Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we can rant and gush about what upcoming releases we are impatiently waiting for.

My pick for this week is:

The Oathbreaker’s Shadow
by: Amy McCulloch

To be published: June 4th, 2013


Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.

Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all—not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.

Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.

A gripping YA action-adventure fantasy, the first part of a planned duology.

I must admit that this is not the typical “pretty cover” I go for, but the blurb has me completely wrapped around it’s non-existent fingers. I have so many questions and I need this book in my hands like now so I can have them answered!

What are you impatiently waiting for?
