Waiting On…PAWN by Aimee Carter

Ooh, this one sounds good! There’s a strong Man in the Iron Mask vibe, especially with the cover and the eye peering through the metal maze. I’m curious to see how it plays out — this could be a really good rebellion story with mystery and romance. What do you think?

YA Science Fiction
304 pages, hardcover
Expected publication: November 26, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen


For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.

Waiting on is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  1. Wow. This sounds AWESOME Mary! Definitely adding it to the list. Harlequin Teen has a rather epic fall/winter lineup. SO EXCITED!

  2. Ooh I love that cover! I didn’t notice the eye peeking out until you mentioned it. I love Aimee’s Goddess series, and this sounds like such a different type of story, I’m excited to read it!
