Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Basically, I pick a book I'm excited about that's coming out sometime soon.

Troubled Waters by Sharon Shinn

Publisher: Ace Hardcover
Release Date: October 5, 2010

Summary: Zoe Ardelay receives astonishing and unwelcome news: she has been chosen to become the king’s fifth wife. Forced to go to the royal city, she manages to slip away and hide on the shores of the mighty river.

It’s there that Zoe realizes she is a coru prime ruled by the elemental sign of water. She must return to the palace, not as an unwilling bride for the king, but a woman with power in her own right. But as Zoe unlocks more of the mysteries of her blood — and the secrets of the royal family — she must decide how to use her great power to rise above the deceptions and intrigue of the royal court.

I've never actually read a Sharon Shinn book, but I've heard lots of wonderful things about her, and I've been on a mega fantasy kick lately, and this looks amazing! I'm glad that it's coming out so soon! :-)

What are you waiting on this week?

Looks gorgeous! And yay fantasy books. I'm having a wander back in that directions after all the dystopian stuff.

Wonderful choice! This goes straight onto my wish-list.

I've never read anything by Sharon Shinn either but I recently read a wonderful review of one of her fantasy series over at Angieville :)
