Waiting on Wednesday (121): Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles) by Ellen Oh

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles)

Author: Ellen Oh 
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publish Date: January 2, 2013

Publisher Description
The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

Why Jessica wants to read this: A girl in a stereotypical male role will get me every time.  Then add in some demon slaying and I think "I need to get my hands on it!"
