Waiting on Wednesday: Promise of Shadows

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for…

Publish Date: March 11, 2014
Genre: YA, Paranormal Fantasy
Pages: 371

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.

Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that. But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?
I'm all for a good paranormal novel, but I haven't found one lately to become invested in. Promise of Shadows sounds like it might be exactly what I'm looking for. Zephyr sounds like a badass in her own right, and a half-god assassin? Colour me extremely intrigued. I have a thing for dark powers, plot twists and good vs. evil, so you'd better believe this one is high on my list for 2014. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?


  1. I'm in love with the cover. I think that it stands out, along with the MC's name...woah. Zephyr Mourning? I hope that the Promise of Shadows does turn out to be what you were looking for :)
