Waiting on Wednesday: God Save the Queen


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


My selection for this week is:



God Save the Queen by Kate Locke
Publication Date:July 3rd 2012
Publisher:Orbit


Summary from Goodreads:
Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist.
The undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), Hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy. And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns.


Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But when her sister goes missing, Xandra will set out on a path that undermines everything she believed in and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire. And she is the key-the prize in a very dangerous struggle.
What I think:
For some reason, most of the steampunk titles I have picked, weren't the right for me... But that doesn't mean I'll stop drooling over them! And God Save the Queen is definitely worth drooling all over. I just hope that this one, will eventually be the right one :)
