Waiting on Wednesday [209] GAME OF SHADOWS by Erika Lewis

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers.

Here’s what I’m waiting on this week:

Game of ShadowsEthan Makkai thought that seeing ghosts was the worst of his problems. Between his ethereal gift and life with a single mother hell-bent on watching his every move, he feels imprisoned. When Ethan sees a chance to escape, to leave the house by himself for the first time in his life, he seizes it, unaware that this first taste of freedom will cost him everything.

Ethan is thrown into a strange and eerie world, like nothing he’s ever seen. He’s assaulted by dive-bombing birds and rescued by a stranger who claims to be his bodyguard. His apartment is trashed, and his mother is kidnapped to a place Ethan never knew existedβ€”a hidden continent called Tara.

Travelling to Tara in search of his mother, Ethan discovers that everything he knows about his life is a lie. His mother is royalty. His father is not dead. His destiny is likely to get him killed.

Confronted by a vicious sorcerer determined to destroy the Makkai family, Ethan must garner strength from his gift and embrace his destiny if he’s going to save his mother and all the people of Tara, including the beautiful girl he’s fallen for.


Game of Shadows by Erika Lewis. Releases in February 2017 from Tor Books. Despite the rather generic title, and the fact that the guy on the horse looks like he’s playing polo with a sword (!), this sounds pretty good. Plus I’m intrigued by the evil monster thing chasing him!

Let me know what you’re waiting on:-D

      I know, the cover….not so much. Which is weird for me, I usually feature books with covers that I love. But I’m intrigued by the story!

  1. Tammy V.

    I would read this one too. I like the monster on the cover but the guy and the horse just don’t mesh with it.

  2. Thank heavens this one is already on my wishlist so you didn’t make my TBR grow even more. I totally agree about the polo think but the synopsis sounds great and as long as I don’t analyze the cover too much, I find it pleasing enough. I do like the evil skull??? in the background. Great choice!

  3. There are too many book titles with the words “Game” and “Shadows” in it, lol! Before I clicked the link in my feed to your post I thought I knew this one, then realized that it was completely unfamiliar to me when I saw the cover with the sword-bearing “polo player” πŸ˜€

  4. Well the cover certainly amused everyone – I love the Ralph Lauren link from DJ!
    The book sounds very intriguing though, cover issues aside, and I’ve been loving me some Tor books recently!
