Waiting on Wednesday (#191): Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton


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


This week, I'm featuring:


Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
Book Two of the Rebel of the Sands series
Publisher: Viking
Publication Date: March 7, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.




Who isn't waiting for this book? I can't wait! It's really cheap on Amazon right now. =)

  1. That blurb just gave me goosebumps. What if everything we were told in the first book was wrong? That would be evil.

    My WOW

  4. I AM SCARED when it comes to this book. The whole traitor thing especially. I hope it doesn't turn out that Jin is a traitor because that will make me VERY SAD.

    1. Yaaasss, no love triangle is good! Of course, there are other ways the author can ruin the romance, but hopefully she doesn't ruin it. ;D Thank you! You too, Carina. ^_^
