Waiting on Wednesday!


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

If you follow me on Twitter (and you should) you have probably seen me talk about this book already. I have called it "the book my heart wants to read," you know, because I'm creepy like that. 

 A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

AHHHHH! I need it. I want it. I MUST HAVE IT.
 We all know that fantasy is my thing. When knights, warriors, magic, and destiny combine I pretty much have a mini spasm and this one is proving to last for months. 

Add Snow Like Ashes to your Goodreads here and prepare for October 14th when the magic will be released for us all.

YES! I featured this book as my WoW pick a few weeks ago as well! It sounds freaking brilliant, like you said: fantasy, knights, magic, warriors and destiny sound like exactly what The Doctor ordered ;-) I hope we can both get our hands on it soon! Awesome pick ^^
