Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!
What book am I is-it-here-yet-eagerly-awaiting this week? Ruin & Rising by Leigh Bardugo!!
"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."
Why am I eagerly awaiting Ruin & Rising? Well, I absolutely adored Shadow & Bone and the world it was set in, with the Russian & Slavic references and feel to it, and even though Siege & Storm I didn't love as much as I hoped, I cannot wait to see what's in store for us in this book! I cannot wait to see if Alina will get through her challenges and beat her inner demons!
What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
