Waiting on Wednesday - Take the Key and Lock Her Up




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is


Summary (by Goodreads)

THE PRINCESS IS DEAD.
LONG LIVE THE PRINCESS.


Centuries ago, the royal family of Adria was killed . . . or so everyone thought.
Now Grace Blakely knows the truth:

There was one survivor, and that survivor’s blood runs through her veins. This simple fact could cause a revolution — which is why some people will stop at nothing to keep it from coming to light.

There is only one way for Grace to save herself, save her family, and save the boy she loves. She must outmaneuver her foes, cut through the web of lies that has surrounded her for years, and go back to the source of all her troubles, despite the risk.

If she wins, she will inherit a throne.

And if she loses, she will inherit the fate of all the dead princesses who came before her.
 

So confession time....I started to read the first Embassy Row novel and nearly fell asleep. It has been on my reader, half-read for years.  BUT now that I've read the summary for Book 3, I am keenly interested in discovering what the heck I missed out on...although, on the other hand, it does sound vaguely similar to a Barbie movie I watched last month with my daughter....

Summary (by Goodreads)

An epic clash between gods and mortals threatens to tear Mytica apart . . . and prove that not even the purest of love stands a chance against the strongest of magic.

MAGNUS and CLEO are forced to test the strength of their love when Gaius returns to Mytica claiming he's no longer the King of Blood but a changed man seeking redemption.

LUCIA, pregnant with the child of a Watcher, has escaped the clutches of the unhinged fire god. Her powers are dwindling as she goes forth to fulfill a prophecy that will keep her baby safe . . . but could mean her demise.

JONAS treks back to Mytica with a plan to overtake Amara, but fate takes hold when he runs into the beautiful Princess Lucia and joins her on her perilous journey.

AMARA has taken the Mytican throne, but with no way to unleash the water magic trapped within her stolen crystal, she'll never be able to seize glory and get sweet revenge.

And what kind of darkness will descend--and who will be safe--after Prince Ashur reveals the dangerous price he paid to cheat death?
 

Seriously? If you have not already started reading this series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??  In my bookie world this was an EPIC series. Warring kingdoms, magic, ancient beings, back-stabbing, death, unlikely foes and alliances. Lots and lots of characters to love and hate. Its like Game of Thrones with easier to pronounce characters!  Start with Book #1 though....and expect to call in sick while you read because this is Book 5.
