Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: February 9, 2016 
Genre: Young Adult, Retelling 
Pages: 320 
Published By: Simon Pulse 

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

  I believe I said it last week, but I am a sucker for retelling's.  I love all of the different ways that authors twist favourite tales into something unique and fun.  Though Snow White is not uncommon, I will admit I have yet to read a retelling that I haven't loved.  I'm intrigued that the princess (Lorelai) has magic, and that in this case it may be what saves her and her kingdom.  Basically I love that I haven't read something like this and it's another book I can add to my must read retelling list!

What are you waiting on this week? We would love to hear it!
Make sure you link up your post as well so we can stop by.
