Can’t Wait Wednesday : A Time Of Blood (Of Blood and Bone #2) by John Gwynne

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 : A Time Of Blood (Of Blood and Bone #2) by John Gwynne.  I loved A Time of Dread.  It was a 5* read for me and so I’m so excited for this book.

AtimeofbloodDefy the darkness. Defend the light.

Drem and his friends flee the battle at Starstone Lake to warn the Order of the Bright Star. They’ve witnessed horrors they’ll never forget, such as magic warping men into beasts. But worst of all, they’ve seen a demon rise from the dead – making it even more powerful. Now Fritha, the demons’ high priestess, is hunting Drem’s party.

Concealed in Forn Forest, Riv struggles to understand her half-breed heritage. She represents the warrior angels’ biggest secret, one which could break their society. And when she’s found by the Ben-Elim’s high captain, he swoops in for the kill.

As demonic forces multiply, they send a mighty war-host to overthrow the angel’s stronghold. This could decimate the fractured Ben-Elim. And their allies in the Order may be too overwhelmed to send aid – with Fritha and her monstrous beasts closing in. Like heroes of old, Drem and the Bright Star’s warriors must battle to save their land. But can the light triumph when the dark is rising?

A Time of Blood is the spectacular follow-up to John Gwynne’s A Time of Dread.

Due for publication April 2019 – I can’t wait.  Excitement am I!!!!

    I’ve not read the first one but I could really stare at this cover for some time. Of course, it also makes me want to stab someone – don’t worry, I had a list long before I visited your blog this morning 🙂

    Everyone is raving about this series. I’d better hop on the bandwagon 😁

      I’ve not read the author’s previous series but as this is set in the same world but is a new start it made a great point to dive in without feeling too behind – and I loved the first so have high hopes for this one.

    • @lynnsbooks

      The first was very good so I am excited for this one.

    Definitely keeping an eye out for this one, the first was so good 😊

  5. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    I loved A Time of Dread passionately and that led me to start his previous series The Faithful and the Fallen (I’ve just started book 2, Valour), so I’m more than looking forward to this one: John Gwynne is a master storyteller indeed… 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      He really is – and I can’t believe I waited so long to read his books.

    I have Malice, which I MUST have a go at reading… I do love the look of this cover, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think I also have a copy of Malice – but I got so far behind that I decided to start with this series instead.

    Snap! I did this book to this week! Massive high hopes for it, sounds great, Petrik has already written an amazing review and the cover is stunning too! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I love the cover and I can’t wait to read this one. I suppose more to the point I can’t believe how long I waited to read something by this author.
      Lynn 😀
