Waiting on Wednesday – Week 104

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight on upcoming reads that I'm DYING to get my hands on!
But first...

I'm officially 18 years old!!

...and continuing on with today's post...

This week's WoW is:
Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster

Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire’s capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could’ve imagined. More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.

Mara knew her life in the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?

Empire of Shadows will take readers on a spellbinding journey into the world Miriam Forster first introduced in City of a Thousand Dolls—a world with a divided society, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and deeply laid conspiracies.

I LOVED City of a Thousand Dolls (my review here)– I was lucky enough that the author sent a copy for review and THEN I won a signed copy of it to keep! While I'm sad that it won't be the same main characters in this one, I love the world-building in this series and excited to see some potential character crossovers featured :D Can't wait!

What are you waiting on?
