{ Waiting on Wednesday } April 4, 2018

Man. It's been so long since I've done one of these, and that makes me sad because I love them! It's so fun to see what everyone is looking forward to reading!

From Goodreads:
"The ancient land of Éirinn is mired in war. Ciara, Princess of Mide, has never known a time when Éirinn’s kingdoms were not battling for power, or Northmen were not plundering their shores.

The people of Mide have thankfully always been safe because of Ciara’s unearthly ability to control her enemies’ minds and actions. But lately, a mysterious crow has been appearing to Ciara, whispering warnings of an even darker threat. Although her clansmen dismiss her visions as pagan nonsense, Ciara fears this coming evil will destroy not just Éirinn, but the entire world.

Then the crow leads Ciara to Leif, a young Northman leader. Leif should be Ciara’s enemy, but when Ciara discovers that he, too, shares her prophetic visions, she knows he’s something more. Leif is mounting an impressive army, and with Ciara’s strength in battle the two might have a chance to save their world.

With evil rising around them, they’ll do what it takes to defend the land they love…even if it means making the greatest sacrifice of all.

This sounds like a mix of fantasy, history, and Celtic/Norse mythology. And I've heard fairies too? Um, yes please. To all of the above. I'm so glad this comes out on the 10th so I don't have to wait for it any longer!!
