Does this chick not look like she can kick some serious ass? I know I wouldn’t want to meet her in a dark alley. Heather Brewer, best known for her Vladimir Todd series, looks to be bringing readers a fantastic new storyline with a female protagonist who can hold her own with just about anyone. Squee! Love a good urban fantasy.
The cover’s kind of set up like many urban fantasies out there and I like how fierce she looks, with her sword, chain-mail face guard, and leather arm band. And the title really stands out in glowing red and gold letters. A little busy, but I can work with it.
What’s worse than being blackmailed to attend a hidden school where you’re treated like a second-class citizen? How about nearly getting eaten by a monster when you arrive? Or learning that your soulmate was killed in a centuries-old secret war? And then there’s the evil king who’s determined to rule the world unless you can stop him…
Meet Kaya, a young woman with the power to heal and the determination to fight. But struggle as she will, she remains tied to three very different men: a hero who has forsaken glory, a tyrannical ruler who wants to use Kaya, and a warrior who’s stolen her heart. Kaya learns the hard way that some ties can’t be broken…and blood is the strongest bond of all.
So, what are you waiting on?
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
