Waiting on Wednesday – Swords and Scoundrels

July 29, 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.

This book just sounds like it could be so good. The dynamics between siblings is often fun, and I am sure there’s a good story behind how they got thrown out of the Duelist’s Guild. And then living as highwaymen, and accidentally falling into a plot to restore an angry king to power? Yes! I do want to read this! Oh, and the author? She’s an amazingly fun person online, a regular on the Fantasy Faction forum, her posts are always worth reading with a greatΒ balance of humor and intelligence πŸ™‚ ) . And, so I won’t miss the book. Really looking forward to it.

As a last resort, they turn reluctant highwaymen. But when they pick the wrong carriage to rob, their simple plans to win back fame and fortune go south fast.

After barely besting three armed men and a powerful magician, Vocho and Kacha make off with an immense locked chest. But the contents will bring them much more than they’ve bargained for when they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous plot to return an angry king to power….
