The Thorn and the Sinking Stone
by C.J. Dushinski
Release Date: March 2015
Summary from Goodreads:
Warring families. Forbidden love. And danger they can’t escape…
Daggers. Roses. Cowboys. Boat Men. Survivors of Earth's Last War, four “families” vie to rule the dreary streets of Rain City through violence and blood. Valencia Hara, Princess of the wealthy Black Roses, is raised in warrior ways with sharpened steel. But she is no ordinary Rose. She is Cursed—tainted with the ability to see seconds into the future…
To avenge his father's death, Sebastian Leold, of the rival gang Two Daggers, must face off against the Black Princess, he with his dagger, she with her katana sword. Yet a secret from a shared past leaves him unable to kill beautiful Valencia; nor can she kill him. For they once knew each other beyond their blood feud…and they have more secrets in common than they know.
But in a world filled with vengeance and violence, there can be no room for love…
The summary pretty much got my attention with the mention of "Daggers. Roses. Cowboys and Boat Men" Add to this a dystopian setting with rival "families" and a warrior princess with a katana sword, the blood feud and of course the rogue Sebastian and I'm very excited to check this new book out.
