Waiting on Wednesday: Game of Shadows by Erika Lewis

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is :  Game of Shadows by Erika Lewis:

game-ofEthan Makkai thought that seeing ghosts was the worst of his problems. Between his ethereal gift and life with a single mother hell-bent on watching his every move, he feels imprisoned. When Ethan sees a chance to escape, to leave the house by himself for the first time in his life, he seizes it, unaware that this first taste of freedom will cost him everything.

Ethan is thrown into a strange and eerie world, like nothing he’s ever seen. He’s assaulted by dive-bombing birds and rescued by a stranger who claims to be his bodyguard. His apartment is trashed, and his mother is kidnapped to a place Ethan never knew existed—a hidden continent called Tara.

Travelling to Tara in search of his mother, Ethan discovers that everything he knows about his life is a lie. His mother is royalty. His father is not dead. His destiny is likely to get him killed.

Confronted by a vicious sorcerer determined to destroy the Makkai family, Ethan must garner strength from his gift and embrace his destiny if he’s going to save his mother and all the people of Tara, including the beautiful girl he’s fallen for.

Due out February 28th 2017 so not a long wait for this one.

    I like the sound of this too. I think I may have done a WoW post on this a few months ago? So many books, it’s hard to remember:-)

      Tammy – I think you did – I was thinking so when I put this together to be honest!

    I have an arc of this one and I can’t wait to get to it. Love the skull in the background. Hope we both enjoy it!

    Wow, I’ve never heard of this one but it sounds really good! I’ll have to go check it out on Goodreads.

    Yep, I have this on one my TBR, though I may hold off until I hear some reviews 🙂

    Very intriguing: I like the concept of the hidden continent – and the cover’s colors hint both at magic and mystery 🙂

      The cover is great isn’t it – I didn’t even spot the skeleton in the background at first and then my eye was drawn in.

    I’m pretty curious about this one too. Sounds like it could be a different kind of fantasy 🙂
