“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?:

Because I rather liked the author's writing in her last series. (Even though I haven't finished that series yet. I swear I will!)

A fugitive, crowned princess? Fun!

A prince the author once described as a cross between Chris Pine (as Kirk in Star Trek) and Flynn Rider (Tangled)? NEED!
Plus that cover is just awesome. It looks like you could just grab the apple straight from the screen. Only, let's not though.

What is your Waiting On Wednesday pick this week?

    1. She said that back in March (??) at Jodi Meadow's The Orphan Queen launch party at Books of Wonder. The crowd loved that, let me tell you.

      Next year is going to be super great for books. We are all going to start the year off poor with all the releases.

      Thank you for stopping by.
