Waiting on Wednesday (219)

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 Falling Star by Melissa Landers (2/7/2017):

Description from Goodreads:
When Princess Cassia Rose fled her home world of Eturia to escape an arranged marriage, she had no idea her sudden departure would spark a war. Now after two years hiding as a ship hand, she is finally returning to her beloved home, but not in the way she imagined. Shackled by bounty hunters, she is violently dragged back to account for her crimes. Her only solace is that the Banshee crew managed to evade capture, including Kane Arric, her best friend...with occasional benefits.

Meanwhile, Kane and the rest of the crew of the Banshee plan a desperate rescue mission. But when they arrive on Eturia, Cassia isn't exactly in need of heroics—she's claimed her birthright as Eturia's queen, but has inherited a war-torn planet simmering with rebellion. Cassia must make alliances, and Kane, the bastard son of a merchant, isn't a choice that will earn her any friends. Kane knows he will never find someone to replace Cassia—and is certain she returns his feelings—but how can he throw away his own promising future waiting on a queen?

When the outer realm is threatened by the dangerous Zhang mafia, Cassia, Kane and the rest of the Banshee crew uncover a horrifying conspiracy that endangers the entire universe. In the face of unspeakable evil, Cassia must confront her own family's complicated legacy on Eturia and decide once and for all who her real family is.
Why I’m Waiting:
I only just recently finished Starflight and loved it. I actually didn’t know there was going to be a sequel, so I’m even more excited for this; I read book 1 just in time! I loved the humor and the similarities to Cowboy Bebop. I also loved the adventure, the pirates, and the romance…and I’m hoping for more in book 2. Bring on the good sci-fi!
What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Huh, I didn't know Starflight was getting a sequel either - not that I've read it yet. But I could definitely see myself loving it like you did. Need more good sci fi in my life!
