Waiting on Wednesday #6

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

Here's what I'm waiting...

City of Swords (Stravaganza #6)
by Mary Hoffman

Desperately unhappy, Laura has resorted to secretly self-harming. But Laura is a Stravagante, somebody who can travel in time and space. When she finds her talisman, a small silver dagger, she stravagates with it to sixteenth-century Fortezza, a town similar to Lucca in Italy, where she meets her Stravagante, who is a swordsmith. But Laura also meets the charming and attractive Ludo, and falls for him. Their love for each other is tested when Ludo lays claim to the crown of Fortezza, and Laura finds herself fighting on the side of the Stravaganti opposing him.

I honestly can't wait for this one. I already have it on pre-order from TBD and it seems it will arrive earlier than the expected pub date. I have loved the world of the Stravaganti from the very first book 10 years ago. Currently I am reading book #5, I kept postponing reading it until the next one was out. If you haven't read any of the Stravaganza books, you might want to get to them, especially if you love sixteenth-century Italy, magic and time traveling.

What are you Waiting on this Wednesday?
