Can’t Wait Wednesday #14 The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!


When I came across this, it sounded familiar so I decided to go searching. It is a retelling of Shakespeare’s King Lear, so, there is no doubt in my mind that I am going to have to get my hands on this one! I am so excited for it, the wait until March will be just awful though.

How about you, what are excited for this week?

A kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.

The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.

The king’s three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm’s only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.

Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.

    A reviesion of King Lear? Interesting. I actually read King Lear in college so I will be interested to see how it works in this.

    This isn’t my normal type of read but that cover is just screaming “read me, read me!” So we’ll see, maybe I’ll check it out 🙂
