I Can't Wait for... Between Ink and Shadows by Melissa Wright (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW #yalit #fantasy

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.

Goodness! This is going up so late!! I've had sick kids and late nights and just didn't get this published. My apologies!

I've been a fan of this author for some time now. I just have great respect for not only her writing, but the very talented artist she is as well. Her books are always exciting and I always love her characters. Her newest series launches in December and I'm thrilled to read it after just getting teasers for months! It's my pick this week...

Between Ink and Shadows
(Between Ink and Shadows #1)
By Melissa Wright
YA Fantasy
Paperback & ebook
December 1, 2020


She’ll win back her freedom, even if she has to steal it.

Nimona Weston has a debt to pay. Her father’s dealings with the dark society known as the Trust cost Nim her freedom. There’s one way out of the contract on her life and that’s to bide her time and pay the tithes. But when the Trust assigns Nim to a task in the king’s own castle, her freedom is not the only thing she’ll risk.

Warrick Spenser has a secret. As king’s seneschal, he should be the last soul in Inara to risk association with dark magic, but long-hidden ties to the Trust are harder to shed than simply cutting the threads. When the Trust sends a thief to his rooms, Warrick thinks he’s finally found a way to be rid of them for good. But Nimona Weston is hiding secrets of her own.

Magical contracts, blood-debt accountants, and a deadly game. A dark and twisty fantasy that pits magic against kings, perfect for fans of Sorcery of Thorns and Serpent & Dove.
