Waiting on Wednesday (88): The Sleeping Prince


Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. To join in on the waiting game festivities, click the link to Jill's blog. Leave me a comment below with what you're waiting on this Wednesday.


The Sleeping Prince by Melinda Salisbury
Publication Date: May 31, 2016
Publisher: Scholastic Books
eturn to the darkly beautiful world of The Sin Eater's Daughter with a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified . . . and desperate for more.
     Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin's life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.
     When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won't reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother and herself. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.
I read The Sin-Eater's Daughter and was bored as well as creeped out with the incest thing going on. You think after Game of Thrones I would be desensitized to all things, but everything that happened in TSED just came crumbling down. It wasn't my favorite novel, Twyla was a dunce, and I wanted to know more about Sin Eating rather than the stupid love between Leif and Twyla. Ugh. Gross.

But The Sleeping Prince says nothing about Twyla. And we will finally be getting to know more about the sleeping prince! Which really excites me. So, here I am waiting, fingers crossed!
