Waiting on Wednesday (123)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am excited for Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare! I have read all of the books in her Shadowhunter world, and I can't wait to see how this series ends! I have a feeling that it will rip my heart out and tear it to shreds, but I bet it will be worth it. I'm really hoping Julian and Emma both turn out relatively okay. I'm also curious to see what happens with the Mark/Kieran/Christina situation. I also can't wait to see Ty and Kit's relationship develop. They're young now, but I bet it will really flourish in The Wicked Powers. I really hope we get to see the origins of the parabatai curse as well. I'm also super excited, because Cassandra Clare is coming to my area on tour. I already bought a ticket, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to go since it's on the first day of my exams.


What if damnation is the price of true love?

Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the blight that is destroying the race of warlocks.

Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.

Title: The Navigator's Touch
Author: Julia Ember
Series: The Seafarer's Kiss
Release: September 13, 2018
Publisher: Duet Books


After invaders destroyed her village, murdered her family, and took her prisoner, shield-maiden Ragna is hungry for revenge. A trained warrior, she is ready to fight for her home, but with only a mermaid and a crew of disloyal mercenaries to aid her, Ragna knows she needs new allies. Guided by the magical maps on her skin, battling storms and mutiny, Ragna sets sail across the Northern Sea.

She petitions the Jarl in Skjordal for aid, but despite Ragna’s rank and fighting ability, the Jarl sees only a young girl, too inexperienced to lead, unworthy of help. To prove herself to the Jarl and win her crew’s respect, Ragna undertakes a dangerous expedition. But when forced to decide between her own freedom and the fate of her crew, what will she sacrifice to save what’s left of her home?

Inspired by Norse mythology and J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, this companion novel to The Seafarer’s Kiss is a tale of vengeance, valor, honor, and redemption.

Waiting on Wednesday (132)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm excited for Outrun the Wind by Elizabeth Tammi. The first thing that drew me in about this book was definitely the cover. They say don't judge a book by its cover, but I am a sucker for pretty covers. As you can probably guess by my previous WoW picks. I just read the description in full for the first time, and I am suddenly even more excited for this book. I knew it was a fantasy and had to do with the Huntresses of Artemis, but that was about it. Now I know it's about a *lesbian* Huntress of Artemis who saves and proceeds to fall in love with Atalanta. Let me tell you right now, I bet this book is going to be amazing! I definitely can't wait to read it!


The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta. 

To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule.

She helps Atalanta devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage, and word spreads throughout Greece, attracting suitors willing to tempt fate to go up against Atalanta in a race for her hand. But when the men responsible for both the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.
