Waiting on Wednesday #34

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday. WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Every week we showcase an upcoming release that we are excited about. Jill hasn't been posting lately, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted WoW, and it is now called Can't Wait Wednesday.

My pick for this week is Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne!
A healer who cannot be healed . . .

When Zivah falls prey to the deadly rose plague, she knows it’s only a matter of time before she fully succumbs. Now she’s destined to live her last days in isolation, cut off from her people and unable to practice her art—until a threat to her village creates a need that only she can fill.

A soldier shattered by war . . .

Broken by torture at the hands of the Amparan Empire, Dineas thirsts for revenge against his captors. Now escaped and reunited with his tribe, he’ll do anything to free them from Amparan rule—even if it means undertaking a plan that risks not only his life but his very self.

Thrust together on a high-stakes mission to spy on the capital, the two couldn’t be more different: Zivah, deeply committed to her vow of healing, and Dineas, yearning for vengeance. But as they grow closer, they must find common ground to protect those they love. And amidst the constant fear of discovery, the two grapple with a mutual attraction that could break both of their carefully guarded hearts.

This smart, sweeping fantasy with a political edge and a slow-burning romance will capture fans of The Lumatere Chronicles and An Ember in the Ashes.

Why I'm Waiting!
I've seen this circling around the blogosphere for quite some time, and I'm intrigued! I love the classic opposites must come together, especially in fantasy. Also, it seems that the book will be pretty fast-paced, considering that Zivah will die in a matter of days. Plus, there is a political edge and a slow-burning romance, which is just calling to me. 

Are you looking forward to Rosemarked? 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!
