Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.
This week I’ve chosen:
A Time of Blood (Of Blood and Bone #2) by John Gwynne.
Defy the darkness. Defend the light.
Drem and his friends flee the battle at Starstone Lake to warn the Order of the Bright Star. They’ve witnessed horrors they’ll never forget, such as magic warping men into beasts. But worst of all, they’ve seen a demon rise from the dead – making it even more powerful. Now Fritha, the demons’ high priestess, is hunting Drem’s party.
Concealed in Forn Forest, Riv struggles to understand her half-breed heritage. She represents the warrior angels’ biggest secret, one which could break their society. And when she’s found by the Ben-Elim’s high captain, he swoops in for the kill.
As demonic forces multiply, they send a mighty war-host to overthrow the angel’s stronghold. This could decimate the fractured Ben-Elim. And their allies in the Order may be too overwhelmed to send aid – with Fritha and her monstrous beasts closing in. Like heroes of old, Drem and the Bright Star’s warriors must battle to save their land. But can the light triumph when the dark is rising?
A Time of Blood is the second book in Gwynne’s Of Blood and Bone trilogy following on from A Time of Dread which I loved, it will be on my books of the year for 2018 list and you can find my review for it !!HERE!!
A Time of Blood is scheduled to be published by Pan Macmillan/Tor on April 19th, 2019. Gwynne is one of my favourite fantasy authors and his The Faithful and The Fallen series is my all-time favourite fantasy series, I love his work! I am chomping at the bit for this book, one of my most anticipated reads of 2019 without a shadow of a doubt and just look at that killer cover too, it screams cover love!
