Waiting on Wednesday: Promise of Shadows
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
Series: 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?
