Waiting on Wednesday’s a feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight the books we just can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week the book I’m looking forward to the most is:
by Elizabeth C. Bunce

Prisons, poisons, and passions combine in a gorgeously written fantasy noir.
As a pickpocket, Digger expects to spend a night in jail every now and then. But she doesn't expect to find Lord Durrel Decath there as well--or to hear he's soon to be executed for killing his wife.
Durrel once saved Digger's life, and when she goes free, she decides to use her skills as a thief, forger, and spy to return the favor. But each new clue only opens up new mysteries. Durrel's late wife had an illegal business on the wrong side of the civil war raging just outside the city gates. Digger keeps finding forbidden magic in places it has no reason to be.
And for a thief in a town full of liars, sometimes it doesn't pay to know the truth.
Starcrossed was one of my favourite books of 2010 so it goes without saying that I just can’t wait for its sequel. At the end of Starcrossed, I wasn’t completely certain there’d be a sequel, but I knew I desperately wanted to know more about our charming and amoral heroine, Digger and her fantastically drawn world.
Well? We get that sequel in just about two and half months. So if you haven’t read Starcrossed yet, I highly encourage it. You’ve got plenty of time before Liar’s Moon comes out. (Sadly)
