Waiting on Wednesday #59!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday, and meme originally created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Jill hasn't been active for a while, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted it! If you see posts by the name of "Can't Wait Wednesday," it's the same thing!

The book I'm looking forward to this week is Markswoman by Rati Mehrotra!

Kyra is the youngest Markswoman in the Order of Kali, a highly trained sisterhood of elite warriors armed with telepathic blades. Guided by a strict code of conduct, Kyra and the other Orders are sworn to protect the people of Asiana. But to be a Markswoman, an acolyte must repudiate her former life completely. Kyra has pledged to do so, yet she secretly harbors a fierce desire to avenge her dead family.

When Kyra’s beloved mentor dies in mysterious circumstances, and Tamsyn, the powerful, dangerous Mistress of Mental Arts, assumes control of the Order, Kyra is forced on the run. Using one of the strange Transport Hubs that are remnants of Asiana’s long-lost past, she finds herself in the unforgiving wilderness of desert that is home to the Order of Khur, the only Order composed of men. Among them is Rustan, a young, disillusioned Marksman whom she soon befriends.

Kyra is certain that Tamsyn committed murder in a twisted bid for power, but she has no proof. And if she fails to find it, fails in her quest to keep her beloved Order from following Tamsyn down a dark path, it could spell the beginning of the end for Kyra--and for Asiana.

But what she doesn’t realize is that the line between justice and vengeance is razor thin . . . thin as the blade of a knife.


Here are some stats about the book:
Genre - YA Fantasy
Release Date - January 23, 2018
Publisher - Harper Voyager

Why I'm Waiting
I mean...just read the synopsis! Doesn't Kyra sound like a total badass? I love how she is elite warrior, determined for justice and figuring out the truth. Sometimes protagonists are passive, but this one seems very much active. She's doing the action, the action isn't necessarily being done to her. I'm sure that there are going to be antagonists, but I love a character who takes action! Plus, the goodreads reviews are all pretty positive!

Are you looking forward to Markswoman?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
Happy Reading!
