This week I am waiting on
A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #1) by Amanda Bouchet
Publication Date: August 1st 2016
Kingmaker. Soothsayer. Warrior. Mage. Kingdoms would rise and fall for her . . . if she is ever found.
In the icy North, where magic is might, an all-powerful elite ruthlessly guided by a glacial Queen have grown to dominate the world. Now rebellion is stirring in the rough, magic-poor South, where for the first time in memory a warlord has succeeded in uniting the tribal nations.
Stuck in the middle is Cat – circus performer and soothsayer – safely hidden behind heavy make-up, bright colours and the harmless illusion of the circus. Until someone suspects she’s more than she seems . . .
Captured by the Southern warlord Griffin, Cat’s careful camouflage is wearing thin. For how long can – or should – she conceal the true extent of her power? Faced with dragons, homicidal mages, rival Gods and the traitorous longings of her own heart, she must decide: is it time to claim her destiny and fight?
How epic does this book sound? Not only do you have magic but you also have dragons and from the sounds of it, a lot of mythology – which is a huge plus for me. More than that I have a strong feeling that Griffin and Cat will follow the classic hate to love trope aka one of my favourites. This world sounds so exciting and I can wait to meet these characters.
What’s your most anticipated book?
