Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday
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:
This book has just been published, yesterday, but I’m yet to get my grubby mitts onto it. I wanted to share it as I thought you’d be as excited as I am to read this – haha! Gareth Worthington is currently touring with Xpresso books, which is how I got to hear about this book when I visited Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews over at FUONLYKNEW.COM – Do go can check out Laura’s blog, she has a great taste in books and I’m always discovering new reads there!
Tomorrow I’ll be featuring this author and joining in with his Xpresso Books Book tour, too!
Children of the Fifth Sun: Echelon
by Gareth Worthington
Published by: Vesuvian Books
Publication date: August 14th 2018

Children of the Fifth Sun: Echelon
SHE THOUGHT THERE WAS NOTHING STRONGER THAN A MOTHER’S BOND.
SHE WAS WRONG.
Fifteen thousand years ago, the knowledge bringers—an amphibious, non-humanoid species known as the Huahuqui—came after a great global flood, gifting humans with math, science and civility. We killed them all.
Seventy years ago, we found one of their corpses preserved in ice and eventually created a clone, named K’in. Our governments squabbled over the creature and we killed that, too.
Now, a sinkhole in Siberia has opened revealing new secrets and humans may once again have a chance to prove we deserve the gifts the Huahuqui bestowed.
Freya Nilsson has spent the last five years trying to forget her role in the Huahuqui cloning program. Instead, she hid her son, KJ, from the regimes and agencies who she believed would exploit him for the powers he acquired through his father’s bond with K’in.
An innocent trip to help KJ understand his abilities results in the global conspiracy she fought to bury exploding back to life. Chased by new foes, and hounded to put the needs of the world first, all Freya can think of is protecting KJ—at all costs.

Great choice! I shared this book too. My sister loved the first in the series and now I’m wanting to read them also. Happy Hump Day!
I haven’t read this one yet but plan on it! Great choice!
Oh, this does sound super intriguing, especially the setting! Great share!
Thanks Jen 😁
I love the sound of this one! Mother bonds and science fiction aren’t normally mentioned in the same blurb… I hope you enjoy it, Sassy and many thanks for sharing:)
Ooh, this sounds interesting and the cover is stunning! Great pick!
Looks pretty to good! Hope you enjoy. ♥
Not sure if this one is for me, but I find the cover very appealing. Hope you get a copy soon!
Wow what an amazing cover! And a cool premise too. Ancient aliens, cloning… *nods*
Laura’s blog is awesome BTW!
Thank you for this! I hope you like it!
Thank you for stopping by! I’m sure I will 😃👌
This does sound good and cool cover. Laura’s blog is awesome and the downfall of my TBR at times.
Its funny, I completely missed the kid on the cover the first time I looked at it. Sounds good!
I did that too! 😍
I haven’t heard about this one before. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Thank you, lynn!
