Waiting on Wednesday: Desencant of the Crane
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows us to spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating to be released.
It would be the last week of my blog where I would find the cover and blurb for a book that equaled love at first sight. The cover reveal was just this Monday (August 28) but this is a must read for me already. The blurb has such a great appeal and gravitas. A complete must and I'm completely in love.
Release Date: April 2, 2019
Blurb: "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.
This masterpiece is a must read for me. What about you? Thanks for coming during my final week.
