Waiting on Wednesday: Shadow Study!!


Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder
Expected Publishing date: February 25th, 2015

Shadow Study (Soulfinder, #1)New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder wowed readers with Poison Study, the unforgettable story of poison taster Yelena. Now she's back with a new tale of intrigue.

Once, only her own life hung in the balance...

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands—and protect her relationship with Valek.

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job—and his life—are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret—or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is—while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous...

The cover is honestly gorgeous and Maria V. Snyder is one of my favorite authors. I am hoping for an ARC on it but my chances are pretty low. Oh well :) I still can not wait! This series was so amazing!!
