Waiting on Wednesday: The Ninth Rain (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy #1) by Jen Williams

“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.  My book this week is : Waiting on Wednesday: The Ninth Rain (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy #1) by Jen Williams.  I absolutely love Jen Williams Copper Cat series and can’t wait for this to be released.  Fortunately, not too long a wait: February 23rd 2017.

ninthrainThe great city of Ebora once glittered with gold. Now its streets are stalked by wolves. Tormalin the Oathless has no taste for sitting around waiting to die while the realm of his storied ancestors falls to pieces – talk about a guilt trip. Better to be amongst the living, where there are taverns full of women and wine.

When eccentric explorer, Lady Vincenza ‘Vintage’ de Grazon, offers him employment, he sees an easy way out. Even when they are joined by a fugitive witch with a tendency to set things on fire, the prospect of facing down monsters and retrieving ancient artefacts is preferable to the abomination he left behind.

But not everyone is willing to let the Eboran empire collapse, and the adventurers are quickly drawn into a tangled conspiracy of magic and war. For the Jure’lia are coming, and the Ninth Rain must fall… 

I can’t wait for this book!  Literally, I’m jumping up and down!  It sounds so good.

    Ooh I love the sound of this! I do need to read her Copper Cat series since you recommend it, but I’m adding this to my list as well. Here’s hoping there will also be a U.S. release:-)

      The Copper Cat was so good, perfect epic feeling fantasy but also manages to inject a lot of fun.

    Hmmm…a bird a bird a bird. I think birds are running a close second to octopuses for my “Put it on the cover and I’ll buy it” award 🙂 This sounds really good and I’m going to have to check out this author some more. Thanks for putting this on my radar.

    The “witch with a tendency to set things on fire” sounds interesting… Ok, no, it sounds downright thrilling! 🙂
    Adding to the list…

    Jen Williams has been on my radar ever since you reviewed the first Copper Cat book, but I’m a bit wary of starting new series when I’m already behind…so this is perfect! No need to play catch up and it sounds just as good as the CC series. 🙂
