A Rogue Librarian's Reading List

{March 28, 2012}   Waiting on Wednesdays: Spirit’s Princess

Title: Spirit’s Princess

Author: Esther Friesner

Publisher: Random House

Release date: April 24th 2012

Plot: Himiko the beloved daughter of a chieftain in third century Japan has always been special. The day she was born there was a devastating earthquake, and the tribe’s shamaness had an amazing vision revealing the young girl’s future—one day this privileged child will be the spiritual and tribal leader over all of the tribes.

Why I’m waiting: This is Friesner’s third Princess duology. She has already reimagined the lives of Helen of Troy and Nefertiti.In those series, she gave us the story of strong, intelligent and influencial historical women. I can wait to see what she does for one of Japan’s most famous queens.

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.


This book is definitely on my wishlist, I love the concept and the cover, great pick, here’s my IMM


Oooo I like a good historical novel every now and again so I may look this up! Thanks for sharing!
