I’ve heard about this book, but didn’t pay much attention since I’m super behind of my book reviews. Blame my blasted work for that. Anyway, I’ve marked this book on my Want-To-Read list in Goodreads and just earlier, I’ve come to realized that this is something I should be fangirling about.
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
Expected publication would be on the 14th of October 2014 by Balzer + Bray and it will be 432 pages on hardcover. Look at that amazing cover. Just looking at it makes me more excited to have my own copy. I want to be wed with it. Ha ha! I really bet there would be a lot of thrilling adventure given the rundown. I’m just wishing that the InstaLove would be written well or I won’t like that part at all. Anyway, a lot of book lovers is anticipating it’s released so I’m joining in. Hooray!
