"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: The House of the Four Winds
Series: One Dozen Daughters 1
Author: Mercedes Lackey & James Mallory
Expected Publication: August 5, 2014
The rulers of tiny, impoverished Swansgaard have twelve daughters and one son. While the prince’s future is assured, his twelve sisters must find their own fortunes.
Disguising herself as Clarence, a sailor, Princess Clarice intends to work her way to the New World. When the crew rebels, Clarice/Clarence, an expert with rapier and dagger, sides with the handsome navigator, Dominick, and kills the cruel captain.
Dominick leads the now-outlawed crew in search of treasure in the secret pirate haven known as The House of Four Winds. They encounter the sorceress Shamal, who claims Dominick for her own—but Clarice has fallen hard for Dominick and won’t give him up without a fight.
Why I am looking forward to this: Love this cover! Being a Pirates of the Carribean fan, I love watching pirates, but have to say I never read a story on them. So this is a bit out of my usual, which makes me like it even more. =)
