Waiting on Wednesday: Long May She Reign

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Title: Long May She Reign 

Author: Rhiannon Thomas
Release Date: February 21, 2017



Freya was never meant to be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly, and the king and his courtiers are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have survived the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself. (taken from goodreads.com)

Why I Need It: 

Going from twenty-third in line to being the queen of an entire kingdom? What are the odds? Sounds like a bit of a Red Wedding situation to me.... As always I'm a sucker for these kinds of tales. Can't wait for February!
