Waiting on Wednesday #62: Damsel by Elana K. Arnold

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

This week I am waiting on:

Damsel by Elana K. Arnold
October 2nd, 2018, Balzer + Bray
YA Fantasy
Pre-order: Book Depository Amazon
The rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: when the prince-who-will-be-king comes of age, he must venture out into the gray lands, slay a fierce dragon, and rescue a damsel to be his bride. This is the way things have always been.

When Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory, however, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon, or what horrors she has faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome prince, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny to sit on the throne beside him. Ama comes with Emory back to the kingdom of Harding, hailed as the new princess, welcomed to the court.

However, as soon as her first night falls, she begins to realize that not all is as it seems, that there is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows–and that the greatest threats to her life may not be behind her, but here, in front of her.

Omg, have you read the synopsis of this book?!?! READ IT IF YOU HAVEN'T. I just love how the main character is not really the Damsel in Distress because of a dragon but possibly, of the supposed rescuer. 

Eeep! Talk about flipping tropes! I AM READY FOR IT.

What are you waiting on this week? :)
