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 – The Trials of Koli – Book 2 of the Rampart trilogy by Carey – release date 17th September
#science fiction #post apocalyptic #troubled young hero
BLURB: Beyond the walls of Koli’s small village lies a fearsome landscape filled with choker trees, vicious beasts and shunned men. As an exile, Koli’s been forced to journey out into this mysterious, hostile world. But he heard a story, once. A story about lost London, and the mysterious tech of the Old Times that may still be there. If Koli can find it, there may still be a way for him to redeem himself – by saving what’s left of humankind.
I loved the first book in this series – see my review of The Book of Koli – so I’m really excited by the sequel coming out so soon after the first book. And I was delighted to get hold of an arc – yippee! Carey is very good at writing shattered societies – I was blown away by his enthralling The Girl with All the Gifts – see my review.
I’m looking forward to reading The Book of Koli! Fingers crossed the rest of the series is just as good! 😀
I know! That’s always the issue when the first book starts with such a bang – that maybe the second book will be a bit of a letdown. That said, this is Carey…
I hope you enjoy this one! From your review of the first one, it certainly sounds like a different POV on a dystopian future.
Oh, the first book was a complete blast – SO much fun and adventure. I loved Koli’s voice AND his little friend…
I haven’t read anything by this author, but I really like the cover. I’ll have to read your review of the first book, Sarah.
Thank you for take the time to read the review of The Trials of Koli, Jan:)). If you’re looking for a dystopian sci fi adventure with a difference, I highly recommend this one.
I’m so excited for this, I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet! Its definitely coming up on the pile soon😁
I know! I did a happy dance around the lounge when I was approved to read this one:))
The premise sounds really interesting, Sarah. I hadn’t heard of the series before, but take your review to heart. Have fun with the read. I’m looking forward to your review. 🙂
It is a fascinating premise – and for a post-apocalyptic read, it is really upbeat, which I enjoyed.
I don’t think this is a series I plan on picking up but I know a lot of people seem to be enjoying it. Hope you love it!
Thank you, Barb:)). Have a lovely reading week!
I want to read this series but haven’t read the first one yet.
I highly recommend the first one, Anne – so if you get a chance to read it, I think you’d enjoy it.
It sounds like a great story. I hope you will enjoy it. Happy reading!
The first book was a fabulous read, Vi – so I’m really looking forward to this one:))
Oh, this sounds good and it’s my first encounter. Now I need to investigate book one!
It’s a really interesting read – and far less bleak in tone than The Girl With All the Gifts…
I hope you’ll love it! I will wait for reviews for this one before deciding whether to continue the series 🙂
Yes – I recall that this wasn’t one that grabbed you, was it? I know there are a number of series I’ve decided I don’t want to take further than the first one…
It sounds good. Gonna check out the first book. Hope you enjoy it! And thanks for checking out my WoW.
You’re welcome, Laura:). I’m really looking forward to this one.
I hope you love it, I’m of a similar mind to Mogsy, I enjoyed the first but it didn’t wow me quite as much as the author’s other books so I’ve decided to wait and see.
I’m very excited at the prospect of starting this one – it’s by far my favourite read of his to date – though I do love his writing.
