Waiting on Wednesday - August 3rd

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from, Breaking The Spine

This week I’m waiting on,
by Paula Brandon
Available: October ’11


On the Veiled Isles, ominous signs are apparent to those with the talent to read them. The polarity of magic is wavering at its source, heralding a vast upheaval poised to alter the very balance of nature. Blissfully unaware of the cataclysmic events to come, Jianna Belandor, the beautiful, privileged daughter of a powerful Faerlonnish overlord, has only one concern: the journey to meet her prospective husband.  But revolution is stirring as her own conquered people rise up against their oppressors, and Jianna is kidnapped and held captive at a rebel stronghold, insurance against what are perceived as her father’s crimes. 

The resistance movement opens Jianna’s eyes―and her heart. Despite her belief in her father’s innocence, she is fascinated by the bold and charming nomadic physician and rebel sympathizer, Falaste Rione—who offers Jianna her only sanctuary in a cold and calculating web of intrigue. As plague and chaos grip the land, Jianna is pushed to the limits of her courage and resourcefulness, while virulent enemies discover that alliance is their only hope to save the human race.

Why I’m waiting on this book? I’m a sucker for anything historical especially if fantasy elements are involved :) The Traitor’s Daughter sounds like it will be a great mix of both (& maybe a little romance too).

What are you waiting on this week?

P.S Blogger is being especially difficult for some reason. I apologize if my links aren’t working correctly or if my post looks a little wonky.
