Waiting on Wednesday *49*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
Death Sworn #1
Expected Publication : March 4th 2014

When Ileni lost her magic, she lost everything: her place in society, her purpose in life, and the man she had expected to spend her life with. So when the Elders sent her to be magic tutor to a secret sect of assassins, she went willingly, even though the last two tutors had died under mysterious circumstances.

But beneath the assassins’ caves, Ileni will discover a new place and a new purpose… and a new and dangerous love. She will struggle to keep her lost magic a secret while teaching it to her deadly students, and to find out what happened to the two tutors who preceded her. But what she discovers will change not only her future, but the future of her people, the assassins… and possibly the entire world.
I'll admit that Death Sworn first caught my attention with it's striking cover BUT that was quickly overshadowed by talk of lost magic, assassins, murder mysteries & hopes of changing the world! This. Sounds. Awesome.  I can't wait to get my hands on it!

What are you waiting on?
Link me up :)


  1. Magic, assassins and an awesome cover. I know enough :D


  2. the cover doesn't strike me and the premise sounds a tad boring but i will keep an eye on it.

  6. Gorgeous cover! I want to be there!!

  7. Agreed! I'm glad I saw the cover at the same time as I heard about this one, since the title sounds more horror than the cover looks ;-)

    I'm still obsessing about parallel worlds this week: my WoW

  8. That synopsis has me hooked! I definitely need to pick up a copy of this one as soon as it's released as it sounds fantastic. Thanks for the introduction!

  9. Secret sect of assassins. That's pretty much all it took for me to want this one! Made me think of Throne of Glass, kind of :) I requested it from edelweiss but haven't heard back yet *keeps fingers crossed*
    Awesome pick, hun :)
