WoW (Waiting on Wednesday) is een wekelijks terugkerende tag die wordt gehost door Breaking the Spine.
Hierin vertellen boekliefhebbers naar welke boeken ze uitkijken.
Deze week kijk ik uit naar:
17 year old Adina, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Ceres, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate.
18 year old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition—The Killings—that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out.
When Adina stuns the court with her hidden powers, she finds herself wrongfully imprisoned, doomed to an even worse life than she could imagine. Thanos, smitten, must choose if he will risk it all for her. Yet, thrust into a world of duplicity and deadly secrets, Adina quickly learns there are those who rule, and those who are their pawns. And that sometimes, being chosen is the worst that can happen.
Waarom dit boek / Why am I waiting?:
Ik houd van stoere, kick ass heldinnen en ik heb het gevoel dat Adina zo’n heldin is. Ik hoop dat de cover klopt en dat de pijl en boog haar wapen zijn want ik houd nog meer van een kick ass heldin die pijl en boog beheerst.
The sound of this book is intriguing and I love a kick ass heroine. And something tells me that Adina is just that. But what I love even more is a kick ass heroine with a bow and arrow! I hope the cover is right.
