Waiting on Wednesday #10

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal

The Kingdom of Little WoundsSummary (via Goodreads):
A young seamstress and a royal nursemaid find themselves at the center of an epic power struggle in this stunning young-adult debut.

On the eve of Princess Sophia’s wedding, the Scandinavian city of Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous display of riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and sweet spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness creeps through the palace halls. A mysterious illness plagues the royal family, threatening the lives of the throne’s heirs, and a courtier’s wolfish hunger for the king’s favors sets a devious plot in motion.

Here in the palace at Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem — and when a single errant prick of a needle sets off a series of events that will alter the course of history, the fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably intertwined with that of mad Queen Isabel. As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue, power-lust, and deception, Ava and Midi must carve out their own survival any way they can.

Why am I eagerly waiting for The Kingdom of Little Wounds?
First off that name…it is epic. I love the cover art beautiful yet so creepy. This description just gives me chills, “Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness creeps through the palace halls.” And I simply adore palace intrigue.

The Kingdom of Little Wounds is expected to release October 8th 2013 from Candlewick
