Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday
I was really excited when I discovered this new author, Bex Hogan, who hails from Cambridgeshire, near me! (Umm, I do hope that doesn’t sound as stalkerish as I think it may have done. I’m just excited for this book, and very hopeful for this author’s success! lol) So, I will be keeping an eye on this up-and-coming writer (as a potential fan only) who looks very promising. What do you think? Is there a fine line between being an over-excited fan and a stalker? No, seriously, what do you think of this book? Look good?
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:
Viper: Book 1 (Isles of Storm and Sorrow) Paperback – 18 Apr 2019
By Bex Hogan
Marianne has been training to be the Viper for her entire life – to serve and protect the King and the citizens of The Twelve Isles – but to become the Viper and protect the islands she loves she must find the strength to defeat her father. A new fantasy trilogy perfect for fans of Sarah J Maas.
He will make me a killer.
Or he will have me killed.
That is my destiny.
Seventeen-year-old Marianne is fated to one day become the Viper, defender of the Twelve Isles.
But the reigning Viper stands in her way. Corrupt and merciless, he prowls the seas in his warship, killing with impunity, leaving only pain and suffering in his wake.
He’s the most dangerous man on the ocean . . . and he is Marianne’s father.
She was born to protect the islands. But can she fight for them if it means losing her family, her home, the boy she loves – and perhaps even her life?
A brave heroine. An impossible dilemma. An epic new fantasy trilogy set on the high seas.
Raised on a healthy diet of fantasy and fairy tales, Bex Hogan has spent much of her life lost in daydreams. Writing her stories down was a natural progression and now she enjoys sharing her time between living in the real world and escaping to her imagination. A Cornish girl at heart, Bex now lives in Cambridgeshire with her husband, two beautiful daughters and a fluffy cocker spaniel. She might be found riding horses, talking to her plants or eating marzipan. Or not. Her debut novel, VIPER, is being published in April 2019 by Orion Children’s Books.
