Waiting on Wednesday (40)

This week, I'm waiting on...

House of Shadows by Rachel Neumeier. Here's what Goodreads has to say: Orphaned, two sisters are left to find their own fortunes.

Sweet and proper, Karah's future seems secure at a glamorous Flower House. She could be pampered for the rest of her life... if she agrees to play their game.

Nemienne, neither sweet nor proper, has fewer choices. Left with no alternative, she accepts a mysterious mage's offer of an apprenticeship. Agreeing means a home and survival, but can Nemienne trust the mage?

With the arrival of a foreign bard into the quiet city, dangerous secrets are unearthed, and both sisters find themselves at the center of a plot that threatens not only to upset their newly found lives, but also to destroy their kingdom.

I'm not usually a huge fan of fantasy, but I can't resist that gorgeous cover and intriguing summary. House of Shadows releases July 2012 from Orbit.

Have you heard of this book? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
