My WoW:

Prophecy (Prophecy #1)
by Ellen Oh
Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: January 2nd 2013 by HarperTeen

Synopsis:

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

I prefer male MC's in my adventure YA's, but dude, Graceling. I loved Katsa in Graceling and this sounds a bit like it. Hopefully not too much like Graceling, though.

  1. I can't speak to any similarities with Graceling as I have not read it, but oh boy does this one sound good! I think this one may be among my top most anticipated reads for next year! And I really hope it lives up to the hype in my head!

  3. I haven't read Graceling but this sounds awesome! I love a kick butt female and the only female in the king's army? A demon slayer adventure sounds great.

  14. I want my hands on this one now, Chel! I really liked Graceling but I'm pretty sure this one is going to have a very Asian vibe to it. The author once wrote a very interesting post on the whitewashing of covers :)
