“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on. This week’s pick is:
A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes #3)
Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion—even at the cost of his humanity.
Why I’m Waiting:
I have been waiting for this book since finishing A Torch Against the Night (which I just realized when I went to link my review I can't find that I never reviewed it....no idea how that happened) back in October of last year. I’ve had to wait OVER a year! And with the ending…this date needs to hurry up and get here. All sorts of stuff is breaking lose and I need to know what is happening. Side note...I don't hate the cover but I HATE cover changes in the middle of a series!!!! Why? Now my books won't match :(
What are you waiting on? Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.
