"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I am excited for Shadow and Flame by Mindee Arnett and Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare!
Shadow and Flame by Mindee Arnett is the sequel to last year's Onyx and Ivory! I read Onyx and Ivory for review and absolutely loved it! Fantasy is in right now, and these books are exactly my type. I read the prologue of Shadow and Flame that the author shared a few weeks ago, and I am feeling pretty dead afterwords. I can't wait to read Kate's journey in this book and watch her take on the world!
From acclaimed author Mindee Arnett comes the thrilling conclusion of the stunningly epic, action-packed, and romantic fantasy adventure about a powerful girl possessed of strange magic, the outcast prince she loves, and the kingdom that has torn them apart.
Kate and Corwin are on the run, desperate for allies in a new world of war among the kingdoms of Rime. As the book opens, Kate suffers a massive loss, one that will shape the struggle for freedom of all wilders and magic folk—that is, if Kate can learn to control her own power.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market is an anthology by Cassandra Clare, with contributions from Maureen Johnson, Sarah Rees Brennan, Robin Wasserman, and Kelly Link. Most of the novellas included were previously released as ebooks last year, with a few originals also added into the collection. I've only read one of the novellas so far, and I can't wait to dig into the rest. I'm currently reading The Red Scrolls of Magic, Clare's most recent release. I love the Shadowhunter world and will read anything in it!
The Shadow Market is a meeting point for faeries, werewolves, warlocks and vampires. There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know. Through two centuries, however, there has been a frequent visitor to the Shadow Market from the City of Bones, the very heart of the Shadowhunters. As a Silent Brother, Brother Zachariah is sworn keeper of the laws and lore of the Nephilim. But once he was a Shadowhunter called Jem Carstairs, and his love, then and always, is the warlock Tessa Gray.
Follow Brother Zachariah and see, against the backdrop of the Shadow Market’s dark dealings and festive celebrations, Anna Lightwood’s first romance, Matthew Fairchild’s great sin and Tessa Gray plunged into a world war. Valentine Morgenstern buys a soul at the Market and a young Jace Wayland’s soul finds safe harbor. In the Market is hidden a lost heir and a beloved ghost, and no one can save you once you have traded away your heart. Not even Brother Zachariah...
