“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
Publisher: Henry Holt (BYR)
Expected Date: July 30, 2019
A future chieftain
Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.
A fugitive prince
When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses—and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.
A too-cunning bodyguard
Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?
I had the pleasure of meeting Molly at Sirens Con last fall and immediately added The Merciful Crow to Goodreads when she talked about it. Needless to say I’m eagerly anticipating this book and from the cover/description I know I’m going to freaking love it!
Are you excited for The Merciful Crow? Love the cover?
