Waiting on Wednesday (10)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: The Rose Throne, by Mette Ivie Harrison (Egmont USA, May 14, 2013).

Ailsbet loves nothing more than music; tall and red-haired, she's impatient with the artifice and ceremony of her father's court. Marissa adores the world of her island home and feels she has much to offer when she finally inherits the throne from her wise, good-tempered father. The trouble is that neither princess has the power--or the magic--to rule alone, and if the kingdoms can be united, which princess will end up ruling the joint land? For both, the only goal would seem to be a strategic marriage to a man who can bring his own brand of power to the throne. But will either girl be able to marry for love? And can either of these two princesses, rivals though they have never met, afford to let the other live?

I have not read anything by this author, though she's been on my list of Books I Want to Read Before I Die for a while now; but this cover keeps jumping out at me, and the description sounds like it would be right up my alley.

  1. I had the chance to read this book in ARC thanks to NetGalley, and despite I didn´t know the author, as you have said, the cover is so appealing!
    This book was what I expected, so all I have to say is that your WoW choiced is amazing.
