Waiting on Wednesday #108 - The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy McCulloch

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

My Pick: The Oathbreaker's Shadow (The Knots Sequence #1) by Amy McCulloch
Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.

Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all—not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.

Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.

A gripping YA action-adventure fantasy, the first part of a planned duology.
Male POV :) Sounds like an interesting idea!

  1. Great choice. I haven't heard of this book before, it sounds quiet interesting and I like that it's part of a duology.

  2. I haven't seen this one yet. Looks great. Adding to TBR.

  3. Sounds like a great story! How can you break a promise you don't remember making? Looking forward to hearing if the book is as good as it sounds!

    My WoW

  4. I do like male P.O.V.'s, especially in YA novels. I hadn't heard of this one before and it's not something I normally read...but I'm actually really curious about this knot. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great cover!
    Hope you get to read it soon!
