Waiting on Wednesday: The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

The Cursed Queen (The Impostor Queen, #2)

Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: January 3rd 2017 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
As you may recall, I reviewed The Impostor Queen earlier this year, so I was excited when I got my hands on a copy of the sequel at work.  I really liked the idea and the concept of the first book, but it definitely felt like more of an introduction to the world.  I’m ready to see the author expand on the world building and create more depth to the characters.  Watch out for my review in the future!

Summary:

Ansa has always been a fighter.

As a child, she fought the invaders who murdered her parents and snatched her as a raid prize. She fought for her place next to Thyra, the daughter of the Krigere Chieftain. She fought for her status as a warrior in her tribe: blood and victory are her way of life. But the day the Krigere cross the great lake and threaten the witch queen of the Kupari, everything changes.

Cursed by the queen with fire and ice, Ansa is forced to fight against an invisible enemy—the dark magic that has embedded itself deep in her bones. The more she tries to hide it, the more dangerous it becomes. And with the Krigere numbers decimated and the tribe under threat from the traitorous brother of the dead Chieftain, Ansa is torn between her loyalty to the Krigere, her love for Thyra, and her own survival instincts.

With her world in chaos and each side wanting to claim her for their own, only one thing is certain: unless Ansa can control the terrible magic inside her, everything she’s fought for will be destroyed.
