Waiting on Wednesday (147)

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

I forgot to actually post this on Wednesday, but I'm doing it now! Everything's been a little hectic with the holidays.

This week I'm excited for Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury! From the moment I heard about this, I've wanted to read it! I've enjoyed some of Jessica's previous books, including Kalahari and Vitro. While those are both contemporary sci-fi books, I have no doubt that Last of Her Name will also be amazing. I currently have the ARC hanging out in my room, and I plan on digging into it soon. I've really enjoyed books similar to this, such as Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis, so I expect I'll like this as well.


Sixteen years ago, rebellion swept the galaxy known as the Belt of Jewels. Every member of the royal family was murdered--down to their youngest child, Princess Anya--and the Union government rose in its place. But Stacia doesn't think much about politics. She spends her days half-wild, rambling her father's vineyard with her closest friends, Clio and Pol.

That all changes the day a Union ship appears in town, carrying the leader of the Belt himself, the Direktor Eminent. The Direktor claims that Princess Anya is alive, and that Stacia's sleepy village is a den of empire loyalists, intent on hiding her. When Stacia is identified as the lost princess, her provincial home explodes into a nightmare.

Pol smuggles her away to a hidden escape ship in the chaos, leaving Clio in the hands of the Union. With everything she knows threading away into stars, Stacia sets her heart on a single mission. She will find and rescue Clio, even with the whole galaxy on her trail.

Release: February 26, 2019
