Today I thought I join in Waiting on Wednesday. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that originally created by Jill at Breaking the Spine but has since been adapted with Can’t Wait Wednesday by Teresa at Wishful Endings.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature that showcases upcoming release that we are dying to get to!
Into the Crooked Place (Into the Crooked Place #1) by Alexandra Christo
Published by: Feiwel and Friends
Publication date: 8 October 2019
The streets of Creije are for the deadly and the dreamers, and four crooks in particular know just how much magic they need up their sleeve to survive.
Tavia, a busker ready to pack up her dark-magic wares and turn her back on Creije for good. She’ll do anything to put her crimes behind her.
Wesley, the closest thing Creije has to a gangster. After growing up on streets hungry enough to swallow the weak whole, he won’t stop until he has brought the entire realm to kneel before him.
Karam, a warrior who spends her days watching over the city’s worst criminals and her nights in the fighting rings, making a deadly name for herself.
And Saxony, a resistance fighter hiding from the very people who destroyed her family, and willing to do whatever it takes to get her revenge.
Everything in their lives is going to plan, until Tavia makes a crucial mistake: she delivers a vial of dark magic—a weapon she didn’t know she had—to someone she cares about, sparking the greatest conflict in decades. Now these four magical outsiders must come together to save their home and the world, before it’s too late. But with enemies at all sides, they can trust nobody. Least of all each other.
Why I can’t wait to read this
YA fantasy is one of my all time favourite genres to reach for and since a few of my favourite series have wrapped up so I’m excited to get to some new ones.
I love an ensemble cast of characters. I’m interested to see how they come together and enough the whole gang vibe they have going. The world sounds interesting and I think has a Russian inspired world.
There is a heist and gang and yes people will have some comparisons to Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi but I love these themes and cannot wait to get to the series.
That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.
Until next time, happy reading!
