Waiting on Wednesday: The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

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



The Black Witch by Laurie Forest
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Series: The Black Witch Chronicles, #1
Publication date: 05/02/2017
A Great Winged One will soon arise and cast his fearsome shadow upon the land. And just as Night slays Day, and Day slays Night, so also shall another Black Witch rise to meet him, her powers vast beyond imagining. 

So foretells the greatest prophecy of the Gardnerian mages. Carnissa Gardner, the last prophesied Black Witch, drove back the enemy forces and saved her people during the Realm War. Now a new evil is on the horizon, and her granddaughter, Elloren, is believed to be Carnissa’s heir—but while she is the absolute image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above nearly all else.

When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren is eager to join her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University and finally embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother’s legacy. But she soon realizes that the University, which admits all manner of peoples—including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of her people—is an even more treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.

This synopsis really has me wanting to get my hands on this one right now. I was never one to resist a book about witches.  I just have a feeling that I'm going to love this one!

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?

  1. I'd only heard of this book recently, on another WoW post a few weeks ago! I feel like I haven't read a witch-related book in a loooooong time. Maybe Josephine Angelini's series? I only read the first two books though. Anyway, I hope you love this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. =)

    Check out my WoW post!
