Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday
Today’s excitement is all about a book that is just out this month, but I am eager to read it! Have you done so already?
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, and my version is a mix of what I’m waiting to read, whether it’s a new release that is not out yet, or an older book on my TBR shelf, which I really want to read but haven’t got around to it yet.
Here’s my ‘Can’t wait to read’, book for this week:
Before the Broken Star (The Evermore Chronicles)
A fierce young female adventurer battles time itself to claim her destiny in a sweeping new fantasy saga from the author of the Hundredth Queen series.
Everley Donovan is living on borrowed time. The lone survivor of her family’s unexplained assassination, she was saved by an ingeniously crafted clockwork heart. But the time she was given won’t last forever. Now, every tick-tock reminds her how fragile her existence is and hastens her quest to expose Killian Markham, the navy admiral who shattered her world and left her for dead. But Everley’s hunt for justice will be a long and hard-won voyage.
Her journey takes her to a penal colony on a cursed isle, where she will be married off and charged to build the new world. It is here, and beyond, that hidden realms hide, treasures are unearthed, her family secrets are buried, and young love will test the strength of her makeshift heart. When Everley discovers Markham may not be who he seems, her pursuit for truth is bound to his redemption, her tragic history, and her astonishing destiny.

I haven’t read any of this author’s books before and I need to change that! This does sound like a fantastic fantasy novel. Thanks for sharing it! 🙂
Thank you!! Glad you’re intrigued!
A clockwork heart? Oh wow, I like the sounds of this — and her destiny? Oh yes please, I like the sounds of this!
Yes, and it’s available now… I thought that too, the clockwork heart is an unusual slant.
I like the idea that she is mindful of her own mortality being a motivation for her actions. It sounds like a really good story. My WoW
I agree, it’s a race against the clock, or her ticking heart! That really appealed to me too.
Everything about this book sounds awesome! And that cover is gorgeous too! 🙂
Love the title and cover of this one! Fingers crossed it’s as good as it sounds.
Yes!! Fingers crossed 🙂 One never knows… haha!
I can tell you’re super excited for this one. Hope it doesn’t disappoint!
Ooh a clockwork heart and a fantasy set at sea? Love the sound of this.
