I Can't Wait for... Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about and have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for this week is the first in a new series, the story of a young woman who will need the courage of a woman in order fight like a man.

Title: Realm of Knights

Author:  Jennifer Anne Davis

Publisher: Reign Publishing

Publication Date:  September 10, 2019

Genres: Fantasy

Shelves: Female-fronted

Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.

In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.

Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.

To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.

  3. I don't know what it is about novels featuring women pretending to be men that draw me to them. This reminds me a bit of Mulan from the description. I am adding this to my wish list. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! Have a great week.

  4. Ooh, I love the sound of this! One of my favorite tropes is a woman disguised as a man, and I'll bet this is good.

  5. Oooh! That cover is awesome. I hope you love it!
