Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly waiting to be released.
This weeks Waiting On Wednesday is Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan!
Publication: February 9th 2016 by Harper Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.
But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.
With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.
With lush writing and a star–crossed romance, Reign of Shadows is Sophie Jordan at her best.
I am stupidly excited for this book. I am a huge Sophie Jordan fan despite how long it’s been since I’ve read any of her work (and the fact that I didn’t finish the series yet…shhh…) Shame on me. But, this sounds so cool! I love fantasy novels – especially high fantasy young adult, which seem to be multiplying ever since Throne of Glass *whistles inconspicuously* But, nevertheless, I am excited. The cover is gorgeous, the names are beautiful, and we’ve got a star-crossed romance. Count me in folks, count me in.
