Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Trouble With Peace (The Age of Madness #2) by Joe Abercrombie

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 Trouble With Peace (The Age of Madness #2) by Joe Abercrombie (because I loved A Little Hatred).  Definitely a woohoo moment.

Conspiracy. Betrayal. Rebellion.
Peace is just another kind of battlefield . . .

Savine dan Glokta, once Adua’s most powerful investor, finds her judgement, fortune and reputation in tatters. But she still has all her ambitions, and no scruple will be permitted to stand in her way.

For heroes like Leo dan Brock and Stour Nightfall, only happy with swords drawn, peace is an ordeal to end as soon as possible. But grievances must be nursed, power seized and allies gathered first, while Rikke must master the power of the Long Eye . . . before it kills her.

Unrest worms into every layer of society. The Breakers still lurk in the shadows, plotting to free the common man from his shackles, while noblemen bicker for their own advantage. Orso struggles to find a safe path through the maze of knives that is politics, only for his enemies, and his debts, to multiply.

The old ways are swept aside, and the old leaders with them, but those who would seize the reins of power will find no alliance, no friendship, and no peace, lasts forever.

Expected publication : September 2020

    September? That’s good news! I finally read the long-postponed First Law trilogy and I’m now able to enjoy the continuation of this new saga armed with the knowledge of past events. Thank you for showcasing this!!! 🙂

    You and Mogsy both highlighted this, and I like the way you feature both covers. I think I like the UK cover best😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      I like to feature both covers more often than not – otherwise sometimes you totally wouldn’t recognise it’s the same book.
