Waiting on Wednesday: Promise of Shadows

September 11, 2013

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

Justina Ireland is an author I have not read before but Promise of Shadow sounds really good. Plus the first line on the authors website is

“My name is Justina. I write books about dangerous girls and the boys who dig them.”

Pity March 2014 is so far away 🙂

Promise of Shadows – Justina Ireland

Promise of Shadows
Genre: YA Fantasy
Published: March 11th, 2014
Links: Goodreads   Amazon

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.

Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.

But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?

    i’m very excited for this book too! i like the sound of it and the cover design is great! i’m really liking the cover design trend of using the title’s letters in a blown up, fancy way (also like on the cover of between the devil and the deep blue sea).

    hope you can stop by my WoW.
