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:
The Bone Ships (The Bone Ships Trilogy #1) by RJ Barker.
Enter the Hundred Isles, where ships made from the bones of extinct dragons battle for supremacy on the high seas.
Our hero Meas Gibryn must unite a crew of condemned criminals for a suicide mission when the first live dragon in centuries is spotted in far off waters…
The first book in a bold new epic fantasy trilogy from Gemmell, Kitschie and British Fantasy Award-nominated RJ Barker, author of Age of Assassins.’
I’m a huge fan of Barker’s previous trilogy The Wounded Kingdom and can’t wait for his latest release, a stunning cover and an enticing blurb, it should be great!
The Bone Ships (The Bone Ships Trilogy #1) is published by Orbit Books and released on September 26th, 2019.
About RJ Barker
RJ Barker lives in Leeds with his wife, son and a collection of questionable taxidermy, odd art, scary music and more books than they have room for. He grew up reading whatever he could get his hands on, and has always been ‘that one with the book in his pocket’. Having played in a rock band before deciding he was a rubbish musician, RJ returned to his first love, fiction, to find he is rather better at that. As well as his debut epic fantasy novel, Age of Assassins, RJ has written short stories and historical scripts which have been performed across the country. He has the sort of flowing locks any cavalier would be proud of.
