Waiting on Wednesday

 By: Cayla Kluver 
Release Date: June, 2011
Published by: Harlequin Teen

The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon of the nighttime sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, on the same night the Kingdom of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack.
Across the land of Hytanica, under the shadow of the crimson moon, infant boys continued to vanish. Not until the blood had faded from the sky did the disappearances stop and the bodies of the murdered infants were found outside the gates of the city, a final word from the greatest enemy Hytanica had ever known. For the next sixteen years, peace reigned, but one mystery remained unsolved. The Cokyrians had abducted forty-nine newborns, but returned only forty-eight bodies.
Now, as seventeen-year-old Princess Alera of Hytanica is besieged from all sides by suitors vying for the Throne, a teenage Cokyrian boy, Narian, is encountered within the walls of her Kingdom, a boy who will show Alera a world where women serve a purpose and not just a husband. As Narian helps Alera find her voice, she struggles against an arranged marriage that will shatter the life she has scarcely begun to live. And when Narian’s shocking past is uncovered, and war with Cokyri looms once more, he must fight to defy a fate ordained at his birth.

Okay, I’m kind of cheating here because I’ve already read a version of this book but I LOVED it and it has a smexy new cover. Also, Cayla is a Wisconsin girl and we all know how awesome they are! I’m thrilled that Harlequin Teen picked this one up. They publis such fabulous books. Plus I will FINALLY get to read book tow! I’ve only been waiting about THREE YEARS πŸ˜‰

    Certainly sounds like a thrilling story…lots of bloodshed there in just the synopsis though. O_O Not certain the cover is working for me as a whole, but I like how the title is woven into the scroll work there. Nice pick.

    I have this on my Kindle from when it was free like two years ago and forgot all about it as I kept getting other books. Now that I’ve been reminded of it I’m definitely gonna have to make time for it. Good choice!

    That’s always the downside about self-published/indie-published books getting picked up by traditional publishers. The wait.

    That happened to me recently with a different series.

    But, this book does look amazing, and Cayla Kluver is such an awesome person.
