Waiting On Wednesday: The Veiled Man's Goddess (Amy McNulty)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

My pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection this week won't release for quite a while (2015, to be exact), but it'll be worth the wait! 

Title: The Veiled Man's Goddess
Author: Amy McNulty
Publisher: Month9Books
Release Date: April 2015

In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Where the rest of her village celebrates this mystery that binds men and women together, seventeen year old Noll is just done with it. She’s lost all her childhood friends as they’ve paired off, but the worst blow was when her closest companion, Jurij, finds his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever loved her: she is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a Byronic man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him and who has the power to fight the curse. Thus begins a dangerous game between the two: the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither Noll nor the veiled man is willing to lose. 

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: This book. THIS BOOK. The premise is so original and magical and different from anything I have ever come across - and it is EXACTLY my kind of story. I know it doesn't come out until next April (*sob*), but I wanted to put this book on everyone's radar now because I think it's going to be epic. So don't be surprised to see this book pop up on this blog again in the future (and be a repeat WoW pick when the cover releases ;).

So what book are you waiting on?
