Waiting on Wednesday [21]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Prophecy by Ellen Oh!

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

Wow this sounds AWESOME! Plus the cover? Totally digging it. I know that a lot of people have been commenting that Prophecy sounds like a Graceling copycat but personally I think this sounds a lot better. I wasn't a big Graceling fan anyway. Plus: ASIAN AUTHORS WOOT!!!! I'll definitely be reading this when it comes out from HarperTeen on January 2nd 2013. :D

I was actually lucky enough to get to feature an interview of Ellen Oh during All Things Asian so if you guys want to go read more about her and her writing you should check that out here!

What books are you eagerly anticipating this week? Be sure to leave a comment with a link to your WoW post below so I can check it out!

  1. Oh! I added this to my to-read list last week, I agree it sounds amazing :). The only thing I see this has in common with Graceling is that they are both high fantasy books and the main characters are both female and bad asses.
