Waiting on Wednesday - Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Reign of Shadows
by Sophie Jordan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 304
Format: Hardcover
Release Date: February 9th, 2016
Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.

But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized. With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Why I'm Anticipating This Book:

In my early book blogging days I fell in love with Sophie's Firelight series (Firelight, Vanish and Hidden). It's a YA series that focuses on a young teen girl who also happens to be a draki, hidden from the world with others like herself. Sophie pulled me into this world and I couldn't resist following her every release. From the Uninvited series and Foreplay Chronicles, to the Debutante Files and Forgotten Princesses series, I found myself thoroughly enjoying everything she's written. With the upcoming release of Reign of Shadows, I find myself highly anticipating Sophie's high fantasy adventure. Mysterious characters, murder, and promising high stakes - I'm very eager for February's arrival and absolutely cannot wait to read Reign of Shadows and share my thoughts with everyone.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Happy Reading,
Wendy (Cupcake Queen)
