COLD MAGIC by Kate Elliott
Young Cat Barahal thinks she understands the world she lives in and her place in it, but in fact she is merely poised unaware on the brink of shattering events. Drawn into a labyrinth of politics involving blood, betrayal and old feuds, she will be forced to make an unexpected and perilous journey in order to discover the truth, not just about her own family but about an ancient secret lying at the heart of her world.
The cover alone is reason enough for me to be waiting for this one. Um, hello? Beautiful! Intriguing! Hope it's as good as it looks.
