Waiting on Wednesday

Sebastian De Castell rose up to be one of my all-time favourite writers with the brilliant, swashbuckling Greatcoats series. So when I read that there's a new book in this same world coming out, I was beyond excited! 

Here's the details that we know : Set in the same world of Tristia, the new series is called Court of Shadows, first part of which is called Play of Shadows - and this happens few months after the end of Tyrant's Throne.  


It's a gorgeous cover - and Fantasy Book Critic has a fabulous interview with the author himself, that details out how this cover came into being.  And Sebastian has put out the first chapter - that will definitely set your pulse racing. 

IF YOU COULD SEE INTO THE PAST, WOULD YOU REVEAL THE TRUTHS THAT WOULD SHAKE YOUR SOCIETY TO THE CORE?

When the grandson of two famous sword-wielding Greatcoats flees a duel to hide out in a theatre, he unwittingly becomes a conduit for the spirit of a legendary Archduke portrayed as a villain on the stage. But as Damelas begins to learn the truth of what happened in the past, his life in the present becomes more and more dangerous, and soon he’ll have to find a way to fight back against those who would kill to keep the country’s darkest secrets buried.

Swordplay, magic, intrigue and friendships stronger than iron: the first volume in the new swashbuckling fantasy series by the bestselling author of The Greatcoats.
