Synopsis From Goodreads

In the bleak northern crown of the world, war is coming

Maniye’s father is the Wolf clan’s chieftain, but she’s an outcast. Her mother was queen of the Tiger and these tribes have been enemies for generations. Maniye also hides a deadly secret. All can shift into their clan’s animal form, but Maniye can take on tiger and wolf shapes. She can’t disown half her soul, so escapes – with the killer Broken Axe in pursuit.

Maniye’s father plots to rule the north, and controlling his daughter is crucial to his schemes. However, other tribes also prepare for strife. It’s a season for omens as priests foresee danger, a time of testing and broken laws. Some say a great war is coming, overshadowing even Wolf ambitions. But what spark will set the world ablaze?

Why I am Waiting

Firstly look at that cover! Isn't that such a beautiful cover? Any way I stumbled across this book while browsing amazon the other day and the cover drew me in. However I then read the synopsis and it has some of my favourite situations: daughter of leader as the main character; deathly secrets, unique abilities; political intrigue and conflict. Sounds like quite a ride! I haven't read any of the other book by the author so I have no idea if his writing style is my type but I shall wait and see. Adrian is also UK based (Whoop for UK authors!!) but unfortunately since I didn't find out about this book until a few weeks ago it might be a while before I get around to reading.
