I Can't Wait for... Nettle & Bone by T Kingfisher

Fantasy Books Coming Soon!

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 story of a princess, a disgraced ex-knight, a reluctant fairy godmother, and an enigmatic gravewitch and her fowl familiar ...

Title:
 Nettle & Bone
Author: T Kingfisher 
Publisher: Tor Books
Publication Date: April 26, 2022
Genres: Fantasy

This isn't the kind of fairytale where the princess marries a prince.

It's the one where she kills him.

From Hugo, Nebula, and Locus award-winning author T. Kingfisher comes an original and subversive fantasy adventure.

Marra never wanted to be a hero.

As the shy, convent-raised, third-born daughter, she escaped the traditional fate of princesses, to be married away for the sake of an uncaring throne. But her sister wasn't so fortunate--and after years of silence, Marra is done watching her suffer at the hands of a powerful and abusive prince.

Seeking help for her rescue mission, Marra is offered the tools she needs, but only if she can complete three seemingly impossible tasks:

--build a dog of bones

--sew a cloak of nettles

--capture moonlight in a jar

But, as is the way in tales of princes and witches, doing the impossible is only the beginning.

Hero or not--now joined by a disgraced ex-knight, a reluctant fairy godmother, an enigmatic gravewitch and her fowl familiar--Marra might finally have the courage to save her sister, and topple a throne.

  1. Yes! So excited for this. It sounds much different from the last couple of books I've read of hers.
