Can’t Wait Wednesday : Priest of Lies (War for the Rose Throne #2) 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 Lies (War for the Rose Throne #2) by Peter McLean.  I’m very excited to see what happens in book 2.  My review for Priest of Bones is here.

Priest of Lies.jpgTomas Piety has been many things: soldier, priest, gangster…and spy. As Tomas’s power grows, the nobility better watch their backs, in this dark and gritty epic fantasy series.

People are weak, and the poorer and more oppressed they are, the weaker they become–until they can’t take it anymore. And when they rise up…may the gods help their oppressors.

When Tomas Piety returned from the war, he just wanted to rebuild his empire of crime with his gang of Pious Men. But his past as a spy for the Queen’s Men drew him back in and brought him more power than he ever imagined.

Now, with half of his city in ashes and the Queen’s Men at his back, the webs of political intrigue stretch out from the capital to pull Tomas in. Dannsburg is calling.

In Dannsburg the nobility fight with words, not blades, but the results are every bit as bloody. In this pit of beasts, Tomas must decide once and for all whether he is truly the people’s champion…or just a priest of lies.

    I’m looking forward to this as well, I enjoyed the first book but didn’t fall head over heels. Still, I am curious to see where the story goes😁

    This is one of my “maybe” books because I liked the first one well enough, but with all the books on my plate I will probably have to prioritize others!

      So many books – I don’t even know how you manage it tbh. I’m always torn between envy and relief when I see your stacking the shelves (although I love those posts because they give me ideas about what to request!)

    Oohh, it sounds intriguingly good! Word fighting can sure be a bloody sport.

      Yeah, I had a couple of issues with the first book but nothing that would stop me wanting to pick up the next one.
