Happy Wednesday everyone! In the spirit of trying new things on the blog (see my post on Top Ten Tuesday for more info on that!), I’m now going to be posting regularly for the Waiting on Wednesday memes!
If you’re not familiar, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of it is to highlight upcoming books that you’re excited about, interested in and can’t wait to read!
So, let’s get into my first Waiting on Wednesday post!
Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion #2) by Rosalyn Eves
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers | Release: March 27th, 2018
Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding – and Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.
Anna Arden did not know breaking the Binding would break the world.
Anna thought the Praetheria were on her side, content and grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas’ blood sacrifice to disarm the spell would bring peace, equality, justice. She thought her future looked like a society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor.
But with the Monarchy breathing down her neck and the Praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun.
As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can’t solve everything on her own. Now there’s only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she’d never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.
