Waiting on Wednesday: Mystic City by Theo Lawrence
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Mystic City by Theo Lawrence.
Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival
families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her
parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the
generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the
Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished
mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling
in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her
memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to
unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a
gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers
of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her
past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including
herself. (Summary from Amazon.com)
This sounds like a cross between Romeo and Juliet and Switched, except more dystopian. Who doesn't love a good political feud to instigate romance? I also happen to love the cover.
