I Can't Wait for... These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday)

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, 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. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

This is the second week using the new linky from InLinkz. Last week I didn't click the option for captions until later on. Everyone should be able to put their "name @ blog name" and/or the book they're featuring. Let me know in comments if you have any issues or if you vote for this new version or going back to the old version. Also, there were three of you last week who didn't verify your email address with InLinkz and the linky won't show your link unless you do that, so please check. I plan to email those who come across as unverified this week so that you know.

This new book, the start of a new fantasy series, sounds freaking awesome! It looks like there will be plenty of religious and political intrigue, some magic, and a fierce heroine. It's my pick this week...

These Rebel Waves
(Stream Raiders #1)
By Sara Raasch
YA Fantasy
Hardcover & ebook, 320 Pages
August 7th 2018 by Balzer + Bray


Adeluna is a soldier. Five years ago, she helped the magic-rich island of Grace Loray overthrow its oppressor, Argrid, a country ruled by religion. But adjusting to postwar life has not been easy. When an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks with Grace Loray’s new Council, Argrid demands brutal justice—but Lu suspects something more dangerous is at work.

Devereux is a pirate. As one of the outlaws called stream raiders who run rampant on Grace Loray, he pirates the island’s magic plants and sells them on the black market. But after Argrid accuses raiders of the diplomat’s abduction, Vex becomes a target. An expert navigator, he agrees to help Lu find the Argridian—but the truth they uncover could be deadlier than any war.

Benat is a heretic. The crown prince of Argrid, he harbors a secret obsession with Grace Loray’s forbidden magic. When Ben’s father, the king, gives him the shocking task of reversing Argrid’s fear of magic, Ben has to decide if one prince can change a devout country—or if he’s building his own pyre.

As conspiracies arise, Lu, Vex, and Ben will have to decide who they really are . . . and what they are willing to become for peace.
