Waiting on Wednesday (55)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Daughter of Chaos by Jen McConnel (3/14):

Description on Goodreads:
Witches must choose the path they will follow, and Darlena Agara is no exception. She’s been putting it off long enough, and in her case, ignoring it has not made it go away. In a moment of frustration, Darlena chooses to follow Red Magic, figuring she had outsmarted the powers that be, since there’s no such thing as Red Magic. But alas, Darlena’s wrong (again) and she becomes a newly declared Red Witch.

Her friends are shocked and her parents horrified by the choice Darlena has made. As a Red Witch, she now governs one third of the world’s chaos. She is the walking personification of pandemonium, turmoil, and bedlam, just as the patrons of Red Magic would have it to be.

But Darlena believes there must be more to Red Magic than chaos and destruction, and she sets out on a journey to achieve balance. Only doing so puts her at odds with the dark goddess Hecate, who simply will not allow Darlena to quit. She encourages Darlena to embrace who and what she is and to leave good magic to the good witches. If only Darlena could, life would be simple, and she would not be the Daughter of Chaos.
Why I’m Waiting:
I sort of came across this title randomly, on Goodreads. It’s not the most enticing cover. But, I’m always on the look for another great witch story. Seriously, I’m tired of the same witch story over and over. And this one sounds utterly and completely unique. I love the idea of her being this witch of chaos. And I love that the goddess, Hecate is thrown in. I’m so ready for this book to come out!
What are you waiting on this week?
