Waiting on Wednesday (22) ~ A Thief and a Knight

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

What am I waiting on?

Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne
Releasing July 8th, 2014 by Disney-Hyperion

Goodreads description:

Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.

But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he’s persistent—and darkly attractive—and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival—and vengeance—might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives.
 Why am I waiting on it?
This is one of those books that I'm mostly interesting in reading because of the attention its been getting. It just keeps grabbing my eye--I have a feeling I wouldn't want to miss out on this one. It does look pretty darn good.

That's my WoW this week! What's yours?

  4. Ooh, I'm so excited to read this one! I've got an ARC sitting on my shelf looking at me, wanting to be read, and I'm dying to do so. Have you read the prequel novella, Poison Dance? It's awesome! Great pick! :D
