Waiting on Wednesday – Mistwood and Two Flowers for the Dragon

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Mistwood by Leah Cypess looks so good!   It’s about a shifter, and you can bet there will be lots of fantasy awesomeness.  It hits stores April 27.

From Amazon:

The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood. But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can’t help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew. 

Two Flowers for the Dragon is also about a shape-shifter.  Shakuya can take the form of a dragon!  I love Nari Kusakawa, and the last volume left off on such a painful cliff-hanger!!  Volume 6 will also be in stores April 27th, so grab them both while you’re shopping!

From Amazon:

Nari Kusakawa–creator of THE RECIPE FOR GERTRUDE and THE PALETTE OF 12 SECRET COLORS–cooks up a funny and romantic new adventure. Teenage Shakuya, the next head of the Dragon Clan, suddenly finds herself with two fiancés! The first vanished years ago but has now mysteriously returned. But betrothed number two is not about to just step aside. What’s a girl to do? Her mother decides that at the end of a year, Shakuya will marry the man she has the strongest feelings for. How that will be determined is by "magic tattoos" on both of Shakuya’s hands, each representing one of her suitors. As her love grows, so do the tattoos! And complicating all of this is that fact that whenever Shakuya gets upset, she turns into a fearsome dragon!

What are you waiting on?
