Welcome back to Waiting on Wednesday! WoW is a weekly meme that was started over at Breaking the Spine. Here is what I’m anticipating this week:
One Dark Throne – Kendare Blake
Synopsis (from Goodreads): The battle for the Crown has begun, but which of the three sisters will prevail?
With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.
In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.
Release Date: September 19, 2017
Why I’m waiting: This series, you guys. I had mixed feelings about the first one, Three Dark Crowns, but it’s one of those books that improves upon itself the longer you’ve had to think about it. It was a slow starter, but the final act was mind-blowing. Mind-blowing enough for me to want to get my hands on the sequel ASAP! I have so many theories about the way magic works in this world and of course I’m rooting for my chosen queen, Arsinoe, to take the throne.
What are you waiting on his wonderful Wednesday? Let’s chat!
