Can’t Wait Wednesday: Spotlight on TO KILL A KINGDOM by Alexandra Christo


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo.  This one caught my eye because of that amazing cover and because it sounds so much like The Little Mermaid with a twist and The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite tales.


TO KILL A KINGDOM by Alexandra Christo

Publication Date:   March 6, 2018


From Goodreads:

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

      I haven’t either so I’m really excited for this one. It also has me curious to see if there are other Little Mermaid retellings that I’ve missed out on.

      Doesn’t it? I’ve been trying to cut back a little on the number of ARCs I request, but I couldn’t resist submitting a request for this one.
