Bewitching News, Strike Me Lightning. Pretty Please.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill from Breaking the Spine that showcases upcoming releases that we can't wait to claim as our own & aren't afraid to tell that to the world!

Meg Lytton has always known of her dark and powerful gift. Raised a student of the old magick by her Aunt Jane, casting the circle to see visions of the future and concocting spells from herbs and bones has always been as natural to Meg as breathing. But there has never been a more dangerous time to practise the craft, for it is 1554, and the sentence for any woman branded a witch is hanging, or burning at the stake.

Sent to the ruined, isolated palace of Woodstock to serve the disgraced Elizabeth, daughter of Henry VIII and half-sister of Queen Mary, Meg discovers her skills are of interest to the outcast princess, who is desperate to know if she will ever claim the throne. But Meg's existence becomes more dangerous every day, with the constant threat of exposure by the ruthless witchfinder Marcus Dent, and the arrival of a young Spanish priest, Alejandro de Castillo, to whom Meg is irresistibly drawn-- despite their very different attitudes to her secret.

Thrilling and fast-paced, this is the first unputdownable story in a bewitching new series.

Coming Soon on 5 July 2012.

Me liketh Spaineth. Thanketh Victoria Lamb (author)!


I'm obsessed with the Tudor era and this is a great follow-up to the legacy of The Other Boleyn Girl. I haven't seen much YA novels that dare to deal with it, aye? 

This is said to be Twilight meets The Other Boleyn Girl. Not sure how it will turn out to be though. But, definitely sensational and magical. :)

*Rubs palms in glee*

Finally a YA historical fiction that gets me excited!

Share the excitement and *narrows eyes* don't you dare to leave without dropping by my giveaway! YAY!
