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.

My Can’t-Wait Wednesday book this week is Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters by Aimee Ogden. This looks to be another amazing SF/F book from Tordotdom.

Summary of Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters

From Goodreads: Gene-edited human clans have scattered throughout the galaxy. They’ve adapted themselves to environments as severe as the desert and the sea.

Atuale, the daughter of a Sea-Clan lord, sparked a war by choosing her land-dwelling love. And rejecting her place among her people. Now her husband and his clan are dying of an incurable plague. Atuale’s sole hope for finding a cure is to travel off-planet.

The black-market mercenary known as the World Witch—and Atuale’s former lover is the one person she could ask for help.

Time, politics, bureaucracy, and her own conflicted desires stand between Atuale and the hope for her adopted clan.


Doesn’t that sound amazing? Adding it to your TBR pile? Tell me what you think in the comments below.

Aimee Ogden is a former science teacher and software tester; she now writes stories about sad astronauts, angry princesses, and dead gods. A graduate of Viable Paradise 22, she lives in Madison, Wisconsin where the beer is always fresh and the curds are always fried.IMG_3223 small

Her debut novella “Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters” is coming from in 2021; “Local Star”, an unrelated novella, will come from Interstellar Flight Press later in the year.

She’s also the co-editor of Translunar Travelers Lounge, a new speculative fiction devoted to fun, optimistic stories.

When she’s not anchored to her computer, she can be found running or working out at the local YMCA, where she recently became a trainer (which surprised her as much as anyone else).
