Waiting On Wednesday: The Oathbreaker's Shadow (The Knots Sequence #1) by Amy McCulloch

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Fifteen-year-old Raim lives in a world where you tie a knot for every promise that you make. Break that promise and you are scarred for life, and cast out into the desert.

Raim has worn a simple knot around his wrist for as long as he can remember. No one knows where it came from, and which promise of his it symbolises, but he barely thinks about it at all—not since becoming the most promising young fighter ever to train for the elite Yun guard. But on the most important day of his life, when he binds his life to his best friend (and future king) Khareh, the string bursts into flames and sears a dark mark into his skin.

Scarred now as an oath-breaker, Raim has two options: run, or be killed.

Amy McCulloch's debut novel will be published June 6, 2013. Since this is her first book I have no idea if it's going to be any good, but it looks very interesting. I bumped into her story while surfing around on Goodreads and the beautiful cover immediately drew me in . After reading the synopsis, I knew this was going on to my to read list. I love adventure stories with some action in it and it's always a bit more interesting for me if the main character and POV is a guy, because it doesn't happen very often. So only 3 months of waiting to go.
