Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read!
My pick is Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo!
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
*tries not to hyperventilate* I am so ridiculously excited for this to come out. I adored Shadow and Bone. It's one of the best fantasy books I've ever read. I want to read this sequel so badly!
And the cover! Gah! It is so, so perfect. I'd seen the old cover for this floating around on Goodreads, you know, with the green-ish colors, I think? But they said it wasn't the final cover. Then, recently, they released this stunning cover and I love it sooo much! The font, the colors, the design, it's all gorgeous.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
