Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!

Here's what I'm waiting on this week: 


Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles #1)

Release Date: January 2nd 2013
Author: Ellen Oh 

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...


Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.


Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

Ever since first laid eyes on this cover I was drawn to it.  And then the synopsis starts out with mentioning that the most epic warrior of all...is a girl.  Then there was something about yellow eyes...and I blacked out.  When I came too, I immediately added it to my wishlist, as well as the side bar on my blog - I can not wait to get my hands on this one guys!  I just oozes all the attributes I tend to love: epic fantasy adventure, kick-ass female protagonist and even dragons!!   Gimme, gimme, gimme!

What are you waiting on this week?
