is a weekly event that was 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.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

I saw this book for the first time over at Tressa´s blog Wishful Endings and was immediately hooked by the cover. It looks dark and yet beautiful with the silver sword, the gold, and the dark background. And after reading the blurb I was literally fascinated. It sounds sooooooo good. And promises even more. It will be my first Robin LaFevers book, and I am already looking for the other books of her series, though I got told that this one is the first of a new dilogy written by the author.

Courting Darkness Duology #1

When Sybella accompanies the Duchess of Brittany to France, she expects trouble, but she isn´t expecting a deadly trap. Surrounded by enemies both known and unknown, Sybella searches for the undercover assassins from the convent of St. Mortain who were placed in the French court years ago. Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she no longer knows who she is or what she´s supposed to be fighting for. When she discovers a hidden prisoner who may be of importance, she takes matters into her own hands. As these two worlds collide, the fate of the Duchess, Brittany, and everything Sybella and Genevieve have come to love hangs in the balance.
