Waiting on Wednesday: City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster

Title: City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster
Published by: Harper's Children
Release date: 2013


The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.

Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.

Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life.

Why I want to read it:  Well now, look at that cover!  It sounds like a great fantasy / mystery with a bit of romance too.  Doesn't that sounds like a great combination?  I know it will be published sometime next year, but I can't help but wait for it *sigh*
