I Can’t Wait for… Gifting Fire by Alina Boyden

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for this week is immediately my most-anticipated read of the new year, a sequel to one of my favorite reads of this year, featuring a proud hijra warrior princess heroine …

The battle has been won, but the war is just beginning.

Although at long last Razia Khan has found peace with herself and love with her prince, Arjun, her trials are far from over. In order to save her prince and his city from certain destruction, Razia made a deal with the devil–her father, the Sultan of Nizam. Now the bill has come due.

Razia must secure the province of Zindh, a land surrounded by enemies, and loyal to a rebel queen who has survived her father’s purge.  But when her old tormentor Prince Karim invades her new home and forces her into a marriage alliance, Razia finds herself trapped in the women’s quarters of a foreign palace, with her beloved Prince Arjun exiled from her side.  

Now, in order to free herself, and her province, from Karim’s clutches, she must call upon all of her training as a royal princess, a cunning courtesan, and a daring thief to summon new allies and old friends for a battle that will decide her fate, and the fate of an empire.

    1. It sounds bigger, more epic . . . but just as good. I’ve already started begging for a copy – my publicist contact promised me the Netgalley widget as soon as it’s available. 🙂


  1. I remember hearing about Stealing Thunder and thinking it might be something I would like. I guess I’d better get on that one if the sequel is coming out! I hope you enjoy this one when you read it! Take care.
