Waiting On Wednesday (20)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"The Princess in the Opal Mask" by Jenny Lundquist

This book is set to be released October 22nd, 2013. It is the first book in The Princess in the Opal Mask series.

Every Fairy-Tale Ending Has a Price...

Orphaned as a child in the crumbling village of Tulan, Elara is determined to learn her true identity, even if it means wielding a dagger. Meanwhile, in Galandria's royal capital, Princess Wilha stands out as someone to either worship or fear. Though no one knows why the king has always made her conceal her face--including Wilha herself.

When an assassination attempt threatens the peace of neighboring kingdoms, Elara and Wilha are brought face to face... with a chance at claiming new identities. However, with dark revelations now surfacing, both girls will need to decide if brighter futures are with the binding risks.

I have to admit, the thing that peaked my interest in this book was the beautiful cover. The font and the colorful mask are breath-taking. Then I read the synopsis. It sounds like an interesting high fantasy read and since I have always been in love with fairy tales, this was ideal for me. Interestingly enough, I do believe this may be a retelling of the Prince and the Pauper (educated guess, of course).

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
