But when the King’s Guard launches a relentless search for a girl with a mark like hers, Jenna assumes that it has more to do with her role as a saboteur than any birth-based curse. Though Jenna doesn’t know why she’s being hunted, she knows that she can’t get caught.

Why I'm Waiting:
I'm in a fantasy mood right now, and this one coming out next month sounds really good. I'm actually going tobe starting Chima's Seven Realms series later this month for a contest. I've heard amazing things about it, so I'm super excited to read that series and start her new one.
Have you read her older series? I'd love to hear your thoughts on them! What are you waiting on today?
