Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, spotlighting releases we (or rather, in this case, Sophia) are waiting for eagerly.
Author: Amy Tintera
Series: Ruined #1
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Coming out May 3, 2016 by HarperTeen
Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.
But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.
In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.
Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.
In all honesty, Ruined just sounds like one of those revenge books that doesn’t really sound like it’s going to go well. But at the same time… this sounds just as awesome because a girl infiltrates the royal family through “deception and murder.”
Plus, that cover is simplistic and gorgeous all in one.
And now… over to you: what book are you waiting to release? Link me up and I’ll try my best to drop by (although with senior year closing down, it’s not too likely to happen, so I apologize in advance)! 🙂
