Can’t Wait Wednesday| A Broken Blade – Melissa Blair

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.

My body is made of scars,
some were done to me,
but most I did to myself.

Keera is a killer. As the King’s Blade, she is the most talented spy in the kingdom. And the king’s favored assassin. When a mysterious figure moves against the Crown, Keera is called upon to hunt down the so-called Shadow.

She tracks her target into the magical lands of the Fae, but Faeland is not what it seems…and neither is the Shadow. Keera is shocked by what she learns, and can’t help but wonder who her enemy truly is: the King that destroyed her people or the Shadow that threatens the peace?

As she searches for answers, Keera is haunted by a promise she made long ago, one that will test her in every way. To keep her word, Keera must not only save herself, but an entire kingdom.


So A Broken Blade was actually a big TikTok hype when everyone was trying to figure out who the author was. Now that the author is known, Melissa Blair’s novel is being traditionally published by Union Square Co. in August. I was lucky to receive and e-copy and I’m excited to pick this one up.

This book is giving me some Throne of Glass vibes, so I’m hoping it’s not too alike. But I am a fan of books with royalty, fae, spies, and a brand new fantasy world to learn about. I’ll definitely be reading this one soon, so keep an eye out for my review in the near future!


What books releasing soon have recently been on your radar that you’re really excited about? Let me know in the comments! I’m always looking for some new recommendations!
