Wishful Wednesday: The Sin Eater's Daughter (The Sin Eater's Daughter #1) by Melinda Salisbury

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every week, I'll pick an upcoming book that I'm anticipating the release for and showcase it here on the blog. This week, that book is going to be The Sin Eater's Daughter (The Sin Eater's Daughter #1) by the super talented Melinda Salisbury

A lead female progtag, who's also an executoner. OH, HELL YEAH! I was like O_O, when I first read the synopsis for this one on Goodreads. She instantly kills anyone that she touches, she's also promised to the Prince who doesn't seem all that interested in getting too close to her, and she has to choose between doing whatever it takes to protect her Kingdom or choose a doomed love interest. Um, yeah...I'm so there. I don't know about you, but I'm definitely excited for this one. And that cover, gah! It's so wickedly gorgeous, I have such a soft spot for pretty covers that catch the eye.

Expected Publication: February 24, 2015
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Age Demographic: YA Fantasy
Pages: 336
Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?
To PreOrder a copy of The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury visit Amazon & Barnes&Noble!

Melinda Salisbury lives by the sea, somewhere in the south of England. As a child she genuinely thought Roald Dahl’s Matilda was her biography, in part helped by her grandfather often mistakenly calling her Matilda, and the local library having a pretty cavalier attitude to the books she borrowed. Sadly she never manifested telekinetic powers. She likes to travel, and have adventures. She also likes medieval castles, non-medieval aquariums, Richard III, and all things Scandinavian The Sin Eater's Daughter is her first novel. She can be found on Twitter at @AHintofMystery, though be warned, she tweets often.

You can also find her on Goodreads and Tumblr.
