Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
I am waiting on:
Title: Promise of Shadows
Author: Justina Ireland
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: March 11, 2014
Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.
Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.
But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?
Why am I waiting?
I have yet to read a book about Harpies, and this one sounds like a good way to start. I loved Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland and loved it. I am sure she is going to do an amazing job with Promise of Shadows. I also like the idea of half-gods, harpies and all the mythology that will go along with it.
What are you waiting on?
