Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!
The Warlord Gena Showalter 

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter begins a dark, sexy new series–Rise of the Warlords–with a fan favorite character from her beloved Lords of the Underworld series, Taliyah Skyhawk. The ice maiden faces off with her greatest enemy, a villain brutal beyond imagining.

For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon.

The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress powerful enough to overcome his incredible strength. No enchantress desirable enough to make him burn beyond reason. Until now.

With the clock ticking, war between husband and wife ignites. Except Taliyah never expected the merciless king to challenge the future she once envisioned. She certainly never anticipated the thrill of their battles turning into games… The problem is, only one spouse can survive.

Love is a battlefield in Showalter’s The Warlord. 


April is a month of great releases for me! I am so excited for this sort of spinoff from the Lords of the Underworld series. I am a die hard Harpy fan so having Taliyah as the heroine of The Warlord is amazing. I was really scared that Gena Showalter was going to totally leave the Lords of the Underworld universe, so I am so glad it is going to bleed into Rise of the Warlords series. Fingers crossed we get to see lots of our favorite characters as well as fall in love with these new ones.

So, since this release day is a double-hitter, I think it best that we take a couple of days to just absorb the new releases. The big day is April 20, 2021 and is creeping closer and closer. I have checked and the hard covers for The Warlord will be released signed in Walmart stores. I really have a hard time with this because I NEED one, but I despise going into Walmarts. I wonder if I could get it on pick up???

Anyway, remember, April 20. Get your preorders in so you’ll have it ready to go!
