Today, our Waiting on Wednesday pick is a book that I've been dying to read since reading the sales announcement in Publisher's Weekly. After all, how often do you hear a protagonist being described as "Kate Middletone-esque"?
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a meme that allows book bloggers to talk about which titles they're most looking forward to!
Paperback, 320 pages
Expected publication: February 11th 2014 by HarperTeen
Emrys—a fiery, red-headed Fae—always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city’s draining technology, until she’s sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn’t any normal assignment—she’s sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain’s notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be King. The prince’s careless ways and royal blood make him the irresistible for the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure—Richard is one charge who will put Emrys’s magic and heart to the test.
When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through the London’s magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard’s life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love.
What a fantastic synopsis, right? Magic, fae, royalty and intrigue, all set in (what sounds like) modern London. I can't wait!
All That Glows comes out from HarperTeen on February 11th!
