Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Witness for the dead, (The Goblin Emperor #2) by Katherine Addison

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 Witness for the dead, (The Goblin Emperor #2) by Katherine Addison.

TheWitnessA standalone novel in the fantastic world of Katherine Addison’s award-winning The Goblin Emperor.

When young half-goblin emperor Maia sought to learn who had killed his father and half-brothers in The Goblin Emperor, he turned to an obscure resident of his court, a Witness for The Dead named Thara Celehar.

Now, far from the court, Thara Celehar lives in quasi-exile, neither courtier nor prelate, serving the common people of the city. He lives modestly, communicating with the dead as is his duty.

But his decency and fundamental honesty will not permit him to live quietly. Celehar will follow the truth wherever it leads him no matter who may be implicated in murder, fraud, or ancient injustices.

Expected publication : June 2021

    Yes! I can’t wait to return to this world. Glad to know it’s a stand alone too, because I don’t know how much I remember of The Goblin Emperor, lol.

      I think it would all come rushing back to you – but this seems to be about the character that was The Witness for the Dead – a character that I was really curious about if I recall correctly.

    I didn’t realize this was a standalone, I may read it! Although I really want to read The Goblin Emperor😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      This seems to be about one of the characters from the Goblin Emperor and one that I was very interested in. I suppose you could try this first and see if you like the style.
