Waiting on Wednesday (#310): The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen

"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:

The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
Book One of The Merciful Crow series
Publisher: Henry Holt (BYR)
Publication Date: July 30, 2019

Summary (from Goodreads):

A future chieftain

Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.

A fugitive prince

When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses—and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.

A too-cunning bodyguard

Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?

The cover of this book was revealed recently, and it is AWESOME! I am looking forward to reading the book. Hoping for no love triangle though!
