WoW #173 – The King’s Questioner

Posted November 13, 2019 by Lillian in Features / 7 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! More 2020 goodness today. I’m eagerly anticipating The King’s Questioner by Nikki Katz. I love the blurb for this one. A gift (or curse) of being a mental picklock, a secret princess who may or may not cause the destruction of a kingdom, and a quest to find her? Yes, please. I’m here for it! I steered clear of fantasy in 2019 and focused on more scifi, now I’m missing them. Bring me all the fantasies y’all!

Length: 304 pages

From the author of The Midnight Dance comes an epic YA fantasy featuring royal drama, dark magic, and a secret that could topple a kingdom.

Kalen has been cursed with a gift: he’s a mental picklock, able to access a person’s memories and secrets by touch. His skills make him the perfect questioner to the king, and he spends his days interrogating prisoners of the crown.

But when Kalen’s estranged childhood friend, Prince Cirrus, falls into a sudden coma, the king begs Kalen to intervene. By accessing Cirrus’ mind, Kalen saves his life—and uncovers a terrifying secret. The prince has a sister, banished long ago, and she is the key to the destruction or survival of the kingdom.

With the help of Cirrus and a silver-haired thief named Luna, Kalen must find the princess and bring her home. Or risk death at the hands of his king.
