Waiting on Wednesday (203)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton (3/7/17):

Description on Goodreads:
The sizzling, un-put-downable sequel to the bestselling Rebel of the Sands!

Mere months ago, gunslinger Amani al'Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she's fighting to liberate the entire desert nation of Miraji from a bloodthirsty sultan who slew his own father to capture the throne.

When Amani finds herself thrust into the epicenter of the regime—the Sultan's palace—she's determined to bring the tyrant down. Desperate to uncover the Sultan's secrets by spying on his court, she tries to forget that Jin disappeared just as she was getting closest to him, and that she's a prisoner of the enemy. But the longer she remains, the more she questions whether the Sultan is really the villain she's been told he is, and who’s the real traitor to her sun-bleached, magic-filled homeland.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Miraji, about the rebellion, about djinni and Jin and the Blue-Eyed Bandit. In Traitor to the Throne, the only certainty is that everything will change.
Why I’m Waiting:
Yay! I’m so excited to know the sequel is coming soon! I adored the first book in this series. I love fantasy books with desert settings. And the first one was such a good fantasy. I have to admit that I will need to brush up on that first one again though before starting the sequel, because the names don’t sound familiar to me any more. I just know that I loved it. And the cover is so pretty. I cannot wait.
What are you waiting on this week?
