WoW: Thick as Thieves

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Kamet, a secretary and slave to his Mede master, has the ambition and the means to become one of the most powerful people in the Empire. But with a whispered warning the future he envisioned is wrenched away, and he is forced onto a very different path. Set in the world of the Queen’s Thief, this epic adventure sees an ordinary hero take on an extraordinary mission. 

I have just enjoying hugging this news to my heart since it was released a couple weeks ago. I waited for six and a half years for news of this book and in one week we got a title, cover, release date, and synopsis. I needed time to recover and ruminate.

I can not tell you how excited I am for this book or how much this series as a whole means to me. (Though if you scroll through old posts, you will see how often it gets mentioned.) When the synopsis came out, it was pretty much the best thing I could have hoped for. I've wanted a book about Kamet since he was introduced in the second book.

The only slight disappointment I have is with the cover. I LOVED the 2005 repackaged covers. They are the covers of my heart, and I would really love to have a matching set. There is a petition here to request a limited print run with a cover that matches the previous ones. If you are a fan and are interested, please sign.

I'm buying the book no matter what though because this is my favorite series with my two favorite books of all time in it. And the cover doesn't alter the amazing contents.

Thick as Thieves has a release day of May 16, 2017.

Signed the petition! I love those covers and am really not keen on the new ones. (Loved the wording of the petition: nicely done!)

Can't wait until May.

I didn't write the petition (a friend did), but I had some input so thanks. :)

I can't wait for May either!!!
