{Waiting on Wednesday+Cover Reveal} KING by Ellen Oh

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine
This event highlights our most-wanted upcoming releases!

KING doesn't have a release date listed yet, 
but the first two books came out December 31st & January 2nd, 
so look for this late December or early January!

Title: KING
Author: Lori M. Lee
Release Date: TBA (Estimating late December/Early January)
Publisher: HarperTeen



I have a confession: I am a bad person. I have wanted to read this series since I first heard about it--before the cover for PROPHECY was ever revealed and the web went wild over it. I always struggle to read books that come out in January. For some reason, there's not a lot of free reading time because I always seem to be slammed with review books/life/etc. So I didn't have time to read PROPHECY. I was like, well, I'll read it together with WARRIOR.
...I still haven't had time to do that. At this point, I may as well wait until KING is out and read all three together, right? (This is what I often rationalize when I get lost in reading like this)

Anyway, I've been dying to read this series forever. It's FINALLY going to happen FOR REAL.

I just can't wait!

The cover for KING was revealed on Monday and it is BEAUTIFUL. I appreciate the way all of Ellen Oh's covers have smoke animals hiding in plain sight for the astute to discover! Here's the new cover in all its glory:


There is no summary revealed for KING yet. Instead, I'm posting the summary for the first book, PROPHECY, to introduce newcomers to the series!

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
