"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My chosen upcoming release is:
The Oathbreaker's Shadow
Series: The Knots Sequence #1
Release Date: 6th June 2013
Publisher: Random House Childrens
Synopsis: Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.
Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all - not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.
Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.
A gripping YA action-adventure fantasy, the first part of a planned duology.
I cannot wait to read this novel! I've been eagerly anticipating it for at least a year. It just sounds so good! I'm hoping to get my hands on a proof copy soon! It just sounds so good, doesn't it? The whole idea is so unique and I'm so excited for it!
