Waiting on Wednesday: The Wish Granter by C.J.Redwine

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

The Wish Granter

     An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen.
     The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of SĂșndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.
     Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.
     So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.
     But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother...and her soul.

Why I'm Waiting: I'm not sure if y'all saw how much I LOVED the first one, The Shadow Queen. It was truly beautiful inside and out. (The HCs were BEAUTIFULLLL!!) And now this one is a companion and about another fairy tale?! I'M SOLD. I also can't wait to see how Redwine incorporates the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale. I'm especially excited because there's not many YA that use that fairy tale. I'm hoping for something that is super cool and super unique just like it's predecessor. 

Will you be waiting on this with me? 
What are you waiting on this week?!
