Sal went with a blade, a gun, and a list of seven names.

Revenge will be its own reward.

I have yet to read Sam Sykes, but I can't think of any better place to start than with this - stolen magic, a scarred land, and the drive for revenge.


  1. I haven't read Sam Sykes yet either, but I have a couple of his books. I'll have to consider this:-)

  2. Sykes can be hilarious, but I've also read a couple of his books that just didn't click. So we'll have to see about this one!
