[Waiting on Wednesday] Spellhacker by M.K. England

Waiting on Wednesday

 

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event created by Breaking the Spine in which an anticipated title is highlighted. You can find their website here.

I am a BIG fan of heist novels, so when the synopsis for Spellhacker crossed my notice I thought it sounded super interested. Magic has become a tightly controlled commodity (not cool), so the main characters on a lucrative job that siphons magic. Very illegal, but one more job is supposed to the it.

Famous last words, right?

I can’t wait to see how M.K. England writes the characters in and out of the twists that are sure to pop up in this new book. It’s gonna be a doozy. 👀

From the author of The Disasters, this genre-bending YA fantasy heist story is perfect for fans of Marie Lu and Amie Kaufman.

In Kyrkarta, magic—known as maz—was once a freely available natural resource. Then an earthquake released a magical plague, killing thousands and opening the door for a greedy corporation to make maz a commodity that’s tightly controlled—and, of course, outrageously expensive.

Which is why Diz and her three best friends run a highly lucrative, highly illegal maz siphoning gig on the side. Their next job is supposed to be their last heist ever.

But when their plan turns up a powerful new strain of maz that (literally) blows up in their faces, they’re driven to unravel a conspiracy at the very center of the spellplague—and possibly save the world.

No pressure.
