I Can't Wait for... The Warrior Moon by K Arsenault Rivera

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 concluding volume of a trilogy about a pair of bold warrior women who have faced monumental adventures and catastrophic battles, but face fulfilling the prophecy of generations.

Title: The Warrior Moon

The Warrior Moon, the sequel to The Phoenix Empress and striking conclusion to K Arsenault Rivera's wildly buzzed about epic fantasy, which began with The Tiger's Daughter

Barsalayaa Shefali, famed Qorin adventurer, and the spoiled divine warrior empress, O-Shizuka, have survived fights with demon armies, garnered infamy, and ruled an empire. Raised together since birth, then forced into exile after their wedding, and reunited amidst a poisonous invasion—these bold warrior women have faced monumental adventures and catastrophic battles.

As they come closest to fulfilling the prophecy of generations—Shefali and Shizuka will face their greatest test yet.

"The Phoenix Empress expands and deepens the mysteries of this intricate and fully-realized fantasy world. I'm riveted by this story and can't wait for the next volume."—Martha Wells, author of the Murderbot Diaries series


  1. I love fantasy and this one sounds and looks excellent! I hope you love it!
