Waiting on Wednesday: Traitor to the Throne

Waiting on Wednesday is created by Breaking the Spine
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 
I loved Rebel of the Sands (review here) and I've been anticipating this one for a while. However... the cover change makes me sad. While I do love this new cover, and replacement for the original of Rebel cover (link here; yes I know the link doesn't go to the American version but that's the new cover regardless) I miss the stylized art of the original covers. And, now they won't match :(

Traitor to the Throne is released March 17th, 2017 and you can preorder the book here


  1. Hmm even though the old cover is more artistic, the new cover makes me want to read it more. This type of cover is not original but it's definitely effective

    1. I like that these draw me in more, but I still really loved the old covers. I wish they had picked one or the other and stuck with it.

  2. This cover is okay, but it seems pretty generic fantasy to me. I love the original Rebel cover, and I like the UK cover for this one better. Either way, I'm still really excited about this book.

    1. Yeah generic is a good word for the new cover. It's not bad but I don't think it will stand out the same way. It's going to be a great book!
