FROM GOODREADS: An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen.

The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of Súndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.

Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.

So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.

But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother...and her soul.

WHY I'M WAITING:  I enjoyed Shadow Queen much more than I anticipated so when I saw the cover for this one last week, I knew that I immediately put it on my wishlist.  Also, I have always loved Rumpelstiltskin so reading this one is a must!

What are you waiting for this week????


  1. You know what, I don't think i've seen a tale inspired by Rumpelstilskin. Huh. and this one certainly is intriguing! Here's mine:

  2. So I have Shadow Queen on audio but haven't gotten to it yet but seems like I need to before this next one comes up on audio. :)

  3. I never would have looked twice at this book, because of the cover, but wow does the story sound great!

  4. I haven't read The Shadow Queen, but this one sounds really great. I hope you enjoy it when you get your hands on it.
