Waiting on Wednesday #62: Empire of Shadows

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

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster

Title: Empire of Shadows (Bhinian Empire #2)
Author: Miriam Forster
Release date: November 4th 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

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.

First, let us take a moment to appreciate that beautiful cover. It's even more gorgeous than that of City of a Thousand Dolls, which I really loved too! This is a companion novel in the series, and I can't wait to get back into this world. It's so unique and intriguing. Plus, the synopsis of this one has really drawn me in as well.


  1. The first book was really good and I'm looking forward to reading this one :) The cover is also gorgeous! Great pick.
