Plot: Beka and her friends will face their greatest and most important challenge ever when the young heir to the kingdom vanishes. They will be sent out of Corus on a trail that appears and disappears, following a twisting road throughout Tortall. It will be her greatest Hunt—if she can survive the very powerful people who do not want her to succeed in her goal. (Original plot summary from Pierce’s Website)
Why I’m waiting: I love Tamora Pierce. She writes thrilling adventures staring strong female characters and her romances never fall into cliches. The Beka Cooper series is one of my favorites – with a smart young heroine and a band of charming rogues – so I’m awaiting the third and final volume with bated breath.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. I plan to participate for the next year at least (because my to read pile really needs to be longer ;P). If you’d like to join in, grab a graphic, write a post and leave a link on her site.
