Waiting on Wednesday #58: The Queen's Rising

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Queen's Rising by Rebecca Ross
Publication Date: February 6, 2018 
Publisher: HarperTeen

When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.
Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.
Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes.
With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?
Why Am I Excited For This Book?

I found out about The Queen's Rising while looking at the ELECTRIC EIGHTEENS webpage for 2018 Debut Authors. The picture and title instantly grabbed my attention so I knew I needed to find out more about the book. After reading the synopsis on Goodreads, I knew this was one that I really wanted to read. I love reading Fantasy books and The Queen's Rising sounds like it is going to be an interesting read. I can't wait to find out more about how the passions play into this world. And I am really curious to find out what Brienna will do. The Queen's Rising is on my TBR list because it sounds awesome and like it is going to be full of magic, action, and entertainment. I am looking forward to reading it.
