Can’t Wait Wednesday : Priest of Bones (War for the Rose Throne #1) by Peter McLean

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 : Priest of Bones (War for the Rose Throne #1) by Peter McLean:

Priestof.jpgThe first in a brand new dark and gritty epic fantasy series, where a crime boss comes home from the war only to find that his businesses have been stolen from him.

It’s a dangerous thing, to choose the lesser of two evils.

The war is over, and army priest Tomas Piety finally heads home with Lieutenant Bloody Anne at his side. When he arrives in the Stink, Tomas finds that his empire of crime has been stolen from him while at war. With his gang of Pious Men, Tomas will do whatever it takes to reclaim his businesses. But when he finds himself dragged into a web of political intrigue once again, and is forced to work in secret for the sinister Queen’s Men, everything gets more complicated.

When loyalties stretch to the breaking point and violence only leads to violence, when people have run out of food, and hope, and places to hide, do not be surprised if they have also run out of mercy. As the Pious Men fight shadowy foreign infiltrators in the backstreet taverns and gambling dens of Tomas’s old life it becomes clear; the war is not over.

It is only just beginning.

Due for publication October 2018

    I’m really interested in this as well. I’ve read one book by McLean and I really enjoyed it, although I didn’t finish the series. Great choice, and I love the cover!

      I enjoyed his other books, not sure if he’s continuing with that series or not. I think this should be good.

    I’m not usually a fan of crime boss/family stories, but this sounds interesting!

    Ohhhh! This sounds like the love child of “The Lies of Locke Lamora” and “A Song of Ice and Fire”! And what a beautiful child it promises to be… 🙂

    I had this book added as well, because I believe it’s by the same author of Drake/The Burned Man series right? I liked that one, I’ll be curious to see what he has in store for us next!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It is the same author and I was enjoying that series, I’m wondering if it’s not going to be continued? But, I’m looking forward to this, he has a very gritty style of writing which I think should suit this sort of story.
