Waiting on WednesdayWaiting 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:
Red Queen by Victoria AveyardSupernatural abilities, class struggles, nobility, deceit, betrayal and war. Man does Red Queen ever sound EPIC! Sure it sounds like there's a love triangle brewing between the MC and those two princes, but I'm willing to go along for the ride, if at least one of them draws me in. Ideally both! And hopefully the romance will take a backseat to the characters and court intrigue. All in a mixture of both high fantasy and dystopian setting. So far Red Queen has been compared to a mix of Graceling, Game of Thrones and Divergent. All I can say is: GIMME GIMME GIMME!
Expected Publication: February 10th 2015 by Harper Teen
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard--the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince--and Mare against her own heart.
