Waiting on Wednesday #195

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on.....
Dark of the West by Joanna Hathaway 
Releases on: May 8th 2018
He was raised in revolution. She was raised in a palace. Can their love stop a war? Code Name Verity meets The Winner's Curse in Joanna Hathaway's Dark of the West, a breathtaking YA fantasy debut.

Aurelia Isendare is a princess of a small kingdom in the North, raised in privilege but shielded from politics as her brother prepares to step up to the throne. Halfway around the world, Athan Dakar, the youngest son of a ruthless general, is a fighter pilot longing for a life away from the front lines. When Athan’s mother is shot and killed, his father is convinced it’s the work of his old rival, the Queen of Etania—Aurelia’s mother. Determined to avenge his wife’s murder, he devises a plot to overthrow the Queen, a plot which sends Athan undercover to Etania to gain intel from her children.

Athan’s mission becomes complicated when he finds himself falling for the girl he’s been tasked with spying upon. Aurelia feels the same attraction, all the while desperately seeking to stop the war threatening to break between the Southern territory and the old Northern kingdoms that control it—a war in which Athan’s father is determined to play a role. As diplomatic ties manage to just barely hold, the two teens struggle to remain loyal to their families and each other as they learn that war is not as black and white as they’ve been raised to believe.

I. Am. In. Love.....seriously, all I had to hear was The Winner's Curse and I'm already sold on this novel. Everything from the cover to the description has me entranced to read this novel. It sounds like just the kind of fantasy novels I adore and I can't wait to read it as soon as it comes out.

What do you think of Dark of the West? Is it something you wish to read?
And what are you waiting on this week?

  1. I remember seeing the cover reveal last week! I wasn't too impressed with it, bit honestly it is what is inside that matters. The story sounds good, and with a Winner's Curse comparison, that's even better. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a great day. =)
