Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

If she sink, she be no witch and shall be drowned.

If she float, she be a witch and must be hanged.

Meg Lytton has always known she is different—that she bears a dark and powerful gift. But in 1554 England, in service at Woodstock Palace to the banished Tudor princess Elizabeth, it has never been more dangerous to practise witchcraft. Meg knows she must guard her secret carefully from the many suspicious eyes watching over the princess and her companions. One wrong move could mean her life, and the life of Elizabeth, rightful heir to the English throne.

With witchfinder Marcus Dent determined to have Meg’s hand in marriage, and Meg’s own family conspiring against the English queen, there isn’t a single person Meg can trust. Certainly not the enigmatic young Spanish priest Alejandro de Castillo, despite her undeniable feelings. But when all the world turns against her, Meg must open her heart to a dangerous choice.

The Secret Circle meets The Other Boleyn Girl in Witchstruck, the first book of the magical Tudor Witch trilogy.

Okay, technically I don’t have to wait for this one because I just got approved to review it. But I have no time! The Unearthly Read-Along starts tomorrow and I have two other books I need to review before I read this one, both for blog tours next month. Have to get those done. I think I can knock those out the first week of August, as soon as I’m done with Unearthly. Then I can read this.

This sounds so good! And isn’t the cover beautiful? I saw it on someone else’s Waiting on Wednesday a week or two ago and I immediately added it to my Goodreads TBR shelf.
