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. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
And the book I am waiting for is…
From the blurb:
A girl hellbent on finding the friend she lost. A planet on the brink of total corporate destruction. One way to find answers amidst the chaos: team up with a traitor to help stage a revolution.
Genetically engineered from birth, Remy Castell was brainwashed and trained to be a corporate spy. But then a mission that had her infiltrate a syndicate gang ended with Remy becoming true friends with her mark, and everything changed. When her genopath partner, Kiran, discovered Remy’s intentions to stop their mission, he left her for dead in the jungle wilds of Maraas and disappeared with the girl Remy failed to save. Two years later, Remy is still chasing Kiran across worlds, trying to find her lost friend.
After nearly catching him on Tundar before the infamous sled race, Remy follows Kiran back to the same jungle planet where everything started. But nothing on Maraas is how it was two years ago. A megolamaniac corpo director now has an iron grip on the world that other groups are trying to overthrow. It’s a time bomb that Remy wants nothing to do with. When Remy finally finds Kiran in the midst of the chaos, instead of running again, he offers her a deal: help with the revolution and in exchange, he’ll tell her exactly where her lost friend is. But how can Remy trust a boy that betrayed her once before?
With the giant hellstorm that encircles the planet growing stronger by the minute and entire planet on the edge of all-out war, Remy will have to decide just how far she’s willing to go to save one girl before the impending storm drowns them all.

About the author:
Meg originally wanted to be a spy. Instead she somehow found herself teaching overseas in China and Malaysia before ending up in Colorado, where it snows entirely too much.
She taught middle and high school for eight years before jumping into the tech industry as a content designer. Her debut novel, COLD THE NIGHT, FAST THE WOLVES, was released in 2022 from Wednesday Books. She was a Pitch Wars mentee in 2018 and a mentor in 2020-21.
When not reading or writing, she’s kicking things at her Muay Thai gym with her boyfriend, playing video games, or obsessing over Sailor Moon fanart.
Fun Facts: Meg likes Oxford commas, bossing her Roomba around, and people-watching at airports.
