Can’t-Wait Wednesday – 22nd July, 2020 #Brainfluffbookblog #CWC #WOW


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 – Unconquerable Sun – Book 1 of The Sun Chronicles by Kate Elliott – release date 1st October, 2020

#science fiction #space opera #gender-swapped Alexander the Great retelling

BLURB: Princess Sun has finally come of age.
Growing up in the shadow of her mother, Eirene, has been no easy task. The legendary queen-marshal did what everyone thought impossible: expel the invaders and build Chaonia into a magnificent republic, one to be respected—and feared. But the cutthroat ambassador corps and conniving noble houses have never ceased to scheme—and they have plans that need Sun to be removed as heir, or better yet, dead. To survive, the princess must rely on her wits and companions: her biggest rival, her secret lover, and a dangerous prisoner of war.

Take the brilliance and cunning courage of Princess Leia—add in a dazzling futuristic setting where pop culture and propaganda are one and the same—and hold on tight:

This is the space opera you’ve been waiting for.

The great Kate Elliott writing space opera! AND retelling the amazing story of Alexander the Great, but set in space – with a heroine… *bouncing on my seat with excitement* AND I’ve been approved for a Netgalley arc!!

Annddd… I need to calm down a bit. Picking up a book with toooo much anticipation is a sure-fire way for massive disappointment. But – that will be something of a struggle regarding this one! Fingers crossed that it’s as awesome a read as I’m hoping for.

    • Yes! I loved the Spiritwalker trilogy, too – and her Crown of Stars epic fantasy, which I think is shamefully underrated. So I’m really excited about this one!!!

    • Thank you, Ashley – I hope that it lives up to my expectations. The reason I’m quite so excited is that I know she’s an excellent writer and I’ve loved her previous work:))

  1. Ohhhhh, a gender flipped Alexander the Great??? And if that wasn’t t
    Enough — the mention of Leia made me squeal out loud! Great pick!
