Waiting on Wednesday #5 : Oftomes Novels


Waiting on Wednesday created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Here’s my entry for the day, it’s from the Oftomes Publishing. Oftomes Publishing owned by the BookTuber Benjaminoftomes.


Secrets in Phoenix Cover

Release Date: Spring 2016


The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia ‘Lennie’ Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Byron, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.

With Byron bringing the crew’s total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in uniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted Rose; who is determined to thwart their quest and bring down its leaders.

Together the eight heirs fight for survival, friendship and love.”


Secrets in Phoenix Cover

Release Date: January 05,2016


“Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words- to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls- outside of The Sanctuary- is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.” Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. Trusting no one, she lives as a rogue, fending only for herself. Then in a moment of rash judgment, she breaks all of her rules to save a child, and in that moment her life is turned upside down. When the rescue mission goes awry, Phoenix is captured by an underground group who claims no allegiance with either the Tribes nor The Sanctuary. She finds herself in the most dangerous game of survival she has ever played. In her captivity, only one person- the handsome and oddly sympathetic Triven- shows Phoenix something she has never before experienced: kindness. While warring with unfamiliar emotions and still skeptical of her captors’ motives, Phoenix quickly realizes that these people may just hold the key to her lost memories. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself.”


Why I am waiting?

I’m a part of Oftomes team and I’m eager to read these novels next year. First, let’s talk about Inherited. Look at that cover, I have this feeling that our protagonist is a badass and I really really love fantasy.(well,because of Cassandra Clare.) Second, is New World Rising. New World Rising by Jennifer Wilson was published before and now its re- published to Oftomes. Dystopian stories is one of my favorite genres so I’m eager to read this. Who can you trust?  That question makes me want to read it right away.

So, that’s my WoW. I hope you can find new novels and add it on your TBR.
