Waiting On Wednesday: KING'S CHAMPION by Cas Peace

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
King's Champion
Artesans of Albia, #2
By Cas Peace
Publication Date: August 1, 2012

From publisher's website:

After surviving brutal torture and escaping from Lord Rykan’s dungeons, Major Sullyan is trapped in Andaryon, too injured to cross the Veils. Slowly dying and determined to find some purpose in the shattered remains of her life, she travels to the Andaryan capitol to offer the Hierarch her sword and Artesan gifts in the fight against Rykan and his vast army. Because women hold no power in Andaryon, Sullyan is met with prejudice, hostility, and suspicion. 
Before she can seek vengeance on the field of battle, she must prove herself to the Hierarch’s generals. Finding support from the unlikeliest sources, Sullyan sets a plan into motion to defeat Lord Rykan and end his bid for the throne. The fate of two realms depends on her success, but her strength is fading fast and time is running out.
I absolutely loved King's Envoy, so I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of King's Champion. I mean I love it in a "I want to role-play and write fanfiction in the world" way. If you like fantasy of the sort of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series, then you will likely like Cas Peace's Artesans of Albia.
What's your "waiting on" pick?
