Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book releases we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr
Release Date: 1st March by HarperCollins
“Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal.
Her guilt lies in her DNA. Lily is half human, half fae, and since the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humans and faeries. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of the fae courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir—a death that was the fault of reckless humans.
Lily’s father has shielded her from the repercussions of her ancestry, but when she’s sent to the prestigious St. Columba’s school, she’s delivered straight into the arms of a fae sleeper cell –the Black Diamonds.
Mysterious, glamorous, and constantly at odds, the Diamonds are planted in the human world as the sons and daughters of the most influential families, and tasked with destroying it from within. Against her will, Lilywhite’s been chosen to join them … and even the romantic attention of the fae rock singer Creed Morrison isn’t enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the familiar world she knows.
Melissa Marr returns to faery in a dramatic story of the precarious space between two worlds and the people who must thrive there.”
I loved Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchnage (I’m still reading the rest of the series) and i love faery tales so this seems to be a match made in heaven. I like the idea of mixing the human and fae interactions and am very intereseted to see what the humans defences are against the fae and what they can actually do. I want to learn more about Lilywhite and this sleeper cell of faeries that she will come into contact with. Not too long till we can find out more 🙂
What are your picks for this week?
Thanks for reading,
