Waiting on Wednesday 8-22-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme/event/blog hop hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine, so be sure to check back there for more blogs participating each week. :) It allows us to spotlight, or drool over an up-coming release we really can't wait to get our hands on.

My pick this week is:

Release date: December 11th, 2012

I found this only the other day, and went WOW. It's been a while since I've found a good high fantasy read. I think the last one may have been Finnikin of the Rock? Anyway, it looks excellent, or at least promising! Doesn't it? And has a cover full of mystery, the beginning of a series, it looks like. Totally on my wishlist now. And here is the Goodreads summary: 

In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:

Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.

Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword...

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

Anybody waiting for it like me? The author is a pen name for Michelle Rowen, who has written other books in another genre, so I think she is changing it for that reason. So, only a few months to wait!
