Waiting on Wednesday [#37]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineIt’s a tremendously fun thing to be because you have an excuse to gallivant through the 2016 releases (and probably buy far too many books). It’s also fantastic fun to head over to the official page and check out the link up to what everyone else is waiting on!


This week I’m waiting on . . .

The Wish Granter
by C. J. Redwine

book #2 in the Ravenspire series

An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen.

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling [Rumpelstiltskin]
Author: C. J. Redwine
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Pages: 432 {hardback}

RELEASE DATE: 14th February 2017


The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of Súndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.
Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.
So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.
But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother…and her soul.

I am very extremely excited about this one. Redline is definitely one of my favourite authors and I thoroughly enjoyed her Defiance trilogy – so when The Shadow Queen came out I nearly died of excitement. The book 100% lived up to my expectations so I can’t wait to continue the series. Whilst we’re with a different set of characters, the stories are still set within the same universe (at least, that’s how I understand it) so we get a BUNCH of different fairytale retellings. It’s basically just too exciting to be true. February cannot come quick enough.

There is also currently a giveaway on so be sure to check that out!
