Can’t Wait Wednesday is a book blogging meme hosted over at Wishful Endings. It’s to discuss and spotlight books that you’re excited about but that you haven’t read yet, to get you more excited about your TBR pile! It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.
Set in a gorgeous world of bone and shadow magic, of vengeful gods and defiant chosen ones, The City of Dusk follows the four heirs of four noble houses–each gifted with a divine power–as they form a tenuous alliance to keep their kingdom from descending into a realm-shattering war.
The Four Realms–Life, Death, Light, and Darkness–all converge on the City of Dusk. For each realm there is a god, and for each god there is an heir.
But the gods have withdrawn their favor from the once vibrant and thriving metropolis. And without it, all the realms are dying.
Unwilling to stand by and watch the destruction, the four heirs–Angelica, an elementalist with her eyes set on the throne; Risha, a necromancer fighting to keep the peace; Nikolas, a soldier who struggles to see the light; and Taesia, a shadow-wielding rogue with a reckless heart–will become reluctant allies in the quest to save their city.
But their rebellion will cost them dearly.
I’m SO intensely excited for this book — it feels like the intense dark fantasy steampunk book that I loved as a kid, and now with queer heroes! It comes out on March 22nd. Bookshop link here, Storygraph link here.
