“Waiting On” Wednesday is a feature started by the lovely lady over at Breaking the Spine as a way of showcasing the books that are coming out (pre-published) that we are most excited about. I haven’t participated in one yet but one of my most anticipated books JUST got the cover released and it is BRILLIANT. May I introduce you to….
Publishing Date: March 28th 2017
In an alternate Victorian England where social prestige stems from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, sixteen-year old Anna Arden is barred from the society she yearns for by a defect of blood. She believes herself Barren, unable to perform the most rudimentary spells. Anna would do anything to belong, but after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spells, Anna finds herself exiled with her aging grandmother to her grandmother’s native Hungary.
Her life might well be over.
But in Hungary, Anna finds that nothing about her world or her own lack of magic is quite as it seems. Fissures in the Binding that holds her world’s magic are expanding, and the ancient creatures bound by that spell beg Anna to release them. As rebellion sweeps across Hungary, Anna’s unique ability to break spells becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Roma, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted—or embrace her ability, destroy the Binding, spark a revolution, and change the face of magic itself.
This book will appeal to fans of Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy and Naomi Novik’s UPROOTED.
I mean come on, look at this cover! Read the synopsis! I love books that involve history and I love even more alternate history books that weave together magic in them. No matter how many books I read this girl is 100% a fantasy girl and I can’t help but be attracted to books that have all of these elements in them.
Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! This book has me pumped!! Doesn’t it sound so awesome!
