Waiting on Wednesday: EMPIRE OF SHADOWS


WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine


EMPIRE OF SHADOWS by Miriam Forster
November 4th, 2014 from HarperTeen

Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire’s capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could’ve imagined. More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.

Mara knew her life in the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?

Empire of Shadows will take readers on a spellbinding journey into the world Miriam Forster first introduced in City of a Thousand Dolls—a world with a divided society, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and deeply laid conspiracies.

I really enjoyed Forster's first novel, so I'm thrilled to see a companion novel to CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS. And look at that cover! Very eye-catching. 

What are you waiting on?

  1. This is gorgeous! Ah, yay, I love companion novels. Even though I do want to read the first book, too, it so much less pressure than knowing you have to read one to understand the other! :)
