Waiting on Wednesday: Rosemarked

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne
Pub. Date: November 7, 2017 

Goodreads says, "A healer who cannot be healed . . . When Zivah falls prey to the deadly rose plague, she knows it’s only a matter of time before she fully succumbs. Now she’s destined to live her last days in isolation, cut off from her people and unable to practice her art—until a threat to her village creates a need that only she can fill.  A soldier shattered by war . . . Broken by torture at the hands of the Amparan Empire, Dineas thirsts for revenge against his captors. Now escaped and reunited with his tribe, he’ll do anything to free them from Amparan rule—even if it means undertaking a plan that risks not only his life but his very self.  Thrust together on a high-stakes mission to spy on the capital, the two couldn’t be more different: Zivah, deeply committed to her vow of healing, and Dineas, yearning for vengeance. But as they grow closer, they must find common ground to protect those they love. And amidst the constant fear of discovery, the two grapple with a mutual attraction that could break both of their carefully guarded hearts.  This smart, sweeping fantasy with a political edge and a slow-burning romance will capture fans of The Lumatere Chronicles and An Ember in the Ashes."
I am always on the hunt for a new YA fantasy. I have high hopes for this one! What do you guys think?


  1. Yaaasss, I'm excited about this book too! I liked Blackburne's debut duology so I'm hoping this one won't disappoint. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Christina. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

    1. I didn't read her debut; I'll have to look into that one. I'm glad you like the sound of this book. Thanks for visiting, Alyssa!

  2. I keep hearing about this one and I hope it's as good as it sounds! I'll have to see a few reviews before I'm fully on board (I'm like that with most high fantasy recently just because there is SO much of it out there this year!), but it does look amazing!

    1. I know, right? I have an ARC and a few people have told me it's great, so I am excited to check it out this fall. I'm loving the cover, too. Thanks for visiting, Becky!

  3. I hope you'll enjoy this one, Christina!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
