Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.
A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.

Waiting on Wednesday
Why We’re Waiting
I’d seen this book around before but I was really excited for it when I went to TLA for a day in April. When I first got to TLA they had a huge line going for the ARC. Sadly, I wasn’t able to get in the line because I’d only just gotten there. But, that moment inspired me to go look at what the big deal was with this book.
I’m a sucker for magic and fantasies. If it’s done right, man you’ve got me. This one sounds awesome. I can’t wait to see how this book works with everything spanning so many years. It reminds me a little of Throne of Glass in that there’s magic and assassins and stuff. I always enjoy books that go over several years. There’s so much you can do with this premise. I can’t wait to see what Legrand is going to do with it!
So, what book are YOU waiting for this week?
