Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Bone Ships (The Tide Child #1) by R.J. Barker


Today is the start of Wyrd and Wonder – a month long event that is a celebration of fantasy.  Check out the details here and join in the fun in whatever way you would like to do so.

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking Can't waitthe 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 :  The Bone Ships (The Tide Child #1) by R.J. Barker – could there be a better way to kick off my first post for W&W?  Check it out:

BoneShipsA crew of condemned criminals embark on a suicide mission to hunt the first sea dragon seen in centuries in the first book of this adventure fantasy trilogy.

Violent raids plague the divided isles of the Scattered Archipelago. Fleets constantly battle for dominance and glory, and no commander stands higher among them than “Lucky” Meas Gilbryn.

But betrayed and condemned to command a ship of criminals, Meas is forced on suicide mission to hunt the first living sea-dragon in generations. Everyone wants it, but Meas Gilbryn has her own ideas about the great beast. In the Scattered Archipelago, a dragon’s life, like all lives, is bound in blood, death and treachery.

Due for publication : September 2019

    Ooh, were did you get that Wyrd and Wonder banner? I want to use it! I think this book sounds really good too. And I want to try Barker since so many people love her books.

      I made it – feel free to use it. I wish it had been better – it’s a bit wonky but I’m too lazy to redo it!!! Even though I enjoy doing that sort of thing.

    Everyone seems to be participating in Wyrd & Wonder! And this cover looks awesome ❤

      The cover is just gorgeous. I would automatically want to read it anyway but if I had no idea who this author was this cover would pull me in.

    I’ve seen this one floating around netgalley and thought about it, not sure if it’s my thing exactly but it does sound interesting, and I love the cover! Hope you enjoy this one.
