Waiting on Wednesday (117): The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine #yalit #WoW

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire #1)
C.J. Redwine
Publisher: Balzer + Bray (HarperCollins)
Release Date: February 23, 2016

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

It's a fairy tale retelling - what more could I ask for? Redwine has been on my TBR for ages, so this is as good of a place to start as any.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I featured this one a few weeks ago and am still wanting it more than ever. I think that is one of the best covers this year. Hope we both enjoy it!

    1. I love the cover! I can't believe I missed the reveal. I just happened upon it when I was cruising my TBR on Goodreads. :-)

  2. I saw this one a lot yesterday on TTT. Must check into it. My WoW

    1. I didn't do any cruising yesterday for TTT, but I need to remedy that. Those are some of my favorite books!

  3. Oooo, I like that cover and the premise is interesting.
