Summary from Goodreads:
Daughter of immortals.
Princess Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mortal. Diana will soon learn that she has rescued no ordinary girl, and that with this single brave act, she may have doomed the world.
Daughter of death.
Alia Keralis just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted by people who think her very existence could spark a world war. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Two girls will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. Tested beyond the bounds of their abilities, Diana and Alia must find a way to unleash hidden strengths and forge an unlikely alliance. Because if they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

I was lucky enough to get to attend another book event put on by Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois. This time it was for Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman.

I should have taken notes and since I haven’t had a chance to post this until now, I’ve pretty much forgotten what I wanted to mention. She did talk about what inspired her to write and talked a little bit about the next book she’s working on (it sounds so awesome).

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating.
The book I’m picking this week doesn’t have a cover yet, but after meeting Leigh Bardugo last night, I’m really looking forward to this one.
Ninth House (Alex Stern #1) by Leigh Bardugo
The new series centers on Alex Stern, a 20-year-old California high school dropout with a criminal past who is mysteriously offered a second chance as a Yale University freshman. Ninth House, the first book, follows Stern’s freshman year, where she is charged with monitoring Yale’s secret societies, who engage in sinister occult activities.
There is no set release date yet, but hopefully it will be in 2018 and not 2019. Leigh talked about it a little last night and it sounds awesome.
