Can’t-Wait​ Wednesday: The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.

On Abeth the vastness of the ice holds no room for individuals. Survival together is barely possible. No one survives alone.

To resist the cold, to endure the months of night when even the air itself begins to freeze, requires a special breed. Variation is dangerous, difference is fatal. And Yaz is not the same.

Yaz is torn from the only life she’s ever known, away from her family, from the boy she thought she would spend her days with, and has to carve out a new path for herself in a world whose existence she never suspected. A world full of difference and mystery and danger.

Yaz learns that Abeth is older and stranger than she had ever imagined. She learns that her weaknesses are another kind of strength. And she learns to challenge the cruel arithmetic of survival that has always governed her people.

Only when it’s darkest can you see the stars.

Why I Can’t Wait:

I adored Mark Lawrence’s Book of the Ancestor and this new series is set in the same world. I completely trust in his fantastic storytelling ability and I’m sure I’ll end up loving Yaz just as much as I love Nona.

Release Date: 30 April 2020
