Waiting on Wednesday 37

May 15, 2013 Bookish 11

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to showcase eagerly awaited upcoming releases.

This week I’ve picked The Tower Broken by Mazarkis Williams

  • Expected publication: 7th November 2013 by Jo Fletcher Books
  • Format: Paperback
  • Series: Tower and Knife, Book 3
  • Goodreads / The Book Depository

Nooria is at breaking point. The nothing bleeds out the very essence of all, of stone, silk – and souls. Sarmin thought he had stopped it, but it is spreading towards Cerana – and he is powerless to halt the destruction.

Even as Cerana fills with refugees, the Yrkmen armies arrive, offering to spare Sarmin’s people if they will convert to the Mogyrk faith.

Time is running out for Sarmin and Mesema: the Mage’s Tower is cracked; the last mage, sent to find a mysterious pattern-worker in the desert, has vanished; and Sarmin believes his kidnapped brother Daveed still has a part to play.

The walls are crumbling around them …

Okay, we have to talk about that cover. AMAZING right? I think it will look absolutely gorgeous next to my copies of The Emperor’s Knife and Knife Sworn. I love this series, I love the characters and the world and I cannot wait for The Tower Broken. I have high hopes that it will conclude this breathtaking trilogy well. I think what makes this series work is how the author has taken epic fantasy back to its roots, and then completely turned the tropes on their heads. And the impressive covers.

    I haven’t read the first two books in the series but this one sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy reading this one when it comes out.

    I planned for this book to be my wow but then I saw Clockwork Heart on NetGalley and picked that one instead. I love the covers for this series and I can’t wait to read more about the tower – that’s the part that was least explained and I was intrigued by it.
    Thanks for stopping by my WOW.

    Í just had to take one look at those covers, and I’m already hooked!! What a WONDERFUL selection for this week’s “Waiting On Wednesdaÿ”! The covers have a slight Tolkienissh feel to them, but the plot of this last one sounds VERY original! I’ve simply GOT to have these three!! Thanks for featuring the last book, and showing the entire trilogy!

    Also, thanks for dropping by my WOW and commenting!! 🙂
