Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book releases we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood
Release Date: 8th December 2015
“Three royal houses ruling three interplanetary systems are on the brink of collapse, and they must either ally together or tear each other apart in order for their people to survive.
Asa is the youngest daughter of the house of Fane, which has been fighting a devastating food and energy crisis for far too long. She thinks she can save her family’s livelihood by posing as her oldest sister in an arranged marriage with Eagle, the heir to the throne of the house of Westlet. The appearance of her mother, a traitor who defected to the house of Galton, adds fuel to the fire, while Asa also tries to save her sister Wren’s life . . . possibly from the hands of their own father.
But as Asa and Eagle forge a genuine bond, will secrets from the past and the urgent needs of their people in the present keep them divided?
Author Tessa Elwood’s debut series is an epic romance at heart, set against a mine field of political machinations, space adventure, and deep-seeded family loyalties.”
I haven’t read that many Sci-Fi novels and there is something about this one that is making me super excited. I want to learn more about these three ruling houses and the people that live within each of them. I also want to know why Asa’s mother defected to another house and if there are any lasting consequences of this.
What are your picks for this week?
Thanks for reading,
