Waiting On Wednesday [23]: The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fire

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released.
This week pick is:

The Impostor Queen 
by Sarah Fire
Expected Pub. Date: January 5th, 2016
Margaret K. McElderry Books
Young Adult Fantasy

Sixteen-year-old Elli was a small child when the Elders of Kupari chose her to succeed the Valtia, the queen who wields infinitely powerful ice and fire magic. Since then, Elli has lived in the temple, surrounded by luxury and tutored by magical priests, as she prepares for the day when the Valtia perishes and the magic finds a new home in her. Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.
But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli. It’s nowhere to be found.
Disgraced, Elli flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals—some who would love to see the temple burn with all its priests inside. As she finds her footing in this new world, Elli uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny. Torn between the love she has for her people and her growing loyalty to the banished, Elli struggles to understand the true role she was meant to play. But as war looms, she must align with the right side—before the kingdom and its magic are completely destroyed. 

Why am I waiting?

I've never read anything by Sarah Fire before, but this title grabbed my attention when I was perusing 2016's releases. I'm on a high-fantasy kick lately, and I'm always looking for something of the likes of Sarah J. Maas around. This one sounds like it has potential, so I'm excited about it! 

What do you think about this one?

I'd love to read your thoughts.

Leave me a link to your WoW in the comment section below.
