Waiting on Wednesday (2): Shadow and Bone

Waiting on Wednesday (2): Shadow and Bone 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine to highlight upcoming eagerly anticipated book releases 


So I've heard great things about:

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Expected publication Date: June 5, 2012
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (Imprint of Macmillan)
From Goodreads: 
Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.
Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life - a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha...and the secrets of her heart. 




It had me at "monsters who feast on human flesh" because I'm morbid like that. But seriously, monsters, magic and mayhem how can you go wrong... Plus it's release date is June 5 so I don't have to wait very long! 

What's your waiting on Wednesday?
