Can’t-Wait Wednesday-The Theft of Sunlight by Intisar Khanani

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Goodreads Synopsis: I did not choose this fate. But I will not walk away from it. Children have been disappearing from across Menaiya for longer than Amraeya ni Ansarim can remember. When her friend’s sister is snatched, Rae knows she can’t look away any longer – even if that means seeking answers from the royal court, where her country upbringing and clubfoot will only invite ridicule. Yet the court holds its share of surprises. There she discovers an ally in the foreign princess, who recruits her as an attendant. Armed with the princess’s support, Rae seeks answers in the dark city streets, finding unexpected help in a rough-around-the-edges street thief with secrets of his own. But treachery runs deep, and the more Rae uncovers, the more she endangers the kingdom itself. 

About the author: Intisar Khanani is a phenomenal writer of Young Adult fantasy. Her Dauntless Path series is comprised of Thorn and the prequel novella Brambles, with her latest book The Theft of Sunlight slated to be released in less than two months.

I devoured the first two books in this series, and I’m looking forward to the next one! Fairytale retellings are such a fun read, and Intisar Khanani really makes them her own.

Pre-order The Theft of Sunlight from your local Indie bookstore, or mark your calendar for its release on March 23rd, 2021!
