Waiting on Wednesday *60*

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:

Promise of Shadows by Justine Ireland
Expected Publication: March 11th 2014

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.

Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.

But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?
I'm sorry, but did I just read 'dark goddess'?!  And you all know how much I adore mythology of any kind but when you combine the gods with assassins, harpies and magic - I couldn't possibly resist.  Nope, sorry it's just not going to happen!  I am hoping that the romantic element hinted at in the blurb won't be of the insta-love variety or take over the plot though...I'd like my myths and 'dark goddess goodness' front and center please! ;-)

Thoughts?  Let me know + link me up to your WoW posts lovelies ♥

  6. Woah, how have I not heard of this before? o.O Harpies and assassins, maybe revenge for her sister? Bring it!! I hope the same as you though - that they keep away the insta-love, or any too romance-focused angle on the whole thing in general. Thanks so much for highlighting this one, hun!
