Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy McCulloch. Here's the synopsis:

Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.

Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all—not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.

Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.

A gripping YA action-adventure fantasy, the first part of a planned duology.

I do LOVE the sound of this book and I think the cover is awesomeI love fantasy and I just have a really good feeling about this book and that I'm going to love it.  I can't wait to find out.  The Oathbreaker's Shadow is published on 6th June, 2013 which is the day before my birthday.  I know what I'm asking for then!

  1. I think this looks so amazing-I really want to know what oath he broke and what he's going to do next.
