Waiting on Wednesday 
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week, my pick is a book you might not be aware of: The Mist-Born Witches by Barb Hendee. It’s gotten very little buzz on the blogs I usually follow so I thought this would be a good time to showcase this title.
I don’t read a ton of high fantasy but I’m quite partial to the Noble Dead Saga by J. C. and Barb Hendee. I’m not all caught up yet but I really like it, so I’m excited to hear that there will be a new series set in the same world. If you haven’t given these guys a try, I highly recommend starting with the first book in the series, Dhampir, and going forward from there. There are eleven books so far, and their written in phases so it’s important to read them in order. I may try to get caught up before I tackle The Mist-Born Witches, especially since this is a hardcover release and I buy these as paperbacks…
National bestselling author Barb Hendee presents a dark, fascinating new series set in the world of the Noble Dead Saga… the story of two sisters who will discover they have far more power than they ever envisioned…
In a small village in the nation of Droevinka, orphaned sisters Céline and Amelie Fawe scrape out a living selling herbal medicines in their apothecary shop. Céline earns additional money by posing as a seer and pretending to read people’s futures.
But they exist in a land of great noble houses, all vying for power, and when the sisters refuse the orders of a warlord prince, they must flee and are forced to depend on the warlord prince’s brother, Anton, for a temporary haven.
A series of bizarre deaths of pretty young girls are plaguing the village surrounding Prince Anton’s castle. He offers Céline and Amelie permanent protection if they can use their “skills” to find the killer.
With little choice, the sisters enter a world unknown to them—of fine gowns and banquets and advances from powerful men. Their survival depends on catching a murderer who appears to walk through walls and vanish without a trace—and the danger around them seems to grow with each passing night.
