Waiting on The Oathbreaker's Shadow

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Each week bloggers participate to share a book they can't wait to get their hands on.

This week I'm waiting on:

The Oathbreaker's Shadow (The Knots Duology #1) by Amy McCulloch
Expected Publication: February 2015 by Flux (USA)

Preorder Buy Link: Amazon
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.
I love the originality of this summary. I'm in the mood for some gripping sci-fi/fantasy stories.
What are you waiting on this week?
