The Traitor Prince (Ravenspire #3) by C.J. Redwine (WOW #26)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom. But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

After barely escaping the imposter’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison. The only way to gain an audience with the king — and reveal Javan’s identity — is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament. But winning is much harder than acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even the warden herself.

The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive — but she has dangerous secrets.

Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight the deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan. If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.

The Traitor Prince releases on February 13, 2018, from Balzer + Bray

Gah! I need this book in my hands right this second. First off, the cover is PURPLE!!!! Secondly, this author has already written two fantastic standalone installments in this series and while I'm not as familiar with the story that this installment is based upon, the Arabian folktale called The False Prince, I still can't wait to see what new adventure this author will take me on next. Another thing I love is that while these books are standalone and you don't have to read the others if you do the world really starts to take shape before your eyes. This installment looks like it's full of action and a rather heated romance. I love how this author is shaping this world and I have been chomping at the bit for this book for months and now it finally has a cover and title and it's becoming so real. I'm already scouring Edelweiss every day making sure I can get my hands on it as soon as humanly possible.

So, what are you waiting for this Wednesday?
