Waiting on Wednesday #15

New WoWWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by by Breaking the Spine @ breakingthespine.blogspot.com

My pick this week is….

thestoryspinnerwow15The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

Genre: Young Adult Epic Fantasy

Release Date: March 3,2015

Summery from Amazon:

Drama and danger abound in this fantasy realm where dukes play a game for the throne, magical warriors race to find the missing heir, and romance blossoms where it is least expected.

In a world where dukes plot their way to the throne, a Performer’s life can get tricky. And in Johanna Von Arlo’s case, it can be fatal. Expelled from her troupe after her father’s death, Johanna is forced to work for the handsome Lord Rafael DeSilva. Too bad they don’t get along. But while Johanna’s father’s death was deemed an accident, the Keepers aren’t so sure.

The Keepers, a race of people with magical abilities, are on a quest to find the princess—the same princess who is supposed to be dead and whose throne the dukes are fighting over. But they aren’t the only ones looking for her. And in the wake of their search, murdered girls keep turning up—girls who look exactly like the princess, and exactly like Johanna.

With dukes, Keepers, and a killer all after the princess, Johanna finds herself caught up in political machinations for the throne, threats on her life, and an unexpected romance that could change everything.

Why I am excited

I love epic/high fantasy and can’t wait to find out what kind of special powers these Keepers have.  I love a relationship when the hero and heroine meet and don’t get along and then fall in love. I have always had a thing for the finding the lost prince or princess storyline. I know it’s not an original storyline but I always loved these stories sense I was a kid. The fantasy of finding out you are a long lost princess and destined to save a kingdom from great evil has always been a dream of mine. But I would be a rebel princess of course.

What is your pick this week?

Happy Reading,

Nicole The Reading Rebel
