Waiting on Wednesday: The Forbidden City by Deborah A. Wolf & The Freeze-Frame Revolution by Peter Watts

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released!

This week's upcoming book spotlight is:
The Forbidden City (The Dragon's Legacy #2) by Deborah A. Wolf

From Goodreads:

"Sulema Ja'Akari is an elite warrior, one of the desert people known as the Zeeranim. She is also the daughter of the Dragon King of Atualon, whose magic is the only thing that prevents the earth dragon from waking. Should the dragon end her sleep, their world will be destroyed. 

The Dragon King is dying. As heir to his throne Sulema must be trained to take his place, yet the more she learns, the less she trusts the sinister agendas that surround her. Knowing that her life hangs in the balance, Sulema seeks to return to the Zeera.

Salvation may lie with her mother, Hafsa Azeina, who walks the dark and deadly pathways of the Dreaming Lands. To save her daughter, the dreamshifter will be forced to strike a pact with her greatest enemy, a huntress who would rather kill her than assist her. 

Upheaval stretches far beyond Atualon--to the forbidden city of Khanbul where the emperor rules with an iron hand. An elite cadre of rebel conspirators chafes beneath his rule and plots to overthrow him. 

Among them is Jian de Allyr, the half-dae prince born of a human mother and a twilight lord. If they are to challenge the emperor in his stronghold, however, Jian and his co-conspirators must secretly raise an army..."

This is the second book in Deborah A. Wolf's The Dragon's Legacy series and I cannot wait to dive into this one! I may need to give myself a brief refresher on the events of the first, but I'm pretty excited to do that as well. Also, is that cover not incredible?

The Freeze-Frame Revolution by Peter Watts
Publication Date: June 12th, 2018
Tachyon Publications
192 pages
Pre-order: Amazon Book Depository 

From Goodreads:
"She believed in the mission with all her heart. But that was sixty million years ago. 

How do you stage a mutiny when you're only awake one day in a million? How do you conspire when your tiny handful of potential allies changes with each shift? How do you engage an enemy that never sleeps, that sees through your eyes and hears through your ears and relentlessly, honestly, only wants what best for you?

Sunday Ahzmundin is about to find out."

I know next to nothing about this one other than this description, but I am so intrigued by this concept and look forward to seeing how it is executed.
