Can’t-Wait Wednesday: The Never King by James Abbott

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by 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.

The Never King by James Abbott

(May 18, 2018 by Pan)

The synopsis pretty much says it all: legendary commander falsely imprisoned for years, and is hell bent on getting vengeance. \\m//

A new legend begins . . .

Xavir Argentum is rotting in gaol. Sentenced to life in the squalor of Hell’s Keep, punishment for an atrocity he didn’t commit, the once legendary commander is all but forgotten. His elite band of warriors are dead – and the kingdom he was poised to inherit is oppressed by the tyrant who framed him. For half a decade now, Xavir has ruled nothing but a prison gang.

Yet vengeance comes to those who wait. When a former spymaster infiltrates the Keep, bearing news of his old enemy’s treachery, plans are forged. A few are compelled to restore peace – an exiled queen, an outcast witch, and an unlikely alliance of rogues and heroes. But peace and vengeance make poor companions. And first, Xavir must make his escape . . .

    I love the sound of this one! What an unusual premise…


  4. That’s a cool looking one! Does Pan = Pan Macmillan, and is this book from a UK publisher only?


    • Yes, Pan Macmillan! (For some reason, Goodreads only had “Pan”, so in a rush, that what I put down also).

      Well, I found this one on Barnes and Nobel, so it does have a ebook release also, but in terms of US publisher… I guess I don’t see one? Dang, it didn’t even click with me that Pan Mac was UK :/
