“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted atBreaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
So I missed last week and the change to post the link to the contest I wanted to. Sigh. Life. So this week we are picking up were we left off two weeks ago….
Eli Monpress is brilliant. He’s incorrigible. And he’s a thief.
He’s also still at large, which drives Miranda Lyonette crazy. While she’s been kicked out of the Spirit Court, Eli’s had plenty of time to plan his next adventure. But now the tables have turned, because Miranda has a new job — and an opportunity to capture a certain thief.
Things are about to get exciting for Eli. He’s picked a winner for his newest heist. His target: the Duke of Gaol’s famous “thief-proof” citadel. Eli knows Gaol is a trap, but what’s life without challenges? Except the Duke is one of the wealthiest men in the world, a wizard who rules his duchy with an iron fist, and an obsessive perfectionist with only one hobby: catching Eli.
It seems that everyone is hunting for Eli Monpress.
If you go to her website (I think it is a her), you can read the first chapter. I have not because I do not need to be that worked up in a lather over a book that isn’t even out yet, when I have so many other books still to read. I will tantalize myself with the cover. By the way.. awsome cover designs for the books. Seriously, total luck out with all the cliche in capes that has found its way on the covers of fantasy novels lately.
