Waiting on Wednesday #25: Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

July 25th 2017, Harlequin Teen
YA Fantasy
A darkly irresistible new fantasy set in the infamous Gomorrah Festival, a traveling carnival of debauchery that caters to the strangest of dreams and desires.

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear. 
I need this book. I NEED IT. Still weeping that Harlequin Teen ignored my request on Netgalley. Whyyyy, Harlequin Teen? I thought we were friends! Doesn't matter though because release date is oh-so-close and I am super excited to finally dive into this amazing book. I just feel that it will be a favorite read, don't you think so? Plus, this cover is ♥♥♥♥♥!

What are you waiting on this week? :)
