Waiting on Wednesday #10

By 7:23 AM

 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights books whose releases we are eagerly awaiting!
 
The Bitter Kingdom (Fire and Thorns #3)
   by: Rae Carson
 
Greenwillow Books, 400 pages
Expected Publication: August 27, 2013
  
The epic and deeply satisfying conclusion to Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns trilogy. The seventeen-year-old sorcerer-queen will travel into the unknown realm of the enemy to win back her true love, save her country, and uncover the final secrets of her destiny.

"Carson joins the ranks of writers like Kristin Cashore, Megan Whalen Turner, and Tamora Pierce as one of YA's best writers of high fantasy."-Locus magazine

Elisa is a fugitive in her own country. Her enemies have stolen the man she loves in order to lure her to the gate of darkness. As she and her daring companions take one last quest into unknown enemy territory to save Hector, Elisa will face hardships she's never imagined. And she will discover secrets about herself and her world that could change the course of history. She must rise up as champion-a champion to those who have hated her most. Riveting, surprising, and achingly romantic, Rae Carson has spun a bold and powerful conclusion to her extraordinary trilogy.

So, after finishing the second book in the trilogy The Crown of Embers, last week I couldn't resist putting this as my WOW! And let me say to all of you who have already been approved for it on Edelweiss: I am so jealous!! August is so far away to find out what happens with Elisa, Hector, and the fate of her kingdom!! 

What are you guys waiting on this week?

    1. Emily, if you like YA Fantasy, this is a great series to read. Have you read Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass? It's kind of similar to that.
