Waiting On Wednesday (8)

Author: Kate Locke
Publication Date: February 5, 2013
Publisher: Orbit
Series: The Immortal Empire #2

When her brother Val gets in over his head in an investigation of Half-Blood disappearances and goes missing himself, it's up to Xandra, newly crowned Goblin Queen, to get him back and bring the atrocities to light. Xandra must frequent the seediest parts of London, while also coping with what she is, the political factions vying for her favor, and the all too-close scrutiny of Queen Victoria, who wants her head. Add this to a being a suspect in a murder investigation, a werewolf boyfriend with demands of his own, and a mother hell bent on destroying the monarchy, and Xandra barely knows which way is up. One thing she does know is that she's already lost one sibling, she's not about to lose another.

I just received the first book in this series in the mail yesterday! After all of the reviews that I have read I just know that I am going to love this book. She just looks like such an awesome heroine! I love her steam punk look and her vibrant red hair. I know that this is going to be a series that I will want to collect and set neatly atop my bookshelf.

  2. OOh yay! I had preordered the first one! I saw it in the story early, but it was at full price and I need a deal! So I ordered it online for like $10 off! And it's a new copy!! Should've left yesterday but because of the holiday I know it probably didn't. :P

  5. New follower! I have heard about this series. A friend of mine gushed about it to me for weeks. I agree that she does look like an awesome heroine. The red hair makes her strong and a force to be reckoned with.
