Waiting on Wednesday #8

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in weekly meme Waiting on Wednesday. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Every week we highlight upcoming releases we are excited about!

This month I picked Shadow Run by Michael Miller and Adrianne Strickland!



Here are Shadow Run's stats:
Pages: 400
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Expected Publication: March 21, 2017
"Firefly" meets DUNE in this action-packed sci-fi adventure about a close-knit, found family of a crew navigating a galaxy of political intrigue and resource-driven power games.

Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can’t resist her, even if her ship is an antique.

As for Nev, he’s a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary.

But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they’re more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive.

Nev’s mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she’ll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power—and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew.
Why I'm Waiting

This sounds like an epic science fiction adventure! I love political intrigue, and it sounds like there might be a hint of a romance too. If Miller and Strickland pull this off, I will be amazed. I'm very much looking forward to this space adventure! The only thing that I am not looking forward to is my failure to pronounce any of these names! :D 

What did you pick this week? Are you looking forward to Shadow Run?

Thanks  so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!
