Waiting on Wednesday #84


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week's pick is WINTER QUEEN by Amber Argyle.
It's going to be published on June 19th, 2013 by Starling Publishing.

Goodreads Summary:
~Becoming a winter queen will make Ilyenna as cold and cruel and deadly as winter itself, but it might be the only way to save her people from a war they have no hope of winning.~

Mortally wounded during a raid, seventeen-year-old Ilyenna is healed by winter fairies who present her with a seductive offer: become one of them and share their power over winter. But that power comes with a price. If she accepts, she will become a force of nature, lose her humanity, and abandon her family.

Unwilling to pay such a high price, Ilyenna is enslaved by one of the invaders, Darrien. While in captivity, she learns the attack wasn’t just a simple raid but part of a larger plot to overthrow her entire nation.

With the enemy stealing over the mountains and Darrien coming to take her to his bed, Ilyenna must decide whether to resurrect the power the fairies left behind. Doing so will allow her to defeat Darrien and the other invaders, but if she embraces winter, she will lose herself to that destroying power—forever.

I'm almost tempted to say that this cover would be enough reason to pick up Winter Queen. So gorgeous! But the actual reason why I put this onto my to-read list is the fact that it's been way too long since I've read an awesome faerie novel and this one sounds really great. Can't wait to find out more about it!


What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  13. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
