Waiting on Wednesday: Of Sand and Malice Made (The Song of the Shattered Sands 0.5)

74757-new2bwow“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week I’m highlighting: Of Sand and Malice Made (The Song of the Shattered Sands 0.5) by Bradley P. Beaulieu.

OfSand and Malice Made.jpgÇeda, the heroine of the widely anticipated, just-released novel Twelve Kings in Sharakhai, is the youngest pit fighter in the history of the great desert city of Sharakhai. In this prequel, she has already made her name in the arena as the fearsome, undefeated White Wolf; none but her closest friends and allies know her true identity.

But this all changes when she crosses the path of Rümayesh, an ehrekh, a sadistic creature forged long ago by the god of chaos. The ehrekh are usually desert dwellers, but this one lurks in the dark corners of Sharakhai, toying with and preying on humans. As Rümayesh works to unmask the White Wolf and claim Çeda for her own, Çeda’s struggle becomes a battle for her very soul.

    Totally missed out on the Twelve Kings in Sharakhai. That book received much more praise and high reviews that I was expecting.

      Ohh, you definitely need to read it. It was so good. So very good.

    I haven’t yet read Twelve Kings but one of these days I need to! Pretty cool that he’s written a prequel.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, Ceda was such a good character and this is an excellent world so I just want to go back.

    “Twelve Kings” was one of the best books I read last year: learning more about Ceda’s past will be a great experience. Thanks for sharing!

    Hmm, kind of odd to do a prequel so soon in the series, but that is one awesome cover.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s great isn’t it! I suppose it is a bit odd but I would definitely read some more of Ceda’s back story.

    Ooooh it’s so pretty! I didn’t know if I wanted to read it though, as the page count made me think this might be a novella, and I usually skip any short stories in a given series. I’ll wait to decide if this is one I need to make an exception for 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it is a novealla by the looks of it and I’m also not usually into them but I figured as it’s about a character that I really like it can’t hurt to get some more back story. Who am I kidding! I just simply want to return to this world.

    Twelve Kings is on I regret not picking up last year

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really loved it – but you can’t read all of the books and I really regret not getting time to read Black Wolves.

    Somehow I totally missed Twelve Kings in Sharakhai, but based on a) how awesome this sounds and b) the gorgeous cover, I clearly need to read it! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Twelve Kings was so good – I can’t recommend it enough to you. I think you would love it. The main character, well, you’ll fall in love with her because she’s just awesome, the world building is superb and the story is gripping. I don’t really read short stories often but I will pick up this one because I want to return to the world.
      Lynn 😀
