Waiting on Wednesday: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting for...


The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King
Publisher: Skyscape
Publication Date: June 1st, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.

But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.

Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda’s only hope for escape lies in an arcane, forbidden power that’s buried within her.

In Emily R. King’s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire, and reclaim her life as her own.

Basically, if a book has the word 'queen' in the title and has a cover like this beauty, you can guarantee I'm gonna want to read it.

What book are you looking forward to this week? Is The Hundredth Queen on your TBR?

    1. Ooh! I might have to try and request an eARC! I requested a physical ARC, but lol, we'll see how that goes.
