Waiting On Wednesday (19)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spines, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I looked at my calendar to see what book I wanted to spotlight this week, and saw Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo only a few weeks away and immediately knew that it was my only choice! I'm super excited for this book and have it on preorder from one of my three local indies, Flyleaf Bookstore! Plus, if enough people buy Ruin and Rising from Flyleaf, Leigh might come to the store! I really love this series and can't wait to see what happens to all the characters. Long live The Darkling!


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.

Release: June 17, 2014
