Waiting on Wednesday – The Bone Ships by R. J. Barker

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme that was originated at Breaking the Spine, now hosted at Wishful Endings. It’s a weekly feature that lets us share our excitement for books coming out soon.

It’s so hard to keep up with all the books, so sometimes there are new books and series that I regret not prioritizing. R. J. Barker’s first trilogy is one of those regrets for me. So this new series sounds like a great opportunity to finally read Barker. Plus, dragons and criminals!

Violent raids plague the divided isles of the Scattered Archipelago. Fleets constantly battle for dominance and glory, and no commander stands higher among them than “Lucky” Meas Gilbryn.

But betrayed and condemned to command a ship of criminals, Meas is forced on suicide mission to hunt the first living sea-dragon in generations. Everyone wants it, but Meas Gilbryn has her own ideas about the great beast. In the Scattered Archipelago, a dragon’s life, like all lives, is bound in blood, death and treachery
