Waiting on Wednesday *80*

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:

Empire of Shadows by Miriam Foster
Bhinian Empire #2
Expected Publication: November 4th 2014 by Harper Teen

Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire’s capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could've imagined. More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.

Mara knew her life in the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?

Empire of Shadows will take readers on a spellbinding journey into the world Miriam Forster first introduced in City of a Thousand Dolls—a world with a divided society, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and deeply laid conspiracies.
Admittedly, I'm still waiting on my copy of book one (City of a Thousand Dolls) that I ordered to ship out and arrive on my doorstep but I couldn't resist featuring this one as my WoW pick this week all the same. It's the kind of thing where I just know I'm going to love the first book: a fantasy known for it's epic world-building, addictive writing style and magical cats with special powers that can communicate telepathically? Hello!  The blurb for this one mentions traitors and conspiracies so count me in.  And have you SEEN that cover??! Swoon!
Thoughts on this one ^^ Have you read the first book?
Let me know when you link me up to your WoW post below :)

  11. I so agree about the covers on these. I was so excited when the first one came out and then didn't manage to ever get to it *sigh* But I grabbed this one from EW so I'll also be eyeing a library copy of book one, haha.
