"Waiting on" Wednesday #5: Accession

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is: 

by Terah Edun
Publication Date: August 5, 2014


Sixteen-year-old Katherine Thompson wasn’t trained to rule a coven. That was her sister – perfect, beautiful Rose. But when a mysterious plane crash kills off the heir presumptive of the Sandersville coven she has no choice. After stepping in to fill her sister’s shoes, Katherine realizes she didn’t have a clue – faery wars, depressed trolls and angry unicorns are just the beginning.

For centuries, her family has served the high Queens on both sides of the Atlantic but it is a well-known rule that mid-level witches stay away from high-level Queens. But when Katherine’s youngest cousin vanishes without a trace in the Atlanta court and no one wants to investigate, Katherine decides to step into the darkness on her own. She soon discovers that nothing, especially in the Atlanta High Queen’s court, is as it seems.

When she accidentally opens a rift in the search for her cousin, Richard LeCross, the Queen’s warlock, decides that Katherine is more trouble than she’s worth. He determines that this mortal, dangerously close to becoming a High Queen, needs to die. But killing Katherine is easier said than done. For a young woman who’s always believed in right versus wrong, she’s about to go head over heels into the dark side.

So this book looks really good. Like, really, REALLY good. This year I'm participating in five challenges, one of which is the Witches and Witchcraft Challenge. When I came across this future release title I was super excited! The cover is gorgeous, obviously, but the descriptions also sounds amazing (not sure which is most important). I love witches - American Horror Story: Coven, anyone? - so I'm not sure why I'm so behind on these witchy reads...  


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