Waiting on Wednesday: Seven Black Diamonds

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where she spotlights upcoming releases.

This week I am waiting on:
Seven Black Diamonds
By: Melissa Marr
Publisher: HarperCollins


Melissa Marr was one of the first authors to really get me hooked on YA reading for fun. I enjoyed her earlier works, so I'll be back for more. This synopsis (great) + this cover (gorgeous) = I am really excited to dive into this new adventure.

This riveting fantasy marks Melissa Marr’s return to the world of faery courts that made her Wicked Lovely series an international phenomenon.

Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal—she’s half human, half fae, and since the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humans and faeries. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of the fae courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir due to the actions of reckless humans.

Lily’s father has always shielded her, but when she’s sent to the prestigious St. Columba’s school, she’s delivered straight into the arms of a fae sleeper cell—the Black Diamonds. The Diamonds are planted in the human world as the sons and daughters of the most influential families and tasked with destroying it from within. Against her will, Lilywhite’s been chosen to join them...and even the romantic attention of the fae rock singer Creed Morrison isn’t enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the familiar world she knows.

Melissa Marr returns to faery in a dramatic story of the precarious space between two worlds and the people who must thrive there. The combination of ethereal fae powers, tumultuous romance, and a bloodthirsty faery queen will have longtime fans and new readers at the edge of their seats.

  2. I am not a huge fairy fan but I might give this one a go if I see it at the library when it's released. Thanks for sharing and I do hope you love it!

    1. Thanks! I do think it will appeal to those who usually don't like fey books.
