Waiting on Wednesday: A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

A Book of Spirits and Thieves
(Spirits and Thieves #1)
Publication Date: June 23, 2015
Hardcover, Razorbill
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes takes readers into exhilarating new high-fantasy territory with A BOOK OF SPIRITS AND THIEVES. Written in alternating perspectives that shift between modern-day Toronto and the ancient kingdoms of Mytica, Rhodes masterfully weaves the dark, magical world of her Falling Kingdoms series into an epic contemporary saga that will leave you breathless.

Modern-day Toronto: A heavy leather-bound book written in an unrecognizable language is delivered to the Speckled Muse, the antique bookshop owned by Crystal and Becca Hatcher’s mother. When Becca opens it, she’s sent into a coma, leaving Crys behind to uncover a series of terrifying secrets.

Ancient Mytica: A merciless goddess hunts for the elusive treasure that will make her ruler not only of Mytica, but of all the unseen worlds that lay beyond it.

Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson finally has the chance to prove himself when the mysterious leader of a powerful secret society invites him into his fold.

Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso has always been different, but never remarkable. Everything changes the day he meets a pretty, unfamiliar girl from a faraway land, only to realize that he’s the only one who can see her.

Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart.

My Thoughts

I’m not sure how I feel about this to be honest. I’ve only read the first book in the Falling Kingdoms series and I wasn’t OMG excited about it, so I don’t know if a spin-off series that’s so different is really going to capture my attention. The cover is gorgeous though. What do you think?

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I like the idea of the perspectives alternating between modern day and ancient fantasy. I haven't read Falling Kingdom series yet, but I've always wanted to. I wonder if you need to read those to know what's going on in this series. The cover is pretty though. Here's my WoW

  2. I do love the cover, but I hate when a cover pulls me in but I have reservations about the description or author. Hope you enjoy it though.
