Waiting On Wednesday #74 – Waffenschwestern by Mark Lawrence

Wednesday, October 24, 2018
is a weekly event that was 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.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t.



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

The German edition of Mark Lawrence´s Red Sister will have its premiere later this year and though it sounds pretty much like the Nevernight-Chronicles, I am kind of curious to see how this one will be.

Waffenschwestern – Das erste Buch des Ahnen   
Author Mark Lawrence
Publishing Date November 28, 2018
Publisher Fischer FJB
Format Paperback

At the Convent of Sweet Mercy, young girls are raised to be killers. In some few children, the old bloods show, gifting rare talents that can be honed to deadly or mystic effect. But even the mistresses of sword and shadow don´t truly understand what they have purchased when Nona Grey is brought to their halls. A bloodstained child of nine falsely accused of murder, guilty of worse, Nona is stolen from the shadow of the noose. It takes ten years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist, but under Abbess Glass´s care, there is much more to learn than the arts of death. Among her class, Nona finds a new family – and new enemies. Despite the security and isolation of the convent, Nona´s secret and violent past finds her out, drawing with it the tangled politics of a crumbling empire. Her arrival sparks old feuds to life, igniting vicious struggles within the church and even drawing the eye of the emperor himself. Beneath a dying sun, Nona Grey must master her inner demons, then loose them on those who stand in her way.

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.

    1. Yes, it does. And I guess it will be either among my x-mas presents or it comes by surprise mail *smile* Thanks for stopping by.
