Waiting on Wedesday *63*

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!

Hi everyone and happy 2014!  I took a brief hiatus with my WoW posts during the holidays for some 2013 recaps posts, but I'm back this week & here's my pick:

Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick
Expected Publication: February 27th 2014 by Razorbill

Natalya knows a secret.

A magical Faberge egg glows within the walls of Russia's Winter Palace.

It holds a power rooted in the land and stolen from the mystics.

A power that promises a life of love for her and Alexei Romanov.

Power, that, in the right hands, can save her way of life.

But it's not in the right hands.
The major selling point that this story has for me is the fact that it's a historical fantasy set in Russia.  I can't remember ever reading a book that was set in Russia!  The mystery and fantasy elements only sweeten the deal here - I love the sound of a magical Faberge Egg (how's that for originality?!)  that has great power and promise in the right hands...but it also happens to be in the wrong hands.  I can't wait to see how all of this unfolds!

Don't forget to link me up to you WoW posts everyone ♥
Happy Hump Day!


  1. I keep seeing this book around lately. I kind of like the cover but I think I won't get it for myself although it sounds kind of magical. Almost.
    Hope you get it soon!

  2. I love your pick! I had this one in mind for my next week's WoW! I can't wait to read it, it really sounds so good - a historical fantasy set in Russia? Give it to me now! :D

  3. This one sounds fantastic! I had seen the cover on quite a few blogs but hadn't actually taken the time to check out its synopsis. I'm definitely adding it to my TBR pile. Thanks for the introduction!

  4. Eep, this is great! Never heard of it before, but I'm also sold on magical historical Russia :) I mean, there's the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo that is Russia-inspired, but it's not really Russia. And there was this one YA that promised historical Russia stuff but didn't really deliver for me. So I really hope this one will be amazing!
    P.S. I also realized I hadn't done a WoW in a month or so!

  5. Ooh I love the description for this, definitely adding it to my wishlist!

  6. This sounds like a really great story. I agree, the setting in Russia is indeed a great selling point, and the magic Faberge egg is awesome. They made some truly beautiful ones during the time of the Russian royals.

    I think this one will make its way on to my TBR as well. Thanks for sharing, Micheline :)

    Happy New Year! I hope 2014 will be a great year for you, filled with joy and happiness, good health and joy, love and laughter - and of course excellent books.
