Waiting on Wednesday (90)


This week I'm waiting for...
Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)
Release Date: April 1, 2014
For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

It just sounds super, super cool and I'm really looking forward to reading all about them. I prefer to picture them as badass trolls rather than these little toys:
Leave a link to your WoW post in the comments below so I can check it out!

Have a good week,
Sam :D


  1. Have you seen Frozen? The rock creatures look very much like troll dolls. I'm really hoping the ones in Stolen Songbird are big,lumbering, scary and fierce. You know, like those in Jack the Giant Slayer or those in TLOTR's. Great choice this week!

  2. YEAH TROLLSSS! I remember those little toys :D Although I can't remember their actual name - the brand. Oh well. I keep seeing this book around! I didn't request it, but I regret that slightly. I hope you read and love it, Sam!!
