Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I've been participating in Waiting on Wednesday for over 5 years because Wednesday is my favorite day of the week!
I love sharing and discovering new books.


Hardcover, 528 pages
Expected publication: March 7th 2017 by Viking Books for Young Readers

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Mere months ago, gunslinger Amani al'Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she's fighting to liberate the entire desert nation of Miraji from a bloodthirsty sultan who slew his own father to capture the throne.

When Amani finds herself thrust into the epicenter of the regime—the Sultan's palace—she's determined to bring the tyrant down. Desperate to uncover the Sultan's secrets by spying on his court, she tries to forget that Jin disappeared just as she was getting closest to him, and that she's a prisoner of the enemy. But the longer she remains, the more she questions whether the Sultan is really the villain she's been told he is, and who’s the real traitor to her sun-bleached, magic-filled homeland.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Miraji, about the rebellion, about djinni and Jin and the Blue-Eyed Bandit. In Traitor to the Throne, the only certainty is that everything will change.

If you've been around my blog before, you may know that I don't read fantasy. But I made an exception and read Rebel of the Sands, and....... it was awesome! But, ugh, is this really 528 pages????? It's okay. Deep breath. I can do this.

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. Wednesday is not my favorite day of the week, but WoW is definitely my favorite weekly meme and I love finding new books and expanding my TBR :) I hope we both enjoy this book, though the length scares me too lol.

    1. Maybe I should say Wednesday is my favorite day of the week on my blog? LOL. I work at home so all days are a blur for me. But I definitely love interacting with other blogs on Wednesdays.
      Thanks for stopping by, Brittany. Here's hoping we both get through this book easily. I won't let the length deter me!

  6. Oh, YES, YES, YES!!!!! I own both books now, so I can go from one directly to the other!! I don't have the hardcover of "Traitor To The Throne", though, but instead, the paperback edition. That was because I wanted the covers to match. The "Rebel of the Sands" hardcover has an abstract, very decorative cover design. The cover of the sequel is totally different -- it's a realistic illustration. I'm not that happy with it, either. So I got the paperback.

    If you want to see the cover of the edition I bought, you can do so at this Goodreads link:

    I know....the books don't match anyway, because one is a hardcover, and the other a paperback. Oh, well! But at least the cover designs show some consistency. Lol.

    Thanks for commenting on my "Can't Wait Wednesday" post!! Enjoy your weekend!! <3 :)
