Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick for this week’s “can’t wait to read” is
(Legacy of Orisha #1)
Expected Publication – March 6, 2018 by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers
Genre(s): Young Adult, Fantasy
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.
This book has been receiving so many great reviews and why wouldn’t it!?!? Magic, Ruthless Kings, Rogue Princess, Struggle for Power, Vengeful Spirits and a hint of Romance — for the enemy… Doesn’t get any better than that!!!
