WAITING ON WEDNESDAY
is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine. This blog hop spotlights the most anticipated upcoming releases we are dying to get our hands on.
Currently, I’m dying to read The Shadow Queen, which will be the first book of the Ravenspire Series by C.J. Redwine. According to her the book is a Snow White retelling and in the genre of dark epic fantasy. Also the books are standalones that all play in the same world. C.J. is currently talking about 2 books on her Goodreads profile.
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.
Omg, this story sounds soooooo good and interesting and asdfghjkl! I really can’t wait to read it because I love dark and twisted books!
The will have 400 pages as hardcover copy, and its release date is February 23rd, 2016 and will be published by Balzer + Bray.
