Waiting on Wednesday #172

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


Goodreads Description:

History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?

Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.

As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.

Hardcover, 464 pages
Expected publication: April 28th 2015 by Scholastic Press

I very much like the cover for this book. So pretty! And just all kinds of awesome looking. I also like the summary. It feels like this book can either be really amazing or really bad. Which is usually how all books are for me, hah. But I have hopes for this book. So I'm crossing all my fingers it will be awesome :D
What are you waiting for on this ruined Wednesday?

  10. Just heard about this one the other day, but I'm practically foaming at the mouth for it.

  11. YES so incredibly excited for this one. Love Sharon Cameron's writing---her debut series was amazing.

  12. Yeah, this one does look like it has Awesome-potential. It sounds different from all the other dystopian premises that I've come across lately, and I'm really curious about this cat-and-mouse game. I'm crossing my fingers that it lives up to expectations!
