Waiting on Wednesday: The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana!

A new Fantasy YA based on eastern culture and mythology!

Publication date: July 18th, 2017
Publisher: Razorbill

A romantic coming-of-age fantasy tale steeped in Indian folklore, perfect for fans of The Star-Touched Queen and The Wrath and the Dawn

No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn't enough.

The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.

Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?

I loved The Wrath and the Dawn and The Star-Touched Queen so humfp my expectations are going to be through the roof. I should remember to lower them just in case... I don't want to be disappointed but darn! other cultures are so interesting! As far as I know this is Aditi's second book, being the first Mirror in the Sky (which I completely missed omg).

 What do you think? Have you seen it around? Did you receive ARCs or seen reviews already?

Are you excited about The Library of Fates?
