The Tiger at Midnight
by Swati Teerdhala
Expected Publication: April 23rd, 2019
Genres: Young Adult Fantasy.
Summary from Goodreads:
Esha is a legend, but no one knows. It’s only in the shadows that she moonlights as the Viper, the rebels’ highly skilled assassin. She’s devoted her life to avenging what she lost in the royal coup, and now she’s been tasked with her most important mission to date: taking down the ruthless General Hotha.
Kunal has been a soldier since childhood, training morning and night to uphold the power of King Vardaan. His uncle, the general, has ensured that Kunal never strays from the path—even as a part of Kunal longs to join the outside world, which has been growing only more volatile.
Then Esha’s and Kunal’s paths cross—and an unimaginable chain of events unfolds. Both the Viper and the soldier think they’re calling the shots, but they’re not the only players moving the pieces. As the bonds that hold their land in order break down and the sins of the past meet the promise of a new future, both rebel and soldier must make unforgivable choices.
Drawing inspiration from ancient Indian history and Hindu mythology, the first book in Swati Teerdhala’s debut fantasy trilogy captivates with electric romance, stunning action, and the fierce bonds that hold people together—and that drive them apart.
Why I’m Waiting for Tiger At Midnight:
This sounds so exciting and diverse – and even though the blurb makes this sound supremely epic, the cover got me first! I haven’t read any fantasy inspired by Indian and Hindu mythology and honestly I’m here for this book to change that. Furthermore, this book so far has got amazing reviews from some of my most trusted reviewers who were lucky enough to get an ARC, so I currently have intense grabby hands.
