Can’t Wait Wednesday : Shorefall (Founders #2) by Robert Jackson Bennett

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 : Shorefall (Founders #2) by Robert Jackson Bennett,  I am so looking forward to this.

The upstart firm Foundryside is struggling to make it. Orso Igancio and his star employee, former thief Sancia Grado, are accomplishing brilliant things with scriving, the magical art of encoding sentience into everyday objects, but it’s not enough. The massive merchant houses of Tevanne won’t tolerate competition, and they’re willing to do anything to crush Foundryside.

But even the merchant houses of Tevanne might have met their match. An immensely powerful and deadly entity has been resurrected in the shadows of Tevanne, one that’s not interested in wealth or trade routes: a hierophant, one of the ancient practitioners of scriving. And he has a great fascination for Foundryside, and its employees – especially Sancia.

Now Sancia and the rest of Foundryside must race to combat this new menace, which means understanding the origins of scriving itself – before the hierophant burns Tevanne to the ground.

Expected publication February 2020

    I really should read Foundryside, it sounds very good and I’ve only heard amazing things about it!

    Oh wow, I still have Foundryside in my TBR pile, whoops lol. I should probably get on that at some point. 🙂

      No worries – you still have time and December looks like a reasonably quiet month in terms of review books.

    I beyond excited for this too! I’m so glad it’s coming out next year, otherwise I have no idea how I would squeeze it in🤣

    I’d like to read the first one in this series because I know so many people love it. However, since I had 4 books come in on Overdrive at the same time, I don’t see that happening soon! Hope you love this one and I love the one with the black cover. Such awesome contrast.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I feel you with all the books! Hope you get a chance to read it at some point and yes, these covers are so very different aren’t they.
      Lynn 😀

    I read only raving reviews of Foundryside, but still it remains on my “wanted” list, and I need to do something about that – and soon! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

    I hope you find this one as enjoyable as Foundryside, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I hope so too. Of course, Bennett hasn’t let me down yet so I have great expectations.
      Lynn 😀
