Waiting On Wednesday #59 – Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

Wednesday, January 17, 2018
is a weekly event originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

For whatever reason Jill is not blogging since August 2016 but her meme is still going on. Hope everything is ok and she will be back soon! Until then, I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.



It was on Twitter, when the author revealed the cover of her book, that I got aware of this novel. I was fascinated by the design and a few days ago I finally pre-ordered it. Though I have to admit, that the summary sounds very similar to another book I´ve read the past year; I am still looking forward to it. Maybe it´s only me and my sometimes poor memory, or I am mixing up some books. Anyway, I do hope it turns out to be a reading pleasure for me....




                           
Ash Princess
Author Laura Sebastian
Publishing Date April 24, 2018
Publisher Delacorte Press
Format Hardcover

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. On that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia´s family, her land, and her name. Theo was crowned Ash Princess – a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisoner. For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own palace. She´s endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by burying the girl she was deep inside. Then, one night, The Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword. And power isn´t always won on the battlefield. For ten years, the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved. That all ends here.



Happy reading & waiting on

    1. Looks like it. Something I usually don´t like and what keeps me from reading a book while the hype is going on. Well, well ... Thanks for stopping by.

  5. What a lovely cover! I can see the immediate draw to it. And it sounds like it will be a good one. The story line does sound a bit familiar but I couldn't tell you why. I still think I want to read this one though.

    1. I thought that too, when I read the summary at first. But I can´t tell which book it was that had the same plot. Though the name is dancing on my tongue - I am not able to catch it *lol* Thanks for your visit.
