Waiting on Wednesday (21) The King Slayer

Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

An action-packed and suspenseful sequel to The Witch Hunter, perfect for fans of Graceling and the
Grisha Trilogy.

"I think, in time, you'll either be my greatest mistake or my greatest victory."

Former witch hunter Elizabeth Grey is hiding within the magically protected village of Harrow, evading the price put on her head by Lord Blackwell, the usurper king of Anglia. Their last encounter left Blackwell ruined, but his thirst for power grows stronger every day. He's readying for a war against those who would resist his rule--namely Elizabeth and the witches and wizards she now calls her allies.

Having lost her stigma, a magical source of protection and healing, Elizabeth's strength is tested both physically and emotionally. War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves.

"[Filled] with everything a good fantasy book needs: swords, poison, black magic, and betrayal."--April Tucholke, author ofBetween the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, on The Witch Hunter

Why am I waiting?

The Witch Hunter is the novel that brought me back to trying out fantasy. I had had a horrible spell of some really bad ones and was about to give up on the genre. The Witch Hunter brought me back in full force. I need to know what happened to Elizabeth.
