Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that were eagerly anticipating.
This weeks book that I'm desperate to get my hands on is:
The Sin Eater's Daughter (The Sin Eater's Daughter #1) by Melinda Salisbury
Publication: February 24, 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Epic Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal
A startling, seductive, deliciously dark debut that will shatter your definition of YA fantasy.
16-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she's engaged to the prince, no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn't a member of the court. She's the executioner.
As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch. So each week, she's taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love her. Who could care for a girl with murder in her veins? Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her.
Why I'm desperate for The Sin Eater's Daughter:
Well, apart from the gorgeous cover that totally pulls me in and has me staring at the screen like a weirdo the summary has spiked my interest. I always love girl characters who have awesome powers (though killing with a single touch is probably a crazy power to have but I love it!) and Twylla has that and she's an executioner which I find awesome! I don't know about anyone else but this seems like its going to be amazing and I'm super excited!!! Why can't February come already!
