Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly 'hump-day' feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where us book bloggers get together & spotlight an upcoming release we're especially looking forward to!
Here's my pick for this week:
Release Date: June 19th 2013I'm not even going to start on that breathtaking cover and all the EPIC-ness it displays...not even going to comment on the sweet colours or anything like that. Nope, I'm not even going there XD ...because what really has me drooling here is: Fairies & those mysterious Winter Queens!!! The Fay are among my absolute favorite things to read about and I'm especially jazzed about the Winter Fairies and how their described as 'a force of nature'. The war that seems to be brewing among fairies of all kinds here sounds really intriguing too, I can't wait to see Ilyenna handles everything!!
Author: Amber Argyle~Becoming a winter queen will make Ilyenna as cold and cruel and deadly as winter itself, but it might be the only way to save her people from a war they have no hope of winning.~
Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family.
Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn’t just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation.
With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power—forever.
Thoughts? What are you waiting on??
