Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Oculta by Maya Motayne. I absolutely adored the first book in the series and I can’t wait to get back into this world.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. It is a spin-off of the original meme, Waiting on Wednesday, that was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine.

After joining forces to save Castallan from an ancient magical evil, Alfie and Finn haven’t seen each other in months. Alfie is finally ready to take on the mantle of crown prince. His first task: preparing for the peace talks with Castallan’s former colonizers, the nation of Englass.
But when the summit coincides with the reemergence of Los Toros, the mysterious syndicate of assassins responsible for Alfie’s brother’s death, and Finn’s unexpected installation as one of the four Thief Lords of Castallan, the two must reunite to discover the hidden link between these events—before it’s too late.
A Forgery of Magic is one series that has such an intriguing concept. It seems to be hit or miss for some, but I really enjoyed the system of magic and the characters. It will be interesting to find out where the story goes next.
