Waiting on Wednesday: (60)

One Blood Ruby

Melissa Marr
Seven Black Diamonds, #2
Expected: February 28th, 2017

Description from GoodReads:

   Now that Lilywhite Abernathy is the heir to the Hidden Lands, everything is about to change.

   The Queen of Blood and Rage wants Lily to help broker peace with the human world, but Lily knows that harmony won’t come easily. After decades of waging war on the humans, who cost the queen her firstborn daughter, the fae are struggling to accept Lily, a half-human monarch. And the humans, while no match against faery affinities, will hardly agree to the queen’s d├ętente without resistance.

   Lily wants to be a fair ruler but fears having to abandon the life she’s known to do so. Now that she and Creed are more than just fellow Black Diamonds—operatives for the queen—her priorities have shifted. But her worries about assuming the throne are derailed when it becomes clear that someone—or some fae—is masterminding violent attacks to discourage peace.

Why I Want It:

   Like I said in my review of Seven Black Diamonds' review, I wasn't a fan of Melissa's original series, Wicked Lovely, but her stand alone thriller, Made for You, made me give her books another chance. Seven Black Diamonds exceeded my expectations, the story had me hooked since the first page. I cannot wait to see where the story continues in  One Blood Ruby.

   That's my Waiting on Wednesday this week! Will you be picking up One Blood Ruby? What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I LOVE this book's cover! The flower is gorgeous. :D Marr's books are very hit-or-miss for me, to be honest. I might try this series though. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fantastic week, Stephanie. :)
