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. This month I’m participating in Sci-Fi Month hosted by Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow, and celebrating all things science fiction with weekly sci-fi Waiting on Wednesday picks! Here’s what I’m excited about this week:
Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can’t resist her, even if her ship is an antique.
As for Nev, he’s a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary.
But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they’re more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive.
Nev’s mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she’ll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power—and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew.
Shadow Run (Kaitan Chronicles #1) by AdriAnne Strickland & Michael Miller. Releases in March 2017 from Delacorte Press. I don’t know about you, but I tend to jump on anything out there that compares itself to Firefly, so of course I had to add this book to my TBR! Looks like a fun start to a new space opera series.
Let me know what you’re waiting on this week:-D
