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 Banished by Liz De Jager. Here's the synopsis:

Sworn to protect, honour and slay — because chaos won’t banish itself

Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s living with her unorthodox cousins and sharing their strange lives. Especially since their home-schooling includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons.

But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and use her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies.

As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love.

I wanted to be one of the first bloggers to feature Banished on Waiting on Wednesday as huge disclaimer here - Liz is a good friend and fellow UK book bloggerI am so, so proud to be featuring her BEAUTIFUL book today - I love the cover and the synopsis is gripping.  I'm not just saying this but I'm really looking forward to reading this (and also a little scared if I'm honest since Liz is a friend) but I can't wait to find out what it's all about.  

Banished is published on 27th February, 2014.


  1. Oh Lynsey - this is incredible. I know though that you'll be honest when you get it - which terrifies me. I hope though that I've done you guys proud! And thanks for this! How many years in the making!? :D

  2. I was so excited to see this, 'My Favourite Books' was one of the first book review blogs I read. It's so cool that it's close enough to being published now that we have the cover for the book, and it's such a gorgeous cover!

  3. I'm so excited for this and I'm so proud of Liz!
