Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch - Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine and it's an opprotunity to highlight upcoming books. Throughout the month of September, because October is going to be filled with new releases I'm excited about, I decided to post a Waiting on Wednesday every week this month to share some exciting upcoming novels. Today's book is a 2014 author debut, and so I thought it would be fun to share this exciting new high fantasy that comes out October 14, 2014.

A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.
