Waiting on Wednesday: The Last Namsara

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Last Namsara
Author: Kristen Ciccarelli
Series: Iskari #1
Release Date: 3rd October 2017

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be dark—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death bringer. 

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up hearing in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

  4. Ooo, interesting one! :D That's one of those covers that the closer you look at it, the more you see. The synopsis, at first, felt a bit... Cliche, almost? That's not quite the right word, but it didn't completely grab me. By the end, though, all the names and things given in there gave it a fun little atmosphere that intrigued me more. I think it'd be a great read in that respect. :)

    Edge of Night

    1. OOO.....OMG!!! Hello there old friend!!!!!!!! How have you been??? :)
      I get what you mean and I do admit this cover is an interesting one, the more you look in to it the more it reveals it secrets to you!

    2. Hello, hello!! :D I've been great, how 'bout yourself? It's hot today, though, so I am currently dying.

      Perfect way to phrase it! "it reveals its secrets to you" :D I especially like the area with the shiny red jewel type thing. Nice idea on the part of the cover designer to add that strip of light!
