Waiting on Wednesday (25) Burning Glass

Waiting on Wednesday (25)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

This week, I'm excited about:

Burning GlassTitle: Burning Glass
Author: Kathryn Purdie
Pages: 512
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: March 1, 2016

Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.

But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can’t decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.

As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.

BURNING GLASS is debut author Kathryn Purdie’s stunning tale of dangerous magic, heart-rending romance, and the hard-won courage it takes to let go.

I'm excited about this because well.. magic. I love fantasy!  And this sounds wonderful and there may possibly be a romance? Maybe? I hope?

What are you waiting on?


  1. I'm excited for this one too! I love fantasy as well and I'm hoping for a good romance (I'm sensing there will be a love triangle, so fingers crossed it will be well done and won't make us want to throw the book across the room!). Great pick!

    1. Haha I know! I can deal with a good love triangle so long as it's not done terribly. Thanks for stopping by! :)
