Can’t Wait Wednesday – Daughters of the Storm by Kim Wilkins
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is DAUGHTERS OF THE STORM by Kim Wilkins. I’m intrigued by this story because of the five very different sisters. I’m very curious to see how these daughters come together to try to save their father when his life is endangered and to fight their teacherous stepbrother. Plus, they’re on a quest to find a powerful witch. It sounds very exciting!
DAUGHTERS OF THE STORM by Kim Wilkins
Publication Date: March 16, 2018
Five very different sisters team up against their stepbrother to save their kingdom in this Norse-flavored fantasy epic–the start of a new series in the tradition of Naomi Novik, Peter V. Brett, and Robin Hobb.
FIVE ROYAL SISTERS. ONE CROWN.
They are the daughters of a king. Though they share the same royal blood, they could not be more different. Bluebell is a proud warrior, stronger than any man and with an ironclad heart to match. Rose’s heart is all too passionate: She is the queen of a neighboring kingdom, who is risking everything for a forbidden love. The twins: vain Ivy, who lives for admiration, and zealous Willow, who lives for the gods. And Ash, who is discovering a dangerous talent for magic that might be a gift–or a curse.
But when their father is stricken by a mysterious ailment, they must come together on a desperate journey to save him and prevent their treacherous stepbrother from seizing the throne. Their mission: find the powerful witch who can cure the king. But to succeed on their quest, they must overcome their differences, and hope that the secrets they hide from one another and the world are never brought to light. Because if this royal family breaks, it could destroy the kingdom.

This is the first I am hearing about this book, and it sounds ah-mazing! I love sibling stories, and am a fan of Norse mythology.
Same. And I just got approved for an ARC so now I’m even more excited to read it!
This sounds like a good fantasy. I like the sound of the different characters with their different abilities.
Me too. I really hope it’s as good as it sounds 🙂
I adore stories with and about sisters! 🙂 Love the cover.
Yes, the cover is amazing!
I love the sound of this one, and that cover is awesome!! I love that it’s siblings having to work together, instead of a love interest. Great pick!
Same here. Reading about the sibling relationships was what really drew me in.
I hadn’t heard of this, it sounds great! I’m always exciting for sibling/family-oriented fantasies, so I’ll definitely be adding this one to my TBR. Great pick! 🙂

Oh, a Norse-flavored fantasy epic? Sounds so good already, nice pick!
