*Waiting on a Wednesday is a weekly feature in which I spotlight upcoming releases that I can’t wait to read!
This week, I’m waiting on To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo.
Most of the future-release books on my TBR aren’t coming out until the end of the year, but luckily I don’t have to wait too long for this one! This is probably one of my biggest anticipated releases of the year (that isn’t a sequel).
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

IT SOUNDS AMAZING.
I’m a sucker for retellings, and this is supposedly a retelling of The Little Mermaid with a mix of other folklore as well! Anyone who knows me knows I love mermaids (I basically am one) and antiheroes, so this book may have been written for me. We’ll see.
To Kill a Kingdom will be available on March 6th.
