Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – Salvation’s Fire: After the War – Book 2 of the After the War series by Justina Robson

#epic fantasy #adventure #feisty heroine

The thrilling new fantasy adventure from the world of Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Redemption’s Blade.

The Tzarkomen necromancers sacrificed a thousand women to create a Bride for the Kinslayer so he would spare them in the war. But the Kinslayer is dead and now the creation intended to ensure his eternal rule lies abandoned by its makers in the last place in the world that anyone would look for it. Which doesn’t prevent someone finding her by accident.

Will the Bride return the gods to the world or will she bring the end of days? It all depends on the one who found her, Kula, a broken-hearted little girl with nothing left to lose.

I was so excited to trip over this one, having absolutely loved the first book in the series Redemption’s Blade – see my review here. And I’m especially thrilled to see that the author of this instalment is the fabulous Justina Robson – see my review of Down to the Bone. So I actually whooped aloud when I saw I’d been approved for it😊.

  1. I’m definitely interested in what you think of it, especially as a sequel by another author. I like Tchaikovsky’s stuff, so at some point I’ll probably add that book to my tbr. But I’ll be reserving judgement about this one until I see some reviews…

    • As far as I can gather, it’s set in the same world as Redemption’s Blade, but is another corner of the sandbox… Which given that the premise is awesome, is very promising.

  2. I did not realize this is a series where the books are taken up by different authors! Not that I mind, of course – being a fan of media tie-ins and such gets one used to multiple authors writing in the same universe. I actually think it’s pretty cool! Of course, I still need to start the first book 🙂

    • Oh yes, I highly recommend that you do – for a start Tchaikovsky very effectively sets out the premise and covers all the bases within his story. I enjoyed the fact that this is a multi-author project, too – given the talent of the two authors so far:)

  3. This does sound good, Sarah! I love it when I stumble across a book in a series I want to continue–and then to be approved for it! I hope you enjoy this one!
