Waiting on Wednesday *78*

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 what I'm waiting on this week:

Storm Siren by Mary Weber
Expected Publication: August 19th 2014 by Harper Collins

“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse—and the girl—can be controlled.

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn't merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth—meaning, she shouldn't even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn't want to be the weapon they've all been waiting for?

Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.
Elemental Magic?! I freaking LOVE elemental magic!  In this case, it's conjuring storms and lightening which I think it beyond intriguing.  Especially in this world where only men are born with these powers and those who are, are killed.  So this MC is pretty much an aberration who gets sold off to the highest bidder and then trained to be an assassin.  And you guys know how I feel about assassins right? ♥  I simply can not wait to dive right into Storm Siren!

Thoughts on this one? Let me know in the comments below when you link me up to your post!

  9. I too love elemental magic and assassins. I've always been kind of wary about elemental magic but I haven't read a bad book about it so far. This one really has a great concept. The cover isn't my favorite but I shall deal ;)

  10. I like the idea of the world- where only men are born with it and are killed for it. Looking forward to the review- I'll decide whether or not I read it depending on what you think!
