Waiting on Wednesday: The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

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

Goodreads Summary

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.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla's problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies-a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

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!

    My Waiting on Wednesday:
    I Would Kill For This Book (WOW #6) @ My Little Corner For Books

    1. I know right? I can't even...Aaaaahh *screaming in outrage*

  2. The gorgeous cover does make one stare at the screen! xD Adding it to my never-ending TBR list.

    1. Tell me about it! I don't even think I'll be able to read half of the books on my TBR! Though sometimes I like to dream that I'll become immortal and have all the time in the world. Hey, it could happen....

    2. Haha, I see! I actually meant that as a to-be-bought list. I don't own that many TBR books as many readers do, but I have A LOT of books on my to-be-bought list!

  3. Great choice! ^_^ I'm waiting on this book too! I just get entranced by that cover since it's so unique and the premise makes it all the more interesting. I hope we both love the book :)
