Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Girl and the Stars (Book of the Ice #1) by Mark Lawrence

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 : The Girl and the Stars (Book of the Ice #1) by Mark Lawrence – I don’t need to explain why I want this book in my life do I?

TheGirlandtheStars.jpgA stunning new epic fantasy series following a young outcast who must fight with everything she has to survive, set in the same world as Red Sister.

In the ice, east of the Black Rock, there is a hole into which broken children are thrown. Yaz’s people call it the Pit of the Missing and now it is drawing her in as she has always known it would.

To resist the cold, to endure the months of night when even the air itself begins to freeze, requires a special breed. Variation is dangerous, difference is fatal. And Yaz is not the same.

Yaz’s difference tears her from the only life she’s ever known, away from her family, from the boy she thought she would spend her days with, and has to carve out a new path for herself in a world whose existence she never suspected. A world full of difference and mystery and danger.

Yaz learns that Abeth is older and stranger than she had ever imagined. She learns that her weaknesses are another kind of strength and that the cruel arithmetic of survival that has always governed her people can be challenged.

Expected publication April 2020

    I wonder if this can be read without reading Red Sister first? I’d love to jump in but I probably don’t have time to catch up first.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Well, it’s a new series so I imagine it’s been written with the idea that new readers can jump straight in. And I’ve heard good things already about it so I’m definitely excited.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, and normally that would make me feel nervous about the quality but his books are brilliant.
