Waiting on Wednesday #122

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Title: Ash Princess
Series: N/A
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Publication Date: April 24, 2018

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she's not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.
When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can't keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser's warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn't expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who's been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart's sister, Cress.
Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she's willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she's willing to sacrifice to become queen.

Why I'm waiting on Ash Princess this Wednesday: I'll be totally honest, I was totally drawn in my the title and the cover.  I mean, holy cow, how gorgeous is that?  But the summary sounds amazing, too.  Sounds like a lot of internal conflict and flirtation with enemies.  I'm so up for that!

What do you think of this cover?  Isn't it just amazing?  Are you looking forward to this one?  What are you waiting on this Wednesday?  Let me know in the comments below and leave a link to your post!  


  1. This book sounds awesome and the cover is gorgeous! I feel like I remember seeing it on Edelweiss or NetGalley... it's on my list of Winter '18 I'm considering. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Ashtyn. =)

    1. Right?!?! I feel like I can just sit there and stare at the cover all day without getting bored! Hopefully the story has the same effect :)

      Thanks for stopping by, Alyssa!
