Waiting on Wednesday – A Veil of Spears by Bradley P. Beaulieu
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
I decided to include both the US and UK covers for this one, because I just couldn’t decide which I liked better. I have loved this series so far and am excited for the next one!
A Veil of Spears (The Song of the Shattered Sands, #3) by Bradley P. Beaulieu

Published by Daw Books on March 20th 2018
The final book in The Song of Shattered Sands trilogy–an epic fantasy with a desert setting, filled with rich worldbuilding and pulse-pounding action.
Since the Night of Endless Swords, a bloody battle the Kings of Sharakhai narrowly won, the kings have been hounding the rebels known as the Moonless Host. Many have been forced to flee the city, including Ceda, who discovers that the King of Sloth is raising his army to challenge the other kings’ rule.
When Ceda finds the remaining members of the Moonless Host, now known as the thirteenth tribe, she sees a tenuous existence. Ceda hatches a plan to return to Sharakhai and free the asirim, the kings’ powerful, immortal slaves. The kings, however, have sent their greatest tactician, the King of Swords, to bring Ceda to justice for her crimes.
But the once-unified front of the kings is crumbling. The surviving kings vie quietly against one another, maneuvering for control over Sharakhai. Ceda hopes to use that to her advantage, but whom to trust? Any of them might betray her.
As Ceda works to lift the shackles from the asirim and save the thirteenth tribe, the kings of Sharakhai, the scheming queen of Qaimir, the ruthless blood mage, Hamzakiir, and King of Swords all prepare for a grand clash that may decide the fate of all.
