Waiting on Wednesday: Daughter of the Flames by Zoë Marriott

"Waiting on" Wednesday was created by Jill of Breaking the Spine, and is a way for bloggers to share the upcoming books that they're longing for. This week I'm waiting on...

Daughter of the Flames
by Zoë Marriott
Released February 19th, 2009

What if your deadliest enemy were the only one who could save you?

Inside an ancient temple in the mountains, fifteen-year-old Zira trains in the martial arts to become a warrior priestess who can defend the faith of the Ruan people. Bearing a scar on her face from the fire that killed her parents, the orphaned Zira is taught to distrust the occupying Sedornes. Terror strikes when the forces of the tyrannical Sedorne king destroy the only home she knows. To survive, Zira must unravel the secrets of her identity, decide her people’s fate — and accept her growing feelings for a man who should be her enemy.

Why I'm waiting:
I really, really liked the author's debut novel, The Swan Kingdom, a retelling of The Six Swans. Daughter of the Flames will be an original storyline, and with Ms. Marriott's lovely writing style I'm hoping it will be fabulous!

  1. I liked the Swan Kingdom but I thought parts were a bit rushed over. DotF sounds good too. Gorgeous cover
