Hello and welcome to Colsten Can’t Wait! Every Wednesday I see so many blogs posting “Waiting On Wednesday’s” where they highlight upcoming books they are excited for every Wednesday! I’ve always wanted to particpate and I finally am. I’m just putting my own spin on it! Every Wednesday, I’m going to highlight an upcoming book that I’m excited for, but include a picture of my cat Colsten, since he also gets excited for new books! For this first week we picked Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto!
In a world ruled by fierce warrior queens, a grand empire was built upon the backs of Phoenix Riders—legendary heroes who soared through the sky on wings of fire—until a war between two sisters ripped it all apart. Sixteen years later, Veronyka is a war orphan who dreams of becoming a Phoenix Rider from the stories of old. After a shocking betrayal from her controlling sister, Veronyka strikes out alone to find the Riders—even if that means disguising herself as a boy to join their ranks. Just as Veronyka finally feels like she belongs, her sister turns up and reveals a tangled web of lies between them that will change everything. And meanwhile, the new empire has learned of the Riders’ return and intends to destroy them once and for all.
I heard warrior queens and I was sold. It is a huge resounding YES to high fantasy with fierce female characters. Phoenix’s are something that I’ve heard a lot about, but I’ve never really read a book that centers on them and I’m so excited that there is one that’s coming out soonish! This books sounds stock full of everything that I love. It sounds so magical and epic and strong. I cannot wait read it!
Crown of Feathers comes out February 12th, 2019!
You can add it on Goodreads and pre-order it in the meantime!
Thank you for reading!
