Can’t Wait Wednesday : Dragonshadow (Heartstone #2) by Elle Katharine White

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 : Dragonshadow (Heartstone #2) by Elle Katharine White.  Not going to lie – I was jumping up and down when I saw this one because Heartstone was so damned good.  Austen and dragons.  Why, yes, thank you very much. *dances a happy dance*

dragonshadow.jpgThe author of Heartstone once again infuses elements of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with her own brand of magic in this addictive fantasy that brings back sparring lovers Aliza and Alastair: fierce warriors who match wits, charm, and swords as they fight an epic war to save their world.

The Battle of North Fields is over—or so Aliza Bentaine, now a Daired, fervently wants to believe. But rumors are spreading of an unseen monster ravaging the isolated Castle Selwyn on the northern border of the kingdom. When she and Alastair are summoned from their honeymoon by the mysterious Lord Selwyn, they must travel with their dragon Akarra through the Tekari-infested Old Wilds of Arle to answer his call.

And they are not alone on this treacherous journey. Shadowing the dragonriders is an ancient evil, a harbinger of a dark danger of which the Worm was only a foretaste. And soon Aliza realizes the terrible truth: the real war is only beginning.

Due for publication November 2018

    *splutter* And HOW has the concept of Austen and dragons escaped me?? I can’t believe I’ve forgotten about THAT one! I hope you love this one, and I’ll have to see if I can get hold of it, too…

    I’m really glad she’s continuing the series, tbh. Can’t wait to see what she can come up with now that she can really get creative 😀

      Yeah, perhaps she’ll step aside from the Austen storyline being interwoven – or perhaps she’ll go for another Austen story.

    I actually had the opposite reaction to Heartstone. I was so hyped because Austen plus Dragons but it wasn’t what I had expected and I think that messed with my enjoyment of the book. Still. I’ll probably pick up the sequel because I’m curious.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – you know what people say about curiousity!! LOL. I did enjoy the first but can totally see how these retellings using a different world and fantasy elements can be difficult to get spot on for everyone. Hope you like the second one better then 😀

    Love, wit, magic, and dragons…oh, my! 🙂 I hope you enjoy this one as much as the first book.
