Waiting on Wednesday (43)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

Captured: The Divided Realms (#1)
by Maggie L. Wood
To be released: May 01, 2011

Summary from the publisher:
"Fifteen-year-old Willow Kingswell has been listening to her Nana's tales of faeries and enchanted kingdoms for as long as she can remember. But when she is magically transported to the realm of Mistolear, she is stunned to learn that the stories were true, and that she is actually a princess. Suddenly, Willow has to fit into a royal family she didn't know she had, deal with customs she doesn't understand and sort out her feelings for Brand, the handsome knight who has sworn to protect her.
On top of everything, she may also be the key to saving Mistolear from a terrifying spell. The nefarious faerie prince Nezeral has pitted two kingdoms against each other in a life-or-death chess match, in which people are the game pieces. As a pawn, Willow now glows with the light of the game and must find the courage and cleverness to battle Nezeral before her loved ones fall. Could a meager pawn really be the most powerful piece on the board? Captured is the first book in the thrilling Divided Realms series."

I've only recently seen things about this book and the second one that comes out in the same day. But A. The cover is awesome. And B. I love the whole faerie thing. Kinda sounds a little like the Iron Fey series by Kagawa - the whole being dropped in a new realm where the rules are totally different thing. So I'm really interested to see how this one stacks up!

Love the cover! And very interesting that the sequel comes out on the same day - no waiting to find out what happens next!

What a tempting summary! And it's not often that an author will release a book and its sequel on the same day. I'm curious as to the reason and even more curious about the book. :) To the TBR list it goes!

I hadn't heard of this one as well, but I love the premise and the cover is awesome.
