Waiting on Wednesday (143)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm super excited for Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian! I read Ash Princess earlier this year as an ARC and I absolutely loved it! It ended with a major cliffhanger, and I really want to know what happens next. I ship Theo and Søren, and I really hope they are able to grow closer together in this book. I also hope that Theo gets to utterly destroy the Kaiser. He is an awful man that killed her mother and made her kill her own father and I will not stand for him to continue being in existence. I have mega grabby hands for this book, and I will likely stroke the cover repeatedly when I get it.


The Kaiser murdered Theodosia's mother, the Fire Queen, when Theo was only six. He took Theo's country and kept her prisoner, crowning her Ash Princess--a pet to toy with and humiliate for ten long years. That era has ended. The Kaiser thought his prisoner weak and defenseless. He didn't realize that a sharp mind is the deadliest weapon.

Theo no longer wears a crown of ashes. She has taken back her rightful title, and a hostage--Prinz Soren. But her people remain enslaved under the Kaiser's rule, and now she is thousands of miles away from them and her throne.

To get them back, she will need an army. Only, securing an army means she must trust her aunt, the dreaded pirate Dragonsbane. And according to Dragonsbane, an army can only be produced if Theo takes a husband. Something an Astrean Queen has never done.

Theo knows that freedom comes at a price, but she is determined to find a way to save her country without losing herself.

Release: February 5, 2019
