~Waiting on Wednesday~ The Glass Spare

                “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 Glass Spare (The Glass Spare #1) by Lauren DeStefano
Out: 10/24          

From Goodreads:
                A banished princess.
                A deadly curse.
                A kingdom at war.

                Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows.  Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father—whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war—Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance.

                Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret.  Her touch turns people into gemstone.  At first Wil is horrified—but as she tests its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability.  When it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the trust and a cure.

                But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.

                With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?

Why I’m Waiting:
                I think this one sounds interesting.  It reminds me a bit of the Midas touch but to me gemstones are much prettier.  I’m curious to see where this one will go. 

                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.

  4. This does sound pretty cool! I got an ARC but I'm not sure I'll have time to read it before it publishes - though there is still plenty of time. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Eve. =)
