Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she's not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.
When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can't keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser's warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn't expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who's been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart's sister, Cress.
Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she's willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she's willing to sacrifice to become queen.

Look at that gorgeous cover. Ahhh. I love it so. And oh my gosh, that summary is amazing. I must admit that I just recently read all of it, because I knew I wouldn't be able to wait if I knew all the details of the book. Hmph. And this was true. Because now I want this book so, so badly. It sounds amazing. And epic. And full of romance, I hope. Hoping that it will all end well. Fingers crossed. Hope to get to read it early.
What are you waiting for on this revengeful Wednesday?
