Waiting on Wednesday



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.


You guys have you seen the spring catalog for Harper? It is fabulous and there are so many books off of it I want and this is just one of many. My poor eyes, I see lots of reading in my future but hey, that isn't anything new right? Thankfully I do have a copy of this so I can get a jump on my reading but doesn't it look fabulous? That cover! That synopsis. *sigh* I hope it pans out. 



Book Description:

Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.

But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can’t decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.


As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.




So what do you think, interested or no?

  1. I wouldn't call feeling what other people feel a gift. The thought alone gives me the creeps. But the book sounds very interesting and I'm super excited about is as well.

    1. I agree Maja, too many emotions and think of all the anger and hate you would feel all the time from others. :(
