Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Lightbringer by Claire Legrand
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
In this epic finale to the Empirium Trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claire Legrand, two queens, separated by a thousand years must face their ultimate destinies.
Queen Rielle, pushed away from everything she loves, turns to Corien and his promises of glory. Meanwhile, whispers from the empirium slowly drive her mad, urging her to open the Gate. Separated from Audric and Ludivine, she embraces the role of Blood Queen and her place by Corien’s side, determined to become the monster the world believes her to be.
In the future, Eliana arrives in the Empire’s capital as a broken shell of herself. Betrayed and abandoned, she fights to keep her power at bay―and away from Corien, who will stop at nothing to travel back in time to Rielle, even if that means destroying her daughter.
But when the mysterious Prophet reveals themselves at last, everything changes, giving Rielle and Eliana a second chance for salvation―or the destruction their world has been dreading.
Why I Can’t Wait:
I am just so excited about this book; it’s probably my most anticipated read of the year. I absolutely adored Furyborn and Kingsbane and that brutal cliffhanger has me dying to find out what happens next. If you want a well-written YA fantasy series with complex female main characters then definitely pick these up ASAP.
