Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey & Don't Call the Wolf by Aleksandra Ross

Can't-Wait is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released! This meme is based off of Jill @ Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday meme.

This week's upcoming book spotlights are: 

The Book of Koli (Rampart Trilogy, #1)
The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey
Publication: April 14th, 2020
Paperback. 416 pages.

"The first in a gripping new trilogy, The Book of Koli charts the journey of one unforgettable young boy struggling to find his place in a chilling post-apocalyptic world. Perfect for readers of Station Eleven and Annihilation. 

Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognizable world. A world where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly vines and seeds that will kill you where you stand. And if they don't get you, one of the dangerous shunned men will. 

Koli has lived in Mythen Rood his entire life. He knows the first rule of survival is that you don't venture beyond the walls. 

What he doesn't know is -- what happens when you aren't given a choice?"
I'm always down for more post-apocalyptic novels and this one sounds like it has a particularly unique concept attached that I am so excited to check out. My request to Orbit for a copy is already in, so hopefully I get a chance to read it!

Don't Call the Wolf
Don't Call the Wolf by Aleksandra Ross
Publication: April 28th, 2020
Hardcover. 512 pages.

"Fans of Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black will devour this gorgeously imagined fantasy about a dark forest besieged by monsters—and the wild queen who has sworn to drive them out. 

A fierce young queen, neither human nor lynx, who fights to protect a forest humans have long abandoned. 

An exhausted young soldier, last of his name, who searches for the brother who disappeared beneath those trees without a trace. 

A Golden Dragon, fearsome and vengeful, whose wingbeats haunt their nightmares and their steps. 

When these three paths cross at the fringes of a war between monsters and men, shapeshifter queen and reluctant hero strike a deal that may finally turn the tide against the rising hordes of darkness. Ren will help Lukasz find his brother…if Lukasz promises to slay the Dragon. 

But promises are all too easily broken."
I love this gorgeous cover and I this book just sounds so magical and captivating. Really hoping to have a chance to read it, it sounds wonderful!
