Waiting on Wednesday (#243): Hero at the Fall 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:


Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton
Book Three of the Rebel of the Sands series
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: March 6, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears!

When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.




Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

That is all. 

(FYI, yes, this is the UK cover! The USA cover has not been revealed yet. This is not the USA cover! I do love it though.)

(Also, anyone wanna see my Rebel collection???)

  4. I looove that the UK kept the original covers! They were sooo pretty! I will definitely be ordering that one! So weird that they went back and made an ARC of the new paperback cover for Rebel of the Sands. Weird that they did it even when there was the new hardcover look! I personally liked the first cover art concept! So glad I managed to get an ARC of that one! Kudos to the awesome collection!

    Have a GREAT day!
