Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings.  This week I am actually playing by the rules for once and picking a book not yet released.  My pick is Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope.  Song of Blood & Stone was originally self-published and St. Martin’s Press picked it up for re-publication in hardcover.  I have an advance topic, and I’m really excited to pick this one up in the near future.

Orphaned and alone, Jasminda lives in a land where cold whispers of invasion and war linger on the wind. Jasminda herself is an outcast in her homeland of Elsira, where her gift of Earthsong is feared. When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive–an injured spy who threatens to steal her heart. 

Jack’s mission behind enemy lines to prove that the Mantle between Elsira and Lagrimar is about to fall nearly cost him his life, but he is saved by the healing Song of a mysterious young woman. Now he must do whatever it takes to save Elsira and its people from the True Father and he needs Jasminda’s Earthsong to do it. They escape their vicious captors and together embark on a perilous journey to save Elsira and to uncover the secrets of The Queen Who Sleeps. 

Thrust into a hostile society, Jasminda and Jack must rely on one another even as secrets jeopardize their bond. As an ancient evil gains power, Jasminda races to unlock a mystery that promises salvation. 

The fates of two nations hang in the balance as Jasminda and Jack must choose between love and duty to fulfill their destinies and end the war.

Preorder Song of Blood & Stone here.  Song of Blood & Stone comes out on May 1.

      I’m committed! I am actually doing a good job of not requesting WAY TOO MANY ARCs for once. Song of Blood & Stone is the next ARC I have. I requested two other books that come out in later in May, but I don’t even have those yet.
