There’s a book that’s coming out in a couple of weeks that I’m very excited for, so I thought I’d participate in another Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings (and was previously hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where it was known as Waiting on Wednesday) to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. They’re usually books that have not yet been released.
This week’s book is:
The Never Heir by Courtney Millecam!
It’s a YA book coming out that is somewhat based on Peter Pan, as well as the start of a new series, each centering on an old story in some way. I love retellings and books based on older tales, so this novel seems right up my alley.
SERIES: The Otherworlds (Book #1)
LENGTH: 350 pages
GENRES: Fantasy, YA, Fiction
PUBLISHER: Laurel Ink Press
RELEASE DATE: 16 May 2023
Charlie ‘Tootles’ Tulane risked everything to break the spell binding the lost boys to Pan and escape Neverland. Now seventeen and living in 1923 London, Charlie’s freedom from the land of Faerie has never felt better. But even the noblest of actions have consequences. Neverland demands a leader, and without one, chaos spills into the mortal world.
Spending his nights as an amateur boxer, Charlie meets the ‘Bright Young Things’ of London’s upper class. Part of that group is Evie, a girl whose ravings about mermaids abducting her sister got her sent to an asylum. Now that she’s back among polite society, Evie’s under strict orders from her mother to avoid any further scandal and to attract a suitable match. But that proves difficult when Evie’s friend and confidant from Faerie turns demanding and sinister, forcing her into a deal she can’t refuse: In exchange for locating Pan’s lost relics of power, the Fae will return the one thing Evie wants most.
When Charlie learns his past betrayals set off a chain reaction resulting in the abduction of Evie’s sister, the two must return to the place of Charlie’s nightmares in an attempt to set things right. But this time, the price for rectitude might prove too steep for either one of them to pay.
Thank you so much for reading, and have an awesome day/night!
See ya ~Mar
