Waiting on Wednesday -The Defiant Heir by Melissa Caruso
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
OK, so this might seem like a premature selection since the first book, The Tethered Mage, does not release until later this year, but I finished that book yesterday, and am really looking forward to the sequel. If I had it on hand, I would have just immediately picked up The Defiant Heir, to read them back to back. This one doesn’t release until April of 2018, but I am happy that it is not an entire year that I have to wait for it.
Across the border, the Witch Lords of Vaskandar are preparing for war. But before an invasion can begin, they must call a rare gathering of all seventeen lords to decide a course of action. Lady Amalia Cornaro knows that this Conclave might be her only chance to stifle the growing flames of war, and she is ready to make any sacrifice if it means saving Raverra from destruction.
Amalia and Zaira must go behind enemy lines, using every ounce of wit and cunning they have, to sway Vaskandar from war. Or else it will all come down to swords and fire.
