Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on THE SMOKE THIEVES by Sally Green


“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 The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green.  The cover on this book is what first grabbed my attention, but then what really hooked me was the blurb “Perfect for Game of Thrones fans.”  That’s all I needed to see:  sign me up!



Publication Date:   May 1, 2018



From Goodreads:

The beginning to an epic medieval fantasy trilogy, perfect for Game of Thrones fans.

A shrewd princess whose father is plotting against her. A brave soldier turned traitor. A loyal servant on a quest to avenge his family. A streetwise demon smoke hunter in desperate need of money. A charming thief with no clue about his true identity. Their lives would never intersect, until a war between kingdoms bubbles up, and the dangerous truth about demon smoke intertwines all their fates. Welcome to The Smoke Thieves, a tangled web of political intrigue, shifting alliances, and forbidden love, in a world where sometimes no amount of magic can keep you safe.

    Happy New Year, Suzanne! I hope you and your family had a good holiday! And, what an interesting start to the year with this one! I am loving how the cover reflects the blurb, and the potential of political intrigue makes this all sound sooo delicious!

    I stumbled upon this last week and thought it looked fascinating. I’m always down for a book about princesses, thieves, and forbidden love. Great pick, Suzanne!

    I don’t have any that I’m currently waiting on this week in particular – but in general, I’ll be waiting for the seventh Throne of Glass book. Since I just finished the sixth – it’s the only thing on my mind!

    I like the sound of this, but I wasn’t the biggest fan of Sally’s Green’s prior series. In fact, I DNF’d the first book (Half Bad) twice. I’ll be keeping an eye of the reviews though; maybe this new series will be great for me! I hope you love Suzanne.

    Here is my WoW for the week!

    I’m not a huge fan of fantasy, and I’ve never watched or read Game of Thrones but I’ll be curious to see what people think of this one! Thanks for sharing.
