Can’t Wait Wednesday : Redemption’s Blade: After The War by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Redemption’s Blade: After The War by Adrian Tchaikovsky.  I want this book in my life.

redemption.jpgTen years ago, the renegade demigod known as the Kinslayer returned. His armies of monsters issued from the pits of the earth, spearheaded by his brutal Yorughan soldiers. He won every battle, leaving burnt earth and corruption behind. Thrones toppled and cities fell as he drove all before him. And then he died. A handful of lucky heroes and some traitors amongst his own, and the great Kinslayer was no more.

Celestaine was one such hero and now she has tasked herself to correct the worst excesses of the Kinslayer and bring light back to her torn-up world. With two Yorughan companions she faces fanatics, war criminals and the monsters and minions the Kinslayer left behind as the fragile alliances of the war break down into feuding, greed and mistrust.

The Kinslayer may be gone, but he cast a long shadow she may never truly escape.

    Is this a series? I’d love to read it but I could figure out if it was a standalone.

      Yeah, I’m not sure – I kind of think it’s going to be the first in a series but on GR it looks more like a standalone.

    This sounds AWESOME!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It does sound good. I like the idea of picking up after the dust has settled.

    Like Tammy, I’m curious if this is a series. I think I recognize the author from somewhere. I do like the cover and hope you love it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      You probably do recognise the author, he’s had quite a number of books out recently – Dogs of War, The Tiger and the Wolf series. I like his writing style so far so I’m keen to give this a shot.

    I’ve only read the one novella from Tchaikovsky, but I need to read more of his work.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve read a couple of his books and a short story from Monstrous Little Voices and I really like his writing.

    What an amazing story this must be – and that striking cover keeps whispering: “read me… read me…” 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It sounds really good – and I like this author – and the cover definitely talks to me too.
      Lynn 😀

  6. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I had the same question as Tammy and had to look it up right away to see if it’s a start to a new series or a stand alone. It looks to be! Gosh, I hope so, I’d love to read another of his books, and for once I may have a chance to get my hands on this because it’s from Solaris!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yay – to be honest I wasn’t sure if it was a standalone or not – it doesn’t really make it very clear does it. I do like this author though so I’d love to see how this one pans out – plus, I like the idea of a book that picks up after things have been settled – we don’t really touch on the ‘what came after’ very often.

    Oh wow! I didn’t know this one was coming out! I LOVE his work – and this angle sounds fabulous. Thank you for sharing, Lynn:))

    • @lynnsbooks

      No problem – I only picked it up because I saw a tweet with the cover. It does sound rather wonderful.
      Lynn 😀

    If this is the first in a series I will TOTALLY read this!!!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think it is the first in a series – I wasn’t sure but I had a bit of a dig around and I’m sure I saw it mentioned that this was No.1.
      Lynn 😀
