Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases the upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
MY PICK FOR THIS WEEK
Release Date: December 15 2015
Rebels, royals, and monsters wage war over the Mytican throne in the shocking fourth book of the Falling Kingdoms series, from New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes.
CLEO: Reeling after a bloody showdown in Limeros ending with Amara’s abduction of the water crystal, and a vacancy in the Mytican throne, Princess Cleo must cast aside her feelings and look toward her kingdom with the eyes of a Queen.
MAGNUS: With the kingdom in chaos, Princess Lucia still missing and quite possibly in danger, and a shocking realization about Cleo, the steely prince is once again torn between love and duty, leaving him wondering whether he’s strong enough to rule his people.
LUCIA: The young sorcercess has had her vengeance after the cruel death of her first and only love. Heartbroken and unable to trust anyone, she allies with the awoken Fire god, who also seeks revenge.
JONAS: After escaping death by the skin of his teeth, the defeated rebel—along with a mysterious stranger–leader reunites with Princess Cleo, only to find himself a mere pawn in a dangerous hunt for the elusive Kindred.
KING GAIUS: Abandoned by Melenia and betrayed by his own children, Gaius flees Mytica and sails to Kraeshia, where he attempts to ally with the famously brutal emperor across the Silver Sea.
why i am waiting
I really, really love The Falling Kingdoms series – I am not really sure why it has grabbed my attention so either. It’s a decent fantasy series but I have read a lot of fantasy over the years. There is just something about the characters that draws me in and I admit to shamelessly shipping Cleo and Magnus – and I am not normally that much of a shipper either! Something about their antagonistic back and forth just really appeals to me.
This right here sums it up for me lol. I am also quite fond of some of the other characters (except for Lucia – she can go just go fall off a cliff or something). I am really looking forward to the fourth book – December seems like a really long time away!
