Waiting on Wednesday #72

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on!  

This week . . .

Title:  The Shadow Queen
Series:  Ravenspire #1
Author:  C.J. Redwine (Website | Twitter)
Age Group:  Young Adult
Publisher:  Balzer + Bray
Publication Date:  February 23, 2016
Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.
In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.
But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

Why I'm waiting on The Shadow Queen this Wednesday:  I honestly haven't heard much about this other than the fact that it's a retelling.  But I really like the cover and the synopsis sounds interesting so I'm willing to give it a shot!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. This cover looks amazing. The telltale signs of instalove in the summary put me off a bit, but I know summaries can sometimes be deceptive. I'll have to keep an eye out for this one.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. The cover was definitely what initially drew me in! I'm hoping instalove stays far from these pages but you never know.

      Thanks for stopping by!
