Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which puts the spotlight on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
I’m rather overdue a Waiting on Wednesday post, and after seeing a video of Sarah J. Maas introducing her new book, A Court of Mist and Fury, on the Waterstones YouTube channel, I thought it was perfect timing for a new WoW post.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Publication date: 3 May 2016 by Bloomsbury Childrens
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Synopsis: Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two. (Goodreads)
Why I’m looking forward to it: I totally fell in love with the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I’m a big fan of Sarah’s Throne of Glass series, so my yearning for this book is par the course. I’m looking forward to seeing how Feyre fares at the Night Court and how she holds up against Rhysand’s charm especially after how things were left at the end of the first book.
The series so far has delivered great drama and has really populated my bookish boyfriends list (Rhysand, Tamlin and Lucien? Yes please!) Plus it has delivered more new adult-esque romance which was really welcome after ToG readers were left a little wanting 😉
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
