Me on Waiting on Wednesday (77)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Falling Kingdoms
Author: Morgan Rhodes (Michelle Rowen)
Release Date: December 11, 2012
Publisher: Razorbill (Penguin imprint)

From Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Cleo has grown up in luxury, the royal heiress to a prosperous kingdom. But beneath her nation’s seemingly peaceful surface lies dangerous unrest. Whispers of war are growing ever louder—intensified by a murderous incident for which Cleo’s betrothed, Aron, is accused.

Amidst the ongoing intrigue, Cleo has a more desperate mission. She defies her father’s orders and sets off on a secret and perilous journey into a neighboring country, seeking a magic long thought to be mythical. If it’s real, it could be the cure that heals her ailing sister. If it’s only legend, Cleo will be stranded in a kingdom that has just declared war on her own.

This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with unforgettable characters and vibrantly imagined magic. Falling Kingdoms is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Cinda Williams Chima, and George R.R. Martin.

Another upcoming book by a Canadian author. And another December release. *sigh* Why must we wait so long?

I don't usually read a lot of fantasy, but this sounds interesting. I rather like books with magic. And I'm a fan of Michelle's. :)
