I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a WoW post, so I’m excited!
“Waiting on” Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, and spotlights an upcoming release we are excited for! I say, we, but I’m excited for it. Maybe you will be too after you read this! 🙂
This sounds right up my alley! Historical fiction and magic, and I’m seriously hoping it doesn’t disappoint! I was extremely disappointed with A Shadow Bright and Burning and fell for the gorgeous cover. Sadly, nothing good inside. 😦
Here’s the synopsis for Blood Rose Rebellion:
“Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.
Her life might well be over.
In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.
As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.”
Look at how gorgeous this cover is! I actually managed to get an eARC of this book. I haven’t read it yet but I will soon and hopefully post my review up before the official release date!
Blood Rose Rebellion releases on March 28, a little less than two weeks from now. You can pre-order a copy at any major bookseller and submit your proof of purchase here to receive some pre-order swag! I need to get on that myself. 😛
