Waiting on Wednesday (23rd January)


Hi everyone, thank-you so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this weeks WoW is Siege and Storm by the wonderfully talented Leigh Bardugo.

I really enjoyed the first book in The Grisha series, Shadow and Bone (my review) so I’m quite excited to read the sequel.

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)
  Author: Leigh Bardugo
Series: The Grisha
Pages: 448
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co
Genre: Young Adult - Fantasy
Pre-order Amazon: Siege and Storm
Release Date: 4th June 2013

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

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.

What are you waiting on this week?
