Hello there and Happy Wednesday!
Each week I participate in Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that creates a venue for specifically sharing upcoming books that we’re excited about.
Today I’m waiting on The Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist!
Every Fairy-Tale Ending Has a Price. . . .
Orphaned as a child in the crumbling village of Tulan, Elara is determined to learn her true identity, even if it means wielding a dagger. Meanwhile, in Galandria’s royal capital, Princess Wilha stands out as someone to either worship or fear. Though no one knows why the king has always made her conceal her face–including Wilha herself.
When an assassination attempt threatens the peace of neighboring kingdoms, Elara and Wilha are brought face to face . . . with a chance at claiming new identities. However, with dark revelations now surfacing, both girls will need to decide if brighter futures are worth the binding risks.
If you’ve been following BookTasty you’ve probably picked up that I am having a major love affair with fantasy and I want to be a princess. Yes. It’s true. I’m a huge nerd! haha Nerdiness aside, I really want this book in my hands, like right now! Fantasy always floats my bookish boat and The Princess in the Opal Mask sounds like a great fantasy read. Plus, do you see that super ethereal cover? It’s stunning and I can’t take my eyes off of it.
The Princess in the Opal Mask is scheduled for release in only a few short weeks. October 22 to be exact, so we fantasy nerds don’t have long to wait!
