Waiting on Wednesday - Vecka 31

Waiting on Wednesday påbörjades hos Breaking the Spine i syfte för att man ska lyfta fram de kommande böcker som man ser fram emot väldigt mycket.

The Mirror Empire av Kameron Hurley
4:e september 2014

Beskrivning från GoodreadsOn the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past… while a world goes to war with itself.

In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from another realm are decimating whole cities, leaving behind nothing but ash and ruin.

As the dark star of the cataclysm rises, an illegitimate ruler is tasked with holding together a country fractured by civil war, a precocious young fighter is asked to betray his family and a half-Dhai general must choose between the eradication of her father’s people or loyalty to her alien Empress.

Through tense alliances and devastating betrayal, the Dhai and their allies attempt to hold against a seemingly unstoppable force as enemy nations prepare for a coming together of worlds as old as the universe itself.

In the end, one world will rise  and many will perish.

Kommentar: Jag tycker att den här boken låter riktigt intressant och det sitter aldrig fel med lite episk fantasy. Dessutom verkar den vara en fräsch fläkt i genren då jag har hört att Hurley behandlar könsroller på ett väldigt bra sätt, vilket alltid gör mig glad att höra.
