We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by 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 Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Darkness never works alone...
Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who--and what--he’s become.
As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.
In her dramatic follow-up to Wicked Saints, the first book in her Something Dark and Holy trilogy, Emily A. Duncan paints a Gothic, icy world where shadows whisper, and no one is who they seem, with a shocking ending that will leave you breathless.
Ruthless Gods (Something Dark and Holy, #2) by Emily A. Duncan

I adored Wicked Saints last year, it even made it to the very top of my favorite 2019 releases! So of course I have been looking forward to the sequel since the very moment I closed Wicked Saints. The first book ended with quite the bang so I’m hoping Ruthless Gods will start exciting. My expectations are pretty high for this one!
I have to admit, I already have an eARC for this one. Since this summer actually! But I haven’t picked it up yet. I do plan on reading it before the release date, which is April 7th. It will probably be a February or March read for me. Wicked Saints was a pretty dark fantasy and that vibe fits perfectly with the weather these months, so I’m sure I’ll be in the right mood for it.
Have you read Wicked Saints? Did you love it? And are you looking forward to Ruthless Gods as much as I am?
