Can't Wait Wednesday (93)



Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  






FROM GOODREADS:
A Great Winged One will soon arise and cast his fearsome shadow upon the land. And just as Night slays Day, and Day slays Night, so also shall another Black Witch rise to meet him, her powers vast beyond imagining.

So foretells the greatest prophecy of the Gardnerian mages. Carnissa Gardner, the last prophesied Black Witch, drove back the enemy forces and saved her people during the Realm War. Now a new evil is on the horizon, and her granddaughter, Elloren, is believed to be Carnissa’s heir—but while she is the absolute image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above nearly all else.

When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren is eager to join her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University and finally embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother’s legacy. But she soon realizes that the University, which admits all manner of peoples—including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of her people—is an even more treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.


WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I love anything witchy and can't wait to learn more about the world Forest has created.  The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the book is a whopping 608 pages so I really hope it's awesome!

What book can't you wait for this week?

    1. I know, when I saw the page count, I immediately thought back to "Moon Chosen." I'll need all the luck I can get.

  2. Erk...the page count alone is frightening! Most of my reads are around 200-250 mostly!

    1. I really love larger books but have to admit, the past few I've read in that category haven't been all that spectacular.

  3. I don't read a ton of witch stories, especially not that long, but I love that cover, and I hope you get it soon.

  4. I love stories about witches too, so great choice! That is longer than I usually read, since I don't read very fast, but I may check it out:-)

  11. I can't resist anything "witchy" either, and this looks like a good one. Sounds like a better "Discovery of Witches" to me :)

    1. I never read "Discovery of Witches" even though I've wanted to for some time.

  12. Carnissa sounds AMAZING! And I like it's focused on her and not a romance -- not yet anyway! ;)

    1. Yea, I expect some romance but it doesn't sound like it will be too heavy. Then again I could be wrong and maybe there won't be much at all.

  13. AWESOME pick, Barb!! I love a good witchy story myself, from time to time. This one has the word "riveting" all over it! The plot sure is unique, too! I had not heard of this novel, so thanks for featuring it! Heading over to Goodreads to add it!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my "Can't Wait Wednesday" post!! Hope you're having a GREAT week!! <3 <3 :) :)
