Waiting on Wednesday – The City of Broken Magic by Mirah Bolender
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
A non-magical human in charge of saving the world from a magic eating infestation?? Umm, yes!! Please!! This sounds like it should be fast and fun and hopefully really exciting!
Mirah Bolender’s fast-paced, adventure fantasy debut, City of Broken Magic, features a bomb squad that defuses magic weapons.
Five hundred years ago, magi created a weapon they couldn’t control. An infestation that ate magic–and anything else it came into contact with. Enemies and allies were equally filling.
Only an elite team of non-magical humans, known as sweepers, can defuse and dispose of infestations before they spread. Most die before they finish training.
Laura, a new team member, has stayed alive longer than most. Now, she’s the last–and only–sweeper standing between the city and a massive infestation.
