This week’s Summer Blogger Promo Tour post is a bookish meme, except on Sunday! Katie & Ashley from Lost In Pages and I have decided to do Waiting on Wednesday but on Sunday, where we talk about a book we’re waiting on!
K: Thorn of Emberlain by Scott Lynch
Locke Lamora, thief, con-man, pirate, political deceiver is back, and now he must become a soldier.
A new chapter for Locke and Jean and finally the war that has been brewing in the Kingdom of the Marrows flares up and threatens to capture all in its flames.
And all the while Locke must try to deal with the disturbing rumours about his past revealed in The Republic of Thieves. Fighting a war when you don’t know the truth of right and wrong is one thing. Fighting a war when you don’t know the truth of yourself is quite another. Particularly when you’ve never been that good with a sword anyway…
The mystical book four of the Gentleman Bastards Trilogy, The Thorn of Emberlain, is a book I’m sure fans have been waiting on for forever. While the book doesn’t have a release date just yet, I think there were rumors for 2019? I’m particularly hyped for this book because supposedly, this was the original book Lynch wanted to write. However, he ended up writing the first three as necessary prequels to build up the world for this book.
Katie (Lost In Pages): Vengeful by VE Schwab
Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there’s Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn’t know about his most recent act of vengeance.
Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.
I read Vicious back in August of last year, and I fell instantly in love with Schwab’s writing and these characters. I cannot wait to see what will happen next, and I’m sure it’ll kill me in the best way possible. I’ll for sure be buying the US and UK editions, and I have the Illumicrate box preordered that has a special exclusive edition in it as well! You can never have too many Victoria Schwab books in my opinion.
