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:
Priest of Lies (War for the Rose Throne #2) by Peter McLean.
When Tomas Piety and his Pious Men returned from the war, he just wanted to rebuild his crime empire and look after his people. But the sinister Queen’s Men had different ideas and whether he likes it or not, he’s now a spy as well.
Now, half the city of Ellinburg lies in ashes and the webs of political intrigue are stretching out from the Queen’s capital to pull Tomas in. Dannsburg is calling.
In Dannsburg the nobility fight with words, not blades, but the results are every bit as bloody. In this pit of beasts, Tomas must decide once and for all whether he is truly the people’s champion . . . or just a priest of lies.
And as Tomas’ power grows, the nobility had better watch their backs . . .
I really enjoyed Priest of Bones (War for the Rose Throne #1) when it was released last year – you can find my review !!HERE!! So much so, in fact, that it made it onto my Top Twenty Books I read in 2018 post – which you can find !!HERE!!
Priest of Lies (War for the Rose Throne #2) is published by Jo Fletcher Books and released on July 2nd, 2019.
