I Can't Wait for... Of Sword and Shadow by A. L. Sowards (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW @covenant_comm

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.

Tag me on your CWW posts on Twitter (@wishfulendings) and I'll like and retweet!

I need to apologize! Somehow this was still in drafts and didn't publish last night. Sorry guys!!

I've been a fan of this author since I read The Rules in Rome years ago. She's always written historical war novels, so she's definitely switching genres a bit with her newest, but she's an excellent writer and I have high expectations for this one. It's my pick this week...

Of Sword and Shadow
By A. L. Sowards
Christian Historical Fantasy
Paperback, Audio CD & ebook, 251 Pages
February 2021 by Covenant Communications


Greece, 1379

She is known by many names, none of them her own. In truth, she is an unnamed slave, nothing more than a weapon in the hands of her owner in his attempts to provoke political mayhem. When she encounters a handsome young man while on an assignment, she thinks little of him—until he attempts to take what she has stolen. But in her line of work, failure is not an option.

Gillen is intrigued by the mysterious woman who thwarts his mission. But when his path crosses hers again, his intrigue turns to gratitude as the thief he comes to call Eudocia saves his life. The two form a bond of friendship and join forces to wrest control from a group of ruthless rulers. But as their camaraderie blossoms into something more, Gillen and Eudocia must fight for love even as they wage war for a better future.
