The Waking Land by Callie Bates

The Blurb On The Back:

Magic.  Romance.  Revolution. 

It’s been fourteen years, since King Antoine took Elanna hostage.  Fourteen years since her father’s rebellion failed.  Fourteen years spent being raised by the man who condemned her people to misery.

Now twenty, Elanna is about to be taken prisoner once again … but this time by her father.

He wants to reignite his rebellion, this time using Elanna as a figurehead.  He will tell his followers she is the legendary Wildegarde reborn, a sorceress who could make the very earth tremble.

But what no one knows is that magic really does flow through Elanna’s veins.  Now she must decide which side she’s on, and whether she’ll use her powers for mercy … or revenge.
