Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE LADY ROGUE by Jenn Bennett


“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 THE LADY ROGUE by Jenn Bennett.  I’m a huge fan of Jenn Bennett’s contemporary novels but, even though I’m also a big fantasy reader, I’ve yet to try one of her fantasy novels.  I’m excited to remedy that with her upcoming release.  I love the The Last Magician meets A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue comparison and that it had a Vlad the Impaler connection as well.  


THE LADY ROGUE by Jenn Bennett

Publication Date:  September 3, 2019


From Goodreads:

The Last Magician meets A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue in this thrilling tale filled with magic and set in the mysterious Carpathian Mountains where a girl must hunt down Vlad the Impaler’s cursed ring in order to save her father.

Some legends never die…

Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé—and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life—Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul.

Until Huck arrives from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler—more widely known as Dracula—and that it just might be the key to finding him.

Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths—including murder—to possess it.

    I am absolutely dying for this one as well! I love Jenn Bennett, she’s one of the few authors that I will buy anything she writes and know that I’ll love it. I have her adult paranormal series but I haven’t read that one yet so super keen on seeing how she tackles fantasy. Such a brilliant choice Suzanne!

    You know I love Bennett, but I am actually hanging back on this one, because it is not in my genre of choice. I feel like I will eventually read it though, because – Bennett!
