~Waiting on Wednesday~ The Traitor Prince (Ravenspire #3)

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

The Traitor Prince (Ravenspire #3) by C.J. Redwine
Out:  2/13

From Goodreads:
                Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom.  But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

                After barely escaping the imposter’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison.  The only way to gain an audience with the king—and reveal Javan’s identity—is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament.  But winning is much harder than acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even the warden herself.

                The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check.  Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive—but she has dangerous secrets.
               
                Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight the deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan.  If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.

Why I’m Waiting:
                I’m a love this authors other books and I have enjoyed the other books in the series thus far so this is a no brainer for me to buy!  Plus it has the whole gladiator type vibe which I’m digging while also reminding me of an old episode of Wishbone.


                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.
