Waiting on Wednesday #12: All the Wandering Light – Heather Fawcett

Synopsis

The second in a sweeping and action-packed fantasy duology loosely inspired by the early climbers of Mount Everest—perfect for fans of Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore.

After the terrifying events on Mount Raksha, the witches have returned, and River has betrayed Kamzin to regain his dark powers. The witches’ next step: march on the Three Cities and take over the Empire—led by River’s brother, Esha.

If Kamzin is to save Azmiri and prevent the destruction of the Empire, she must find a star that fell in the Ash Mountains to the north. Fallen stars have immense power, and if Kamzin and Lusha can find the star, they can use its magic to protect their homeland. To get there, Kamzin has allied with Azar-at, the dangerous and deceptive fire demon, who can grant her great power—in exchange for pieces of her soul. But River wants the star too, and as their paths collide in dangerous and unexpected ways, Kamzin must wrestle with both her guilt and her conflicted feelings for the person who betrayed her.

Facing dark magic, a perilous journey, and a standoff against the witches, can Kamzin, Lusha, and Tem find the star and save their Empire?

Thoughts

Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday! This week I’m talking about All the Wandering Light the second instalment in the Even the Darkest Stars duology. I read the first book near enough in one sitting, I loved this beautiful icy cold setting and I really adored the characters. I adore the fact that it’s inspired by the accounts of early climbers of Mount Everest. It’s such a unique idea for a fantasy story. I’ve been dying for more since I turned the last page so I’m incredibly excited about the release of this next book. The fact that it’s a duology means this will also be the last book and I have no idea how it will end. The cover is also stunning if it has as many twists and turns as the last book I’m sure I’ll be up all night reading it. All the Wandering Light is publishing 24th January 2019 from Harper Collins.
