Waiting on Wednesday (78)

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Miriam Forster
The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.

Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins.

But Nisha doesn't pay attention to rumors. She's made peace with her life, working as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls.

Until one by one, girls around her start to die.

Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But the City she discovers isn't the one she thought she knew, it's a dark, dangerous one run on politics and greed. And by getting involved, Nisha stands to lose not only her freedom, but those closest to her as well.
That cover is beyond epic! Intriguing summary, too. I need this book!!

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. Ooh, awesome find. Definitely added this one to the To-read list. I'm wondering where the dolls come into play--reference to the girls or to actual dolls (because actual dolls could be really freaky)?

  3. This does sound really interesting. At first I thought maybe she'd become an assassin as that seems to be a theme in YA fiction lately :)
