Waiting on Wednesday- March 18, 2009

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Thorn Queen
by Richelle Mead
Publication Release Date: August 2009

Eugenie Markham is a shaman for hire, paid to bind and banish creatures from the Otherworld. But after her last battle, she’s also become queen of the Thorn Land. It’s hardly an envious life, not with her kingdom in tatters, her love life in chaos, and Eugenie eager to avoid the prophecy about her firstborn destroying mankind. And now young girls are disappearing from the Otherworld, and no one—except Eugenie—seems willing to find out why.

Eugenie has spilled plenty of fey blood in her time, but this enemy is shrewd, subtle, and nursing a very personal grudge. And the men in her life aren't making things any easier. Her boyfriend, Kiyo, is preoccupied with his pregnant ex, and sexy fey king Dorian always poses a dangerous distraction. With or without their help, Eugenie must venture deep into the Otherworld and trust in an unpredictable power she can barely control. Reluctant queen or not, Eugenie has sworn to do her duty—even if it means facing the darkest—and deadliest—side of her nature…


  1. OMG i love Richelle Mead! I'm waiting for the cover of Blood Promise to be released so I can showcase that!! I want to read this adult series too cuz she rocks!

  2. The cover caught my eye - is that you on the cover? ;) Just kidding! (Your pic is way prettier than that!) :) Although I did do a double take because I glanced at your profile picture and the cover at the same time.
