Waiting On Wednesday: Promise Of Shadows

Promise of Shadows
Author: Justina Ireland
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Expected Publication: March 11, 2014

Zephyr Mourning has never been very good at being a Harpy. She’d rather watch reality TV than learn forty-seven ways to kill a man, and she pretty much sucks at wielding magic. Zephyr was ready for a future pretending to be a normal human instead of a half-god assassin. But all that changes when her sister is murdered—and she uses a forbidden dark power to save herself from the same fate.
Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.
But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?
My Thoughts: I've never actually read a book about a Harpy so this instantly caught my attention (That awesome cover also helped)! Needless to say I'm excited for this one =)


  1. A Harpy that likes reality TV shows? Sounds good to me! ~Pam

  2. I think this one sounds so unique and I've never read anything about a harpy either. That cover is gorgeous too! Great pick!

  3. Whoa, a harpy? That sounds awesome. I hadn't heard of this one but I will have to check it out!


  4. I'm really excited for this one, too. That cover is so pretty. I'm honestly not sure I know what a harpy is exactly, but I guess I'll find out. Great pick!
