Waiting On Wednesday #61 – The Queens Of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton

Wednesday, January 31, 2018
is a weekly event originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

For whatever reason Jill is not blogging since August 2016 but her meme is still going on. Hope everything is ok and she will be back soon!

Until then, I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

This book got me by its cover. Holy heck – what a brilliant motive. The combination of black, gold and the two hands holding a crown; it can´t get more dramatic. And when I think of the last book I´ve read by Tessa Gratton (Blood Magic) then I am absolutely curious how this one will be.

I mean, this plays obviously in a completely different time and age. And with three women who have to fight for what they want under a king in a Shakespeare-like-manner combined with the authors a bit dark and mysterious style... this promises some reading pleasure upfront.

The Queens Of Innis Lear 
Author Tessa Gratton
Publishing Date March 27, 2018
Publisher Tor Books
Format Hardcover

Three Queens. One crown. All out war.
Gaela. Ruthless Commander. I am the rightful heir of Innis Lear. No more will I wait in the shadows and watch my mother´s murderer bleed my island dry. The Kings hold on the crown must end - willingly or at the edge of my sword.
Regan. Master Manipulator.
To secure my place on the throne, I must produce an heir. Countless times I have fed the islands forests my blood. Yet, my ambition is cursed. No matter what or whom I must destroy, I will wield the magic of Innis Lear.
Elia. Star-blessed Priest.
My sisters hide in the shadows like serpents, waiting to strike our ailing king. I must protect my father, even if it means marrying a stranger. We all have to make sacrifices. Love and freedom will be mine.

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.

Happy reading & waiting on
