Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m looking forward to Invictus by Ryan Graudin. I down for anything written by Graudin! The Wolf by Wolf duology was one of my favourites and it seriously messed with my heart. I don’t think I’ve recovered from Blood for Blood (hence the bookish slump that I’m in). There’s just something about the way that she writes that makes me want more and more. And this book looks AMAZING! It has time travel, gladiators, Titanic, pirates….how could I not want to read it? *grabby hands* It sounds absolutely perfect! It’s set to be released on September 26th by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
Time flies when you’re plundering history.
Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far’s birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he’s ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past.
But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far’s very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.
