Waiting on Wednesday – The Queens of Innis Lear


Hello and a very good morning to you all! I hope you’re all having a fantastic week. It’s time again for another Waiting on Wednesday.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. A similar meme, Can’t-Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings. If you’d like to participate in either one, don’t forget to link back to these lovely ladies and add your links in their posts.


My pick for this week’s “can’t wait to read” is

The Queens of Innis Lear

Tessa Gratton



Expected publication: March 27, 2018 Tor Books

Hardcover 576 Pages

Genre(s): Young Adult, Retellings, Fantasy


A kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.

The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.

The king’s three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm’s only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.

Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.

I’ve missed reading fantasy and retellings. Lately, I’ve just been in the mood to read contemporary and romances, but I’m hoping I’ll soon get in the mood for Sci-fi, Fantasy, Retellings, and Adventure books.

The Queens of Innis Lear sounds incredibly fascinating and so thrilling. Just read the synopsis and tell me if you aren’t curious…That first line, A kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.” already got me! I wonder if this book is on Netgalley? Not that I need anymore books to add, but this book is seriously calling to me.

  1. It is actually on NetGalley 🙂 They had a downloadable excerpt before – and it felt like the entire book – maybe it was! Based on my first impression, it sounded really good (I read the first couple of pages!)

  2. Wild magic, a poison ritual, three daughters- sounds great. I’ve seen this one before but had not read the synopsis or anything. May have to add this one for sure!
