Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Companion of Darkness
Author:  C.J. Rutherford
Expected Publication Date:  July 14th, 2018

Jesaela doesn’t want to leave her home, the forest and the Tree. She doesn’t want to leave her family, but she has no choice. 

The young faerie m
ust be the next companion to the Eldar Princess in the faraway Citadel, or else the Eldar will send the dragons to turn her home to cinder and ash. 

So Jes must travel alone to the den of darkness in search of the spell that binds the dragons to the Eldar king’s will, to try and free her people from bondage. 

If she succeeds, freedom and light will prevail, but if she fails, Darkness will consume them all.
