Waiting On Wednesday (80) Banished by Liz de Jager

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine.
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose: Banished by Liz de Jager

Expected Publication:
February 27, 2014 by Tor UK


Sworn to protect, honour and slay. Because chaos won’t banish itself…

Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s encountered her unorthodox cousins and their strange lives. And her home-schooling now includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons. But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and use her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies. As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love.

Why Am I Waiting? 
I don't read all that many books about the fae but Banished sounds like it's going to be awesome so I knew this would be one I'd have to read. Plus I'm a total sucker for pretty covers and Banished has one of the best that I've seen in recent memory. Also it has an Apocalyptic element which I love as well.
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before? 
If so, Do you plan on reading Banished? 
If you could live in any Fae world which would it be?

Sound off in the comments below. I love to read your responses. 
That about wraps up my Waiting On Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave a link to your Wednesday memes in the comments below, I love finding new books to read. Like what you see? Please share!


  1. Great pick, it's my Waiting On Wednesday choice today too! I follow Liz on Twitter and used to read her blog so have been waiting for this for what feels like a long time! Throw in a plot about the Fae and that gorgeous cover and I'm sold, can't wait to read it :)

  2. I remember seeing this cover for this first time and well what's there not to like. I also like the whole idea and I hope that the realization was as good. Great pick :)

    1. The cover is like a cross between Deception.Shatter Me and that one about the library whose name I can't think of atm. I simply love it.

  3. This sounds sooo good! I think this is the first I've seen this book. I'm totally in love with that cover!!! Great choice! Here's my WOW.

  4. I haven't heard of this book yet, but it definitely sounds interesting! I may have to get a copy shipped to me, just because I'm crazy like that when I find a book that doesn't have a release date in the US. Great pick!

    1. Yep! Thank goodness for sites like Fishpond & The Book Depository.

  5. I hadn't heard of Banished until now but the cover looks so beautiful and interesting and it sounds like it's going to be an interesting read as well.

  8. I'm very curious about this book :) I like the way it sounds and I love the cover! Great pick and thanks for stopping by My WW!

  9. I've always been a fae fan and I like the creepy feel of the cover. Great choice!

  10. Hmmm… fae books are not usually for me but this sounds darker and not so fairy-tale-ish. I hope you get to read it soon and look forward to hearing what you think!

  11. This sounds perfect, I really hope you can get your hands on it soon!! I'll have to grab this when it's released (and hopefully not let it sit on my TBR pile for long lol)
