Waiting on Wednesdayย is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill atย Breaking the Spineย that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives onโ€ฆ.Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa atย Wishful Endingsย and her meme Canโ€™t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m eagerly waiting on Forestborn by Elayne Audrey Becker. I love high fantasy books, and this one in particular sounds intriguing. From the cover to the blurb, I am fully sold on this one. Even early reviews make me want to drop everything and read it ๐Ÿ™‚ What do you think?

A young, orphaned shapeshifter in a world that fears magic must risk everything if she hopes to save her only friend in Elayne Audrey Becker's Forestborn, first in a new fantasy series with a timeless feel.


Rora is a shifter, as magical as all those born in the wildernessโ€•and as feared. She uses her abilities to spy for the king, traveling under different guises and listening for signs of trouble.

When a magical illness surfaces across the kingdom, Rora uncovers a devastating truth: Finley, the young prince and her best friend, has caught it, too. His only hope is stardust, the rarest of magical elements, found deep in the wilderness where Rora grew upโ€•and to which she swore never to return.

But for her only friend, Rora will face her past and brave the dark, magical wood, journeying with her brother and the obstinate, older prince who insists on coming. Together, they must survive sentient forests and creatures unknown, battling an ever-changing landscape while escaping human pursuers who want them dead. With illness gripping the kingdom and war on the horizon, Finleyโ€™s is not the only life that hangs in the balance.
