Waiting on Wednesday - The Shattered Court

Wednesday, 15 April 2015

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week on WoW is The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott. The summary has everything I like in a fantasy genre book. Also, the cover is really pretty - yep, I'm a cover girl. A great cover doesn't mean the book will be great, but an alluring cover can be the first step to read the book. "The Shattered Court" will be released on April 28th.

"First in a new fantasy series from the author of the Novels of the Half-Light City.

Lady Sophia Kendall, thirty-second in line to the throne, is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed—or perhaps cursed—with magic. When a vicious attack by Anglion’s ancient enemies leaves the kingdom in chaos, Sophia is forced to flee the court. Her protector by happenstance is Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard, raised all his life to be fiercely loyal to the Crown.

Then Sophia’s powers manifest stronger than she ever imagined they would, and Cameron and she are inextricably linked in the process. As a witch unbound by marriage rites, Sophia is not only a threat to the established order of her country, but is also a weapon for those who seek to destroy it. Faced with old secrets and new truths, she must decide if she will fight for her country or succumb to the delicious temptation of power.…
