Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine. The idea is to share books that are soon to be releasing and that you’re excited about!
Each Wednesday I’ll be sharing with you the books that I can’t wait to release!
This week I chose DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE by Joan He. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this gorgeous book and I cant wait to finally start reading!
Tyrants cut out hearts. Rulers sacrifice their own
Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she’s thrust into power, suddenly the queen of an unstable kingdom. Determined to find her father’s killer, Hesina does something desperate: she engages the aid of a soothsayer—a treasonous act, punishable by death… because in Yan, magic was outlawed centuries ago.
Using the information illicitly provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust even her family, Hesina turns to Akira—a brilliant and alluring investigator who’s also a convicted criminal with secrets of his own. With the future of her kingdom at stake, can Hesina find justice for her father? Or will the cost be too high?
In this shimmering Chinese-inspired fantasy, debut author Joan He introduces a determined and vulnerable young heroine struggling to do right in a world brimming with deception.
