Waiting on Wednesday: City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week my pick is: 

Publisher: Harper Children’s   Publication Date: 2/5/13
The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.

Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Even before I read the synopsis, I knew I wanted to read this just because of that GORGEOUS cover! It reminds me of the gates/sphinxes in The Neverending Story. 🙂 But then I read the word "assassins" and knew this book was going on my TBR. Thanks for sharing!And thanks for stopping by my WoW post! Happy Wednesday! 😀
