Waiting on Wednesday (February 19)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.

This week, I’m waiting on Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo, which has an expected publication date of June 17, 2014.

The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling’s secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

This is easily my most anticipated read of 2014. I absolutely adored Shadow and Bone, and somehow I enjoyed Siege and Storm even more. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to manage waiting until June to find out what happens with Ravka and the Darkling (but mostly the Darkling). And can I just say how gorgeous that cover is?! I need a copy on my shelf ASAP.

    • Haha, it’s an excellent pick, really! 😀
      Me too! I’m slightly worried since I don’t want anything bad to happen to any of the characters, but I’m mostly excited to see what happens next. Ooh, yes! It seems so strange to picture him having an actual name…
