Can’t Wait Wednesday – ONCE & FUTURE by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy


“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 at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is ONCE & FUTURE by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy.  Ever since I was a kid, I was always captivated by the Legend of King Arthur, and this upcoming release is not only a King Arthur retelling, but the King Arthur character is also a girl!  Enough said, I need this book in my life!


ONCE & FUTURE by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Publication Date: March 5, 2019


From Goodreads

Some legends never die – they are reborn. Once & Future is King Arthur as you’ve never imagined!

I’ve been chased my whole life. As an illegal immigrant in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I’ve always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur.

Now I’m done hiding.

My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.

When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind.  No pressure.

    Ha! You had me at “I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.” This book must have sarcasm, banter and magic so I would be all in!!!!

    Oh wow, this sounds absolutely incredible! I’m a big fan of retellings. Since reading The Conquerors Saga by Kierstan White, I’ve been looking for another gender swapped retelling. Teenage Merlin? Count me in! Thanks so much for sharing Suzanne, I wouldn’t have probably discovered this one otherwise ♡♡♡

      You’re welcome. And yes, this meme is a great one for adding new books to your TBR. Mine has actually gotten out of control from hearing about so many great upcoming releases through the meme, lol.
