Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Pawn (Blackcoat Rebellion #1) by Aimee Carter (Harlequin Teen):
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.
There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
Admittedly, I was not the biggest fan of Aimee Carter’s Goddess Test series. It wasn’t so much that I didn’t like her writing, though, it was more that I didn’t like how she adapted the mythology. Since this book is entirely her own creation – with no background mythology to throw me off – I’m willing to give her another chance. Plus, this one sounds really intriguing, with an interesting premise. I’m excited to give it a try.
Release Date: November 23, 2013
