Waiting on Wednesday: April 22, 2015

21414439Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) by Susan Dennard 
Release Date – January 2016 from Tor

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery,” a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

LET’S JUST STARE AT THAT COVER FOR A SECOND….OK but I cannot express how excited I am for this book! I LOVED Susan’s other series Something Strange and Deadly and always want more words from Susan. 2016 is far away but I know it will be worth it for this story.


 

22836576The Death Code (The Murder Complex #2) by Lindsay Cummings
Release Date – May 26, 2015 by Greenwillow Books

With short, fast-paced, alternating point-of-view chapters, The Death Code starts several weeks after The Murder Complex ended. Zephyr keeps the secret about Meadow close—that if she dies, The Murder Complex will be destroyed, too. Meadow, desperate to find her brother, father, and little sister, is determined to fearlessly fight to the end, even if it means sacrificing herself and her friends, new and old. The Death Code introduces a memorable cast of secondary characters and delivers a vivid and scary thrill ride read.

I thought The Death Code was a good choice for my first Waiting on Wednesday post, considering I’m very impatiently waiting on this book to be in my hands. It’s original release date would have been just a few days away, but now we must wait just one more month. I can do it… I think. I just need more Zephyr James in my life, that’s all. I’m so excited!
