Waiting on Wednesday: Promise of Shadows

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.

Promise of Shadows I've been excited about PROMISE OF SHADOWS since Cecelia mentioned it in her post about upcoming 2014 books.  Her reasons for wanting it - "Mythology, young adult and the promise of funny, smart writing.  Well, yes!" - sounded pretty awesome to me.

Below is the blurb for Justina Ireland's PROMISE OF SHADOWS:
A teen who is half-god, half-human must own her power whether she likes it or not in this snappy, snarky novel with a serving of smoldering romance.

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changed when her sister was murdered—and Zephyr used a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.

On the run from a punishment worse than death, an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend upends Zephyr’s world—and not only because her old friend has grown surprisingly, extremely hot. It seems that Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess that is prophesied to shift the power balance: for hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.

But how is she supposed to save everyone else when she can barely take care of herself?
Doesn't that sound awesome?  Plus, the typographic cover would look so pretty on my shelves.  PROMISE OF SHADOWS will be released March 11, 2014.


  1. I'm definitely looking forward to this one too. And not *entirely* because it's so pretty.

    1. Pretty covers do tip the scale, though.

  2. I haven't heard of this one! Sounds good!

  3. Ooh love the cover! This does sound good, and I love a good, snarky character.

  4. They had this on Edelweiss at one point (not sure if still there) so I downloaded it and am hoping to give it a try soon-hoping for good things!
