Waiting on Wednesday - The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are being eagerly anticipated.

The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams
Goodreads - UF - October 25th 2011 by Ace

Some humans can see the fae. McKenzie Lewis can track them, reading the shadows they leave behind. But some shadows lead to danger. Others lead to lies.

A Houston college student trying to finish her degree, McKenzie has been working for the fae king for years, tracking vicious rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn’t her only secret. For just as long, she’s been in love with Kyol, the king’s sword-master—and relationships between humans and fae are forbidden.

But any hope for a normal life is shattered when she’s captured by Aren, the fierce and uncompromising rebel leader. He teaches her the forbidden fae language and tells her dark truths about the Court, all to persuade her to turn against the king. Time is running out, and as the fight starts to claim human lives, McKenzie has no choice but to decide once and for all whom to trust and where she ultimately stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

I absolutely love the sound of this one.  First off, Ann Aguirre quote on the cover!  That certainly puts it in my book.  Then there's the summary - which sounds one part action movie, two parts fantasy.  Love. It.  The Shadow Reader is also from a 2011 Debut novelist, so we should all show our support.

  7. I am always on the look out for a new UF series and this one sounds fantasic. It's on my wishlist.
