 Waiting on Wednesday #66 – The Shadow Queen

Today, I’m waiting on The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine, as I’ve already seen some pretty amazing reviews for this fairy tale re-telling that’s scheduled for release on February 23rd, 2016 by Balzer + Bray.

The Shadow Queen cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews


Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.
In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.
But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

  1. Am I the only one who thought of the “Snow White & the Huntsman” movie while first reading the synopsis?! Either I don’t remember anymore or it really has some similarities, which I really don’t mind, haha. But it is a retelling of Snow White, right? Oh well, whatever! It really sounds awesome and I’ll definitely add this to my TBR list! Thanks for sharing, Lexxie! 🙂

  2. This really sounds like a book for me 🙂 Nå er høstferien i gang hos oss og været er heldigvis nydelig. Det var et fantastisk nordlys på himmelen da jeg gikk hjem fra jobb i kveld, og jeg fikk faktisk til å ta noen bilder. Har lagt det ut på instagram der jeg heter anettedragonfly. Håper du har en fin onsdagskveld, klem fra Anette 🙂
