A Memory Called Empire (Teixcalaan, #1)From Goodreads: 

Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the multi-system Teixcalaanli Empire only to discover that her predecessor, the previous ambassador from their small but fiercely independent mining Station, has died. But no one will admit that his death wasn't an accident--or that Mahit might be next to die, during a time of political instability in the highest echelons of the imperial court. 

Now, Mahit must discover who is behind the murder, rescue herself, and save her Station from Teixcalaan's unceasing expansion--all while navigating an alien culture that is all too seductive, engaging in intrigues of her own, and hiding a deadly technological secret--one that might spell the end of her Station and her way of life--or rescue it from annihilation."

The reviews for this already have me so curious to find out what this book is all about. It seems ike it's going to be a really exciting and clever sci-fi and I just love the sound of it. 

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?



  1. I'm curious about this as well, the cover makes it look like fantasy so that intrigues me even more😊

    1. I thought it was definitely a fantasy as well based on the cover! Then I saw the sci-fi aspect mentioned and people calling it a space opera and I realized oh, maybe not haha.

  2. Ooh this sounds fun. And also sounds like there might be some fun intrigue going on which I always like haha!

    Love that cover (that's quite the throne)!!!

    1. It really does! And seriously, I'm not sure I've seen one quite that extravagant before.

  3. This sounds interesting. I think I might be looking into this one when it comes out.

  4. I'm super curious about this one and always on the lookout for good sci fi reads, so thanks for putting this book on my radar.
