Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Ashes of the Sun by Django Wexler

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.


Long ago, a magical war destroyed an empire, and a new one was built in its ashes. But still the old grudges simmer, and two siblings will fight on opposite sides to save their world, in the start of Django Wexler’s new epic fantasy trilogy

Gyre hasn’t seen his beloved sister since their parents sold her to the mysterious Twilight Order. Now, twelve years after her disappearance, Gyre’s sole focus is revenge, and he’s willing to risk anything and anyone to claim enough power to destroy the Order.

Chasing rumors of a fabled city protecting a powerful artifact, Gyre comes face-to-face with his lost sister. But she isn’t who she once was. Trained to be a warrior, Maya wields magic for the Twilight Order’s cause. Standing on opposite sides of a looming civil war, the two siblings will learn that not even the ties of blood will keep them from splitting the world in two.

I’ve been wanting to read something by Wexler for a while now and this one has caught my interest. I’m looking forward to a story centered on siblings! Ashes of the Sun is expected July 21st 2020 from Orbit.

    I’ve been looking forward to this one as well – that sibling rivalry, acting on opposite sides of the conflict, seems to be a common theme in fantasy this year.

      I haven’t read a lot of books that have come out this year, a bit unusual for me I think, so I must have missed some of the others but I’m definitely interested in this theme!

    I do love the sound of this but decided I just couldn’t fit it in for a while – I’ve added it to my wishlist for now.
    Hope it’s as good as it sounds.
